Most pasta packages state that a single serving is 2 oz. There are 16 oz in a pound, so one pound would serve 8 people. If you divide 300 by 8, you get 37.5 pounds. So, just to be sure you have enough, I'd suggest at least 40 pounds of dry pasta. Possibly more depending on the appetites of your guests.
