300 Whisper questions

I'm thinking I'd like to try a bolt action rife in this chambering. Maybe a short barreled light weight threaded for a suppressor. I believe I'd need an 8 twist barrel and the suppressor I have in mind is a bit heavy so a stout fluted barrel. 220 ot 240 SMKs would be the projectile, sub and supersonic capable.

Custom reticle from Premier with range finder lines and dot holdovers.

Any ideas or suggestions...

Chris, can you do these??

Dave I'll bring mine up to SMTC and let you shoot it the next I come up if you want. I'm only shooting the 180 SMK in it It on a short action. Did you get the targets?

Jim

I didn't know you had a Whisper!!!

Okay... Yes I got the targets, thanks.

Did you see the post to your name in this forum? It has the link to your pictures.

I have a few suppressors coming as soon as I get cleared by state and the Feds. I transferred my older equipment to another fella and am opting for smaller units. I'll use one on my 308 Win and perhaps the 300 WSM and the new Whisper if I get it, olso have one for a 22RF and will use it on a 10/22 and a Ruger pistol.

Chris

Sure [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] it's what I live for!

Nothing fancy, Rem 700 SA, whatever hunter or tactical type McMillan stock you have around (one of those "leftover" SC's maybe (no Purple or Pink color and nothing else in a girly color). Short barrel (18 to 20 inch area, prefer 18), fast twist (I was thinking 1 in 8 but want to hear what you have to say too). Fluted but stout as the suppressor is heavy (29 oz).

Badger Bases, 8 x 40 screws, matte grey finish on the steel.

What did I miss?

Whats the cost?

Is it done yet???

Re: 300 Whisper questions

Dave--i was thinking of threading a 10/22 MKII for my 223 can also--how does that work--seems it would work good (maybe better since mine is built for the 223)

also how loud is the action moise on both as i was going to thread a bolt 22 also to avoid that.
