Now onto the chassis, The Whiskey 3 is pretty nice, But Also Pretty Pricey, The Manners Mini Chassis as well. Would the manners be considerably lighter?
If you are shooting and hunting @ ranges extending beyond 1,000 yards, look into the 7mm STW. It's case is bigger than the .300 WinMag, and you can propel 180gr Bergers to over 3,000 fps. And the trajectory is insanely flat. It's better on barrel life than the 7mm RUM is.
