Re: 300 WSM Any comments?

Big Sky,

heres my thinking, if your barrel is too hot to touch and accuracy becomes irratic whats the purpose of excessive shooting. My new rifle is designed for hunting its very lightweight and there is no need I feel to go shoot twenty rounds in a hour. I have tested a few relaoded recipes and have had success within my testing. Why change a good thing?

Another thing, I am fortunate enough to belong to a range that i can go to for a few hours after work anytime I wish, so again no need to shoot a multitude of rounds at each shooting. Another point, shooting three shots and checking a target at 500 yards takes more than enough time and darkness sometimes causes a conflict. I guess if I was a 1000 yard target shooter my equipment and practice routines would change.

Big Sky, hows the weather up there? Any ducks?

Re: 300 WSM Any comments?

Well from your situation that makes sense to me. Yup there's always a few ducks and geese around. I'm not much of a duck hunter so I couldn't tell you if there numbers are up or down. Only that I see just as many in the regular places as usual. Some friends tell me that the goose hunting has been great so far. Got side tracked by some numbers in your original post and forgot to congratulate you on getting that buck. You don't have any photos you would post do you?

I pick up scrap iron from time to time from the local junk dealer. $0.20 a pound for most anything I did out of his pile.
