Re: .300 wby suggestions
First thing put a Limbsaver pad on it, then work on finding a load it likes to take the cost of shooting down. I have one that puts 180 gr. SST's in 1/2" at 100 yards. I am not a fan of the brake as I don't want to wear hearing protection when hunting. Use good shooting position and the recoil isn't bad at all.
The difference between people who do stuff and people who don't do stuff is people who do stuff do stuff.
