Another vote for a savage. The next gun I build I'm going to try a savage. Get a good trigger from sss, barrrel and stock. Then bed it and put some nice glass on it.

I need the .300 winchester magnum because I will be shooting big game like big elk and small moose at up to 500 yards.

Hi i would also go with a Remington Sendaro Bed and true the action and have a muzzle break fitted along with a re crown also have the trigger adjusted and honed but i would not go with the 300 Win MAg go with the 300 Ultra MAg as it will give you much more energy and also shoot heavier projectiles faster allowing you to have less wind drift and the wind drift is the factor that is the hardest to exactly estimate as laser range finders can get your elevation spot on so you only have to wory about wind. I would also use the new Wildcat 210gr ULD projectiles Richare has excelled in his new design they should perform awsome on game with much higher BC's or go the old faith full the 240gr Sierra MAtchKing they should stabalise in the factory barrel fine and most sendaro's shoot well under 1/2MOA with the bedding and truing.

Cheers Bill

PS i am sory i could never own a Savage no matter how well it shoots. They are so ugley their mother could not even love them. And the aftermarket barrels that you are getting as pre fit are only as good as a good factory sendaro barrel. If you fit a new barrel make it a Match Barrel or leave the factory barrel where it is.
