On the price he is selling to me at his cost because I help him out a lot and never charge him anything, so every now and then he shoots me a pretty good deal. Any suggestions on a load ie. powder I pretty much know I'm trying the berger 215's. thinking H1000 but not sure.
They produce them in both 308 and 300WM. I understand they are put together on the same machinery and specs as the M24's produced for the military contracts. They are not cataloged, and are made in limited numbers.I put a Jewel and a McMillan A5 stock on the rifles I use for competition. I had good luck being able to tune the stock triggers to a crisp 2.5 pounds that I like on my Milspec used for hunting. The were pre Mark X triggers though. Since mine are 308's I'm not familiar with 300WM load data. I will say that the longer throats on my 308's handle the heavy Bergers well. Since they are Mil Spec, I would think the 300 would shoot a load comparable to the Federal SMK 300WM match ammo very well. My 308's shoot factory Federal Match ammo into .5MOA. Better with hand loads. I think you will really like this rifle. I have been looking for one in 300WM.
