.300 Rum

Way excited my .300 RUM is almost done. Trevor @ Cloud Peak Gunworks has been building my guns. This one has a Brux Barrel, Timney Trigger, Wyatt box, Sako Extractor, H&S Stock, Muzzle Break, Cerakoted Graphite, Spiral fluted bolt, Huskemaw Scope. I am going to run Berger 185's just because I have 5 boxes of them. Ultimately I would prefer to run the Berger 215's but we will see how they shoot. [ATTACH][ATTACH][/ATTACH][/ATTACH]

I think its a 4? I will have to ask him. I ask him to make me a shooter and he does exactly that! I have a 7mm CPG also and it shoots reaaaaaaal good!

Nice looking rig!

I wouldn't worry too much about using the Berger 185's. I use the 185 gr. Juggernaut OTM Tactical in my 300 Jarrett with great success long range. Very tough bullet BTW.

Great looking rifle! I shot the 185gr Berger's in my 300RUM and they shot good, so I think you should be ok with them.
