You guys are a bad influence

Largely due to browsing here I've been complaining to my wife for nearly a year over the discontinuation of the Sendero. I'd decided I was going to get a 300 WSM custom-built in a 700 action, but that it would have to wait another year until we got together a house downpayment.

We were in Cabela's today, where I once again oggled the 300 RSAUM Sendero they've had there for nearly a year (down to $750). She convinced me I should get it for my birthday instead of waiting (what a keeper!). Then we were looking for ammo, and I complained that even Cabelas only had 2 boxes of RSAUM ammo. So she suggested I spend $100 more to get one in 300 WinMag, my second-choice cartridge.

So I got one for about $875, which I hope wasn't way over-priced. Much cheaper than the custom package I was looking at. It'll be topped with a $60 Bushnell for awhile until I can afford better glass, but that should be good enough for load development. Watch out, elk. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    She's a keeper, alright! But don't forget you gotta get her a wall for you to hang that 300 on. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

    That's exactly what I was going to do, but what the heck. 300WinMag is a proven cartridge, and I've heard that it's hard to shoot 200gr pills from the WSM without sacrificing too much powder capacity (if I wanted to shoot 200gr pills). I wanted to stay in the short action too, but this was just quicker (and CHEAPER) all around. Though I'm stuck with the long action now, I can always rebarrel to WSM if I shoot out this barrel.

    Now to decide on base and rings, so I can mount the $60 Bushnell on it until I can afford good glass...
