Thank you WyoWhisper,
I will take that as a complement.
Your old 300 WSM
M40 clone is just the right kind of rifle for what I like to do.
I am going to have a 300 WSM put together with the M40 stock and a 28" bbl #7 or #8 straight taper for the extra long shots. Probly a 12 or 11 twist. These kind of rifles to me are not "heavy" they are just right. 17-20 pounds is a heavy rifle. I like these kinds of set ups because they work.
P.S. Nice deer in the yard you have there. How hard is it for a guy to find mule deer hunting
opprotunities in Wyoming? (no secret spots or anything) just a nice 25-30" 4x4.
