Re: first built gun, need advice
at the very shortest you want a 26 inch barrel, 28 would be a good length if you do not want a longer one. I started with 180 gr bullets and now use 210 gr bullets in my 300 RUM. A 1-10 twist will be fine with the 180-210 gr bullets.
I put a DE brake on my 300 Rum and LOVE it!!
My 300 RUM is a factory gun with a 26" barrel, HS stock that has been bedded. I shot a 1.5 inch group with it at 300 yars on plate steel last fall.
When I rebarrel my 300 RUM i will get a brux, i have one on my 338 Edge and love it!!!!!!!! Brux guys are GREAT to work with and know what they are talking about.
Hope this helps
