Re: .300 Win Mag

Do not get me wrong, absolutely nothing wrong with redding seater or dies. But by the same token, nothing wrong with the Forester bonanza and retail for the micrometer seater is $47.

as for your question on bases and rings, it is simple. the bottom of the bases are tapered in relationship to the top and this adds the moa depending on the amount of taper. Similar thing for the rings, the signature rings use a series of plastic inserts that wrap around the scope tube and are inside the metal scope rings and they are different thickness. By following the instructions on which one to put in what ring (front or back) and whether it is on top or bottom of the scope, you can get 20-30 moa and not even touch the scope adjustments.

Good luck

Rem

1. Buy the Forester Bonanza BR dies or at least the micrometer seater at half the cost of the Redding. you can have the dies converted to use Redding bushings for $35 by Jim Carstenson at JLC Precision at 13095 450th Ave, Bellevue, Iowa 52031

2. Set realistic accuracy goals for a factory rifle of 3/4 MOA and be very happy with 1/2. Now you may better that, but doubt you get consistent 1/4.

3. Pick one bullet, work the load to your goals and stay with it.

4. Factory barrls are rougher than custom and may break in easy or very difficult, generally the breakin is fire one, clean, for 10 rds, then 3 for 15 rds and then 5 shot groups.

4. Do not under any circumstance attempt to lap or let anyone else lap the barrel. Quick way to ruin a barrel. The custom barrel makers do it, but the guy doing it has done literally thousands. If you are set on it, buy the Fire Lapping system from David Tubbs website for $29 and proceed cautiosly and according to instructions.

5. By the Sinclair book, Sinclair Internationals Reloading and Shooting Handbook, 10 edition for $12.95 and Precision Shooting at 1000 Yards for $34.95. Both sold by Sinclair International and best info for starting out.

6. If you gun is not shooting good, by 200 rds it is only going to get worse, not better at 1000 plus, particularily in a big magnum. Most 1k BR barrels are changed by 1500-2000 rds in many cases.
