Re: 300 WSM here to stay? or did I make a mistake

all thanks for the advice. I ended up buying the X-bolt hunter 300 WSM. I have to say, the rifle just feels good in my hands. I really enjoyed my A-bolt, but the X-bolt feels better...from the build quality to the trigger and the recoil pad. The true test will be accuracy. I will probably buy a few different brands to start off with.

As for reloading....it does interest me, but my new job has got me working so much I barely get any range time let alone reloading time. Hopefully some day I will have more free time.

Thanks again!

I just got a 300wsm upper for an AR and I love it. The 180 Accubon does quite well in it.

reloading starter kits can be reasonable even at Cabelas. I have a very old CH press. that was 35$ at a gun show. have also found several presses at pawn shops good shape needing a good tear down and cleaned is all. Imo wouldn't buy a powder scale from a pawn shop that would be bit scary, if scale is off slightest bit could be very dangerous. good luck with your rifle
