Some .300 WM rifles.

Got a question here. I'm getting a .300 WM, but can't figure out any of the good rifles. I would really appreciate some recommendations on the best (in your opinion) .300 WM rifles. Don't worry about the shooting or terrain or anything, just think about what rifle would be best for shooting antelope, big elk, huge deer, maybe the occasional moose, all at around 500-700 yards. Thanks again.

Price doesn't matter, weight can be up to about 30 pounds. Class doesn't matter either.

Re: Some .300 WM rifles.

Any particular reason your choosing the 300Win mag?

For an off the shelf rifle I'd say the Sendero from Remington or the BVSS from Savage they both have a proven track record in the accuracy department.

But if price is not an issue then I'd build a custom

Have a custom built. Use a Rem action. Shilen, or Krieger 28" barrel, H-S stock. Just throwing out some top noch products. I think you should be able to build a pretty good rifle for that Price. Find a good custom builder in your area.

I'm not good with gunsmiths, long story. I just need to know some rifles I can just buy.

Here is a link to the remington site, if you are willing to spend the money, you may as well go all out and get a 40 xb or something like that.
