Your ideal 2700$ 300 win mag build.... Go

My Brother and I have decided to do long range hunting 300 win mag builds. We are building our rifles independently so no information of specs will be shared, and we will see what we end up with. I was looking for some personal opinions from you folks on what you would do in my situation.

Specs are:
-2700$ to spend on a complete rifle, EVERYTHING EXCEPT A SCOPE. This includes rings and bases etc...
-Can be custom action or trued factory doesn't matter.
-The barrel twist must be that so it can effectively shoot 200 grain rocks

Thanks for the info.

Be prepared to be overwhelmed with recommendations.

I'll keep mine simple for starters ... checkout >>> Custom Remington Rifles | Red Hawk Rifles

Good luck!

Shilen barreled action = $1500 (action made by Stiller but takes Savage barrels and bolt heads) + trigger (any Remington style trigger) + stock + bases.

I like the actions but what about shilen barrels? I have heard they are pretty mediocre.

Where did you hear that ? All of mine are 1/2MOA or better. Fit perfect, clean easily. I have not had a Lilja, nor a Krieger yet, where else would you go ? Bear in mind my barrels were $350 complete. No gunsmithing needed.

HUH! There's a reason why Bergara barrels asked Ed Shilen's expertise ...

Easy...I built your rifle already, just change the cartridge from 300RUM to 300Win (although if you're going with WinMag, why not step up to the RUM?)

My 300RUM by MCR

Cost on this rig was ~$2400 without optics.
