300 RUM on the way!

I finally found the rifle I was looking for at a great price. I have a Remington LSS in 300 rum on the way. I am going to order a rail and some rings this morning and the reloading stuff that I am going to need. I plan to shoot 200 TTSX out of it. The scope that is going on it is a zeiss rapid z 800.

Re: 300 RUM on the way!

I am afraid its probably out of my price range, but a sweet looking rig. Plus I just sent out the check for the LSS I agreed to buy... so for now I will be rocking a factory 300 ultra.

Re: 300 RUM on the way!

Great choice on the lss. Just a heads up almost all of the lss. 300rums had a lot of freebore. Mine would not shoot vlds anywhere near mag length. Oh, and if you are gonna run heave pills I would have somebody lined up to put a break on it cause it will kid the piss outta you.

I'm gonna shoot the 200 ttsx. They like some bullet jump so Hopefully it works out. If not ill get an extended magazine box.

I'm jumping the 200g LRX quite a ways (.22") in my Sendero and they're shooting .7 MOA consistently. Hopefully your LSS is similar.
