It`s those small details that you guys have pointed out that make the difference . I hate it when you get the gun and find those details out later. I have done that too many times.
I just double checked before posting, the long range hunter in .300 wm has a twist rate of 10"how will that work as Kcebcj said 11 is whats recommended as I would like to shoot the 210 LRAC
if you go to a more powerful cartridge you need the same or higher level of accuracy. the 111 is not a Remington sendero. .
