300wsm

Well just got the new 300WSM last Thrursday from the gunmsith. Win 70 action,McMillian stock, Kreiger CM #3 5r 1/11.25 twist finished 26" long should be a nice deer/elk rifle. I plan on shooting some 165gr Accubond and 168gr TSX then move up to 180gr bullets see how it does.

I used a Broughton 5c 1/12 twist 24" long barrel on my other 300WSM be interesting to see how the Kreiger does.

Is anyone else shooting one of those new Kreiger 5r barrels?

Re: 300wsm

Congrats!! Why the 11 1/4 twist vs a 10 twist? Sounds like a bitchen rifle!
I cant wait to get enough $ scraped togather to build one of my Model-70's. Ive been planning on re-doing my Model-70, 300wby. But I own a 270wsm, and like it so much that I want a 300wsm instead of the 300wby. I love those short fat little beltless cartriges. Maybe I need both.
Keep us informed on the performance. I cant wait to see some groups and critters.

I got hooked on the 1/11 twist barrels back in the early 80's here a clip on the Kreiger 5r
