Re: Gunsmith question for 300 wsm...

My smith talked me into a tight body .308 and a tight neck 300WSM. Never again. I shoot straight SAMMI spec chambers. I am just as accurate w/o having to go the extra steps of small body sizing and neck turning. K.I.S.S is my motto!

I can agree on a no turn neck but going SAMMI spec is a turnoff for me. I prefer to specify the throat angle and how much freebore. I also supply a dummy round to the reamer maker, PT&G. Have been very happy with the results.
