I recently picked up a brand new unfired custom built rifle put together by Hart barrels. Its on a trued, squared, etc.... teflon coated Remington action, 26" fluted 10 twist #7 contour barrel, bedded Mcmillan A2 stock, Remington 40x trigger, Ken Farrell 20 moa base, Leupold tactical rings, chambered in 30-06. The rifle is on its way as I write this. All in all it sounds like a great rifle but Im not sure what Im going to use it for. I already have an all out custom 6.5x284 that shoots great that I primarily use for deer size game. I was maybe looking at using this rifle as a long range elk gun but 30-06 isn't exactly ideal for this. I discussed it with my smith and he said it would be no problem reaming the chamber out to 300 win mag or something similar. So Ill get to my point of this thread, what would you do? Here are some of the possible options I have been thinking about. Any other suggestions not listed below would be great also.
Option A: Ream it out to 300 win mag, use it as a 1,000 yard elk gun and shoot targets out to as far as I can.
Option B: Sell the barrel and get a 7mm tube and build something like a 280ai or 284 win.
Option C: Sell 30 cal barrel and get a 7mm tube in 8.5 twist and chamber it for the 195 gr berger. Not sure what cartridge yet.
Option D: Sell 30 cal........ and get a 33 cal tube and build an edge or rum.
Option E: Leave it alone and shoot it.
Any input would be appreciated, as you can already tell I really have no clue what I want to do. It was such a good deal I couldn't pass it up.
