Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    it's long enough to shoot the 180's well and I wouldn't use any heavier than that.
    if memory serves me correctly I think most reamers for 180's are .188

    Is that with the bottom of the shank below the neck/shoulder junction?

    I honestly don't know (I should) with .188 or a .190 marked on the reamer you have about .200 bearing serface left in the neck when you jam seat a 180 berger.

    My Caliber choice is hard I chose the .284 but would be almost just as happy with a
    7SAUM or 7WSM or 300WSM

    I just liked the shootability and the barrel life of the .284 a pinch more.

    What would you want?
    Action?
    Stock/Stocks?
    Barrel?
    Trigger?
    Rings/Mounts?
    Scope?
    and
    Chamber?

    Just curious what everyone thinks
    I'm working my way to a ELR rifle, Raptor action from Kirby, Manners MCS-T5A, HS Precision DBM, Brux med Palma at 30in with Muscle Brake.
    Jewel trigger, Nightforce rings, Nightforce NXS 5.5-22x56 with NP-R1 and chambered up in 338 Norma Mag set up for 300gr Berger.
    Not building it for shooting close so I better through in a Vectronix range finder
