My thought is that if it is good enough to handle the rum and the edge, why can't it handle the Lapua, which is technically a smaller capacity round than the edge? Just a thought.

Re: 300 mag complete!

I'm not disagreeing with you. I'm just repeating what I read. i have no practical knowledge in this endeavor. It doesn't seem like it would be that big of a deal other than taking the bolt off to eject a live round.

Re: 300 mag complete!

Thanks again for all the kind words guys. It's nice to have people ooing and aahhing at my gun for once, I know I do it a lot to others peoples guns. I dont know why but the edge does something more for me than the lapua, although if I cam eacross a lapua for a good deal i would not look the other way.

Re: 300 mag complete!

Here's a question for you guys. I have a Harris bipod on my 300 mag that I have had for quite a while. With the flat forend of my stock, I cant tighten the bipod that much and it is easy to move it back and forth. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks!

My brother has a Sendoro in 300 Win mag and gets under 1/2" groups with the 190 Berger over 72.2 gr. RE22. I have a hart barreled 300 win mag and I am shooting in the .380 range using the same load only with 72.5 gr.
When I had my rifle built I asked Hart where to start for a good consistent load and that is where we ended up. Remington 9 1/2 bench rest primers lowered the SD and ES considerably compared to the CCI version.

For the most part, that is exactly what I want to build. Do you have a price list/source for all of the stuff you bought? I am pretty sure I am going with the 300WM but I am also toying with the idea of the 338 WM.

Re: 300 mag complete!

Here is the list:

Savage 110fp - $600, wally world
Stockade prairie dog special - $400, Stockade
IOR Heavy Duty Steel Rings - $100, SWFA
SWFA SS 10x - $300, SWFA
Harris bipod - bought it a long time ago and don't remember price, $60 - $80?

The 300 mag is a great round, I think it would be better for long range than the .338 win mag. When I get a lot more proficient with it, I will upgrade to a RUM or Edge. I do need to get it bedded. I dont know if I want to try it myself or pay to make sure it's done right.
