First LRG build .300rum ???????

O.K this is what I got Stevens/savage rifle in .300 win mag. to be re-barreled,SSS comp. trigger, Pac-Nor 26" w/timed brake barrel chambered in .300rum 1/10 twist. Plan on bushnell or nikon for glass. My ? is will this make a good rig and I'm new to the loading game what would be some good starting points with 210 bergers.

Thanks

Re: First LRG build .300rum ???????

You might consider a 9 or 8 twist if you want to take advantage of higher BC bullets that may become available. You will want target turrets on the scope and if you can afford better glass then get better glass but the elite should do OK. But a braked barrel puts negative G's on a scope (from what I understand) and not all scopes are built to handle that. A 300 RUM will put a scope to the test for sure.

Otherwise, if it's put together well, it should do good.

Welcome to LRH and good shooting,

Mark
