30 Cal Build

Ok so I ordered a 30 Cal Kreiger ,in varmit contour, blank about 2 months ago. It is now shipping my way so I have to figure out what to build. If you could build any 30 cal what would it be and how long of a finished length. I Have a 2-300wm/1-300WSM and 2-308s so Im thinking maybe another 300wsm. Oh and I reload so wildcats arent and issue. Please help me decide.

I second that.

Search for Elkaholic's thread on the 30-375 SI (Sherman Improved).

That is what I would build if I had the opportunity.

Do you have an action to use yet? If not..... Why not go real big with the 300 Norma Improved? Sounds fun, Haven't seen a lot of them & that cartridge screams sexy....

300 Weatherby. Ammo available in a pinch too.

Check the ballstics out. I was comparing them to a 300wm and quite impressed.

Re: 30 Cal Build

What about the 300 rum. I was looking at the ballistics and it's pretty hard to beat and it would be easier to find components.
