What is the best big 30 cal, and why?

I have a customer that is fixsated on building a fast 30 cal, he is looking at the Lazzeroni. What are your thoughts on this or other wildcats? What kind of balistics do you get out of your hot rod?

If he just wants a flamethrower, get a 30 Wolf.

If he want something a little more practical, a 300 RUM or 300 Tomahawk.

I don't think you can top the 30 Wolf then. Unless you did a 30-408.

Check with Bruce Baer on the 300 Bear. I believe it is on a 416 case.

+1 on the 300 Wolf - I have shot more than one, and its hard to top a 1/4 MOA CANNON!

Why? 210 VLD's at 3300 fps. 180 gr. 3550 fps. 10 firings out of 1 piece of brass without having to anneal necks. Dies that load ammo so straight, my runout needle hardly moves.

Most big 30's that shoot inside 1/4 MOA are on huge benchrest style stocks and lack some level of portability.

The 300 Wolf can be built as light as 14 lbs, or as heavy as 22 lbs. and they all shoot lights out.

The brakes are nothing short of a miracle.

You have to shoot a cannon off a bipod without one to understand the reality of the above comment.

They have been built on more actions than any other, and the machine work is perfect. Well sorted, proven, and portable 2000 yard Killer off a bipod, no less.

The guy that builds them gives a half day clinic on how to load and shoot the 300 Wolf as part of the price, so you get a better shooter thrown in for free. He will even tune a load up for your Wolf while your there, if you want, and teach you how to do it.

Not many guys can make your other rifles shoot better just by building you a big 300. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif[/img]



If it were me, I'd ask for a 'Carbon Copy' of that one,
