Rich, I'm supposed to be getting another standard LA 700 from a buddy of mine, that owes me some money. He was gonna give me his .300 WM action, but instead decided to build another magnum (which put my .300 Ackley build on hold for now), so looks like I'll be getting another LA standard.
I do have a new take-off 26" heavy 1:12 .308 barrel sitting in my barrel bin, that I have debated on reaming out to .300 Sherman for that new LA when I get it from my buddy. I figured it might be perfect for shooting maybe 210 VLD's (if they'll stabilize...), or 168-185gr VLD's. I bet that .300 Sherman will SCREAM some 168 VLD's.
The .300 Sherman would make an excellent deer cartridge, and would help me utilize all of my .30-06 range brass I've picked up over the last couple years...
