Re: which model to get in 300RUM????
If I had to get a factory 300 RUM... Sendero, and I would never look back. Savage is good, but there are TONS of after market goodies you can get for a 700 and if you ever take it to a smith, the 700 action cleans up real nice. A 700 trigger is a good trigger, they just need an adjustment. That is 1 nice thing about the savages. They have a good trigger. It is possible to achive 3500 FPS with the 300 RUM with a 165. I would be EXTREMELY carfull as to which bullets and what powder. A 165 Nosler ballistic tip will generate a smidge less pressure than most 165's therefore making it possible to get a LITTLE extra velocity. You would be much better off sticking to 3350 to 3450 with the 165 in a factory stick, especially with the tight twists they put in em [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
