Cowboy I have the thompson center venture .300 win mag fits the criteria of what you are looking for. Got mine for $600.00 new and it shoots 1/4" moa at 200. In the hands of a better shooter it would do better I'm sure of it.

my brother just got one of the TC stainless in 300 win; he hasn't even put a top end on it yet.
I've got the a-bolt ss lh boss in 300 win and it's a 1/2 moa rifle, even with 1500 rounds bown the pipe. Killed my deer at 500 + yards in a cross wind with the deer trotting this last year. Chalk another one up to the browning; I've got to leave the thing at home so the other rifles get kills.

I have been reading alot of praise on the Winchester 70 Extreme Weather and Browning Long Range about their out of the box, long range accurracy. I havn't seen either in 300WM though and the shops I asked laughed when I asked about ordering. There are 30-06's and 300WSM though....

My guess is that either of those 2 will show up on Gunbroker fastest. Most higher volume dealers sell there. Keep looking, both are good choices. The Browning is less customizable but may be a better shooter. When you get a good shooter the quality has already been established at Browning and I'd guess the higher end Winchester's are too. Customization is sometimes overkill.
