Got em. Phone pics are always a little blurry but I understand you can't beat the convenience.
I'm used to looking at tactical type rifles so the camo color hunting profile stock takes some adjustment, but on paper it looks like a winner, especially for a first real rifle for me to try elk hunting with. With the .300WM I only lose theoretical range compared to a .300RUM or .338RUM. I don't even know how good a shooter I am at longer range.
So, we're talking about a mostly stock 110 Savage long action and everything else is aftermarket, it shoots 1/2 MOA if I do, and it's good for elk hunting in Montana out to 500-600 yds.
Is that a 20MOA rail? Do Picatinny rails even work that way?
For my part I would want/need to add a muzzle brake
, rings, scope, bipod, sling, probably a cheekpiece. So, total is actually going to be around $1800 for the build, I'd say.
That's my decision problem. That's the lower end of the spectrum from $1600-$2400 which I consider the sweet spot with long range rifles. Sniper Central will build a semi-custom .338RUM for under $2400 but it takes 6 months, well into or past elk season this year. This one is pretty loaded, but I was thinking 700 in RUM so I need to process it a little and get some 3rd party advice.
It's not like there's a bad decision to be made here. It's just figuring out what I want, need, and best bang for the buck.
I'm gonna ponder a few...
