I can't shoot with a break on a rifle (subconscious flinch) though I wish I could for when Iím sighting it in or changing ammo. My LH Win Model 70 .300 WSMís nick name is the mule. Itís totally abusive and not even pleasant to shoot, but is it deadly accurate. Like most any rifle when shooting hogs or deer I never notice the brutality of the kick. Even Chad Dixon at LongRifles Inc said after he rebarreled my 300 WSM it was one of the most abusive rifles heís ever had the displeasure of pulling the trigger on! I originally thought it was the Win Featherweight stocks so I had Accuracy Innovations build me a AAA grade exhibition walnut Weatherby MK 5 style stock. Gorgeous stock, still kicks like mule!
I donít reload so I use factory ammo. My rifle loves Fed Premium 168 & 180 gr Barnes triple shock bullets. Both of these give me consistent half moa accuracy at 100 yards for 3Ē groups.
