Another which one quandary
Alright, here we go. I'm really torn on which direction to go with this.
I've tossed around the idea of a 300 win mag build but I really want to push the 200 grain class bullets to around 3050-3100fps. Without using a six foot tube is this possible in something more like 27" or so. My other thought was doing something along the lines of a 30 STW or 30-8mm mag, which ever it goes by. I'm not really looking at having to fire form cases as I already have a couple of those.
Here's where I get stubborn. I know the 300 weatherby is exactly the numbers I'd be looking for but I just can't do it. Nothing against 'em, I just plain don't want one, (why I don't know). The other issue is, I could just down load the 300 RUM but I've never been able to do that. If it says "Magnum" on the thing, I can't help myself and always seem to want to make it shoot that way.
It would be off of a Rem 700 mag action, so I'm not sure about overall lengths and such just yet so I am asking for advice. I really want to stick to a 308 cal using the 200 to 210 grain bullets. Thanks in advance for the help as my forehead is getting sore from pounding it against the wall.........
