Re: Rem700 in 300 WSM?
Just bought a Rem 700 SPS in 300 WSM, 24" factory sporter contour. Weight is 7 3/8 lbs. Cost was $439 NIB.
Plan is to fire lap barrel, lap lugs, tune the trigger and see if chamber is centered. Restock into Brown Precision 1lb stock, High Tech 20oz stock or Bruce Baer laminated thumbhole lightened up to 2 lbs or less.
Trying for .5-.75 MOA with factory barrel. this will be strictly 7lb carry gun. If I have to rebarrel, then we go whole hog and lighten it up and come in at 6 lbs.
You can always buy rem or used 1kr br 30 cal barrel and rechamber and still be .5 MOA or less.
