Re: Which Factory 300 Win Under $1k?

I was in the same boat as you wanted an 300wm to fill the empty slot in my safe. I just bought a rem700 5r, actually I got it a week ago today. I havn't shot it yet as I am still working with my 308, so many guns so little time the 5r comes already threaded for a brake. My plan is 215Berger hybrids if they ever become available again. If this lives up to their reputation I think it will be a sub moa shooter with no problem. I will let you know how it does in a few weeks, by then you will probably have something. The one thing I will be adding is a Jewel, the factory trigger is just not for me.

    Yeah, the factory X-Mark trigger sucks. I plan on a Jard V 14oz trigger for my 700 5R .308, and also plan on ordering all the other a available weight springs to see which one I like best. If I like it alot, might order one for my Sendero SF, even though that is an old factory trigger and I have it adjusted nicely.

    Cowboy- by shopping you can get a sendero for less . i paid $650 for 300 and $480 for 7mm. the sporter weight guns like the sps stainless i would not count on for long range accuracy.

    Well I found a Browning A Bolt for a price I couldn't pass up so I will be getting that.

    The 300 should do all I need it to for now, and in the mean time I will start saving for a 375 RUM!
