Also i found these stocks and really like them what do you guys think.

You'll probably need the 20 MOA rail with that scope if 1000 is your goal.

BTW good powders for the 210 in the 300 WSM are H4831SC, RL22, and IMR 7828 SSC.

Re: Got a new toy

Ok Stock is ordered from the company listed above the thing i liked was the fact that because my right eye is messed up and i need to shoot lefty they are custom making a left hand shooter stock for the right had action for me. I cant wait till it gets here gonna be prob three months but it is gonna look great hope it is as good as it looks.
Going to pick the gun up tomorrow from the store. Got a 20 moa scope mount ordered from Midway USA. Got some powder on the way both imr 4350 and superformance powder (just interested in seeing how it works). Got some dies ordered gonna try the 168 interbonds and the 210 bergers. Anybody try the sierra game king rounds i have never shot them of any weight just wondering what people think of them as they are very inexpensive compared to bergers and such.
Im not huge into reloading so looking for something that is easy to load for and not really picky.
Thanks again guys

Re: Got a new toy

Don't use the Final Finish on a nice rifle like this. It's not likely to make an improvement and could cause unnecessary throat errosion. There are a few desperate situations where I might give it a try.

Why can't this rifle be a 1,000yd shooter out of the box?

All you need is a good 20 MOA rail, quality glass, and match grade ammo or handloads.

All of the suggested improvements are great. But, you may be surprised just how good it shoots out of the box.

Re: Got a new toy

Picked it up the other day from the store i like it even more then i thought i would.
Wondering about barrel break in can i load up just cheap FMJ rounds to break it in or should it be done with better bullets then that. Also was looking at scopes i really like the Vortex Viper PST in 6-24 with the MOA reticle but i also like the Millett LRS but it looks big and bulky and not sure if id Like the MILS instead of MOA but half the price is a nice thing. Any thoughts?

For me it doesn't matter. Some guys say you should break in with what your using, others like me say it doesn't matter. I personally broke mine in w/ fmj's and then started using my good bullets. No sense in wasting valuable products. Your barrel will change dramatically from shot #1 to shot #50. Mine really didn't start coming together until around 150rds, but I saw its potential and what it like around 75rds. Now that I am into the 1200rd mark, it is .25-.75MOA with just about every load I put through it. Nice rifle. Can't wait to see it does.

Other than smoothing lands , which is also very much silly, I don't believe that there is anything bullets, a brush, or a certain oil can do that a machinist hasn't already. Doesn't make sense.
