Im not exp with hand loads what so ever, Im pretty new to the LR game. Always bought off the shelf rifle/ammo. I know what im looking for and want. But at the same time im not going to pay the 4k for the perfect rifle even though I would LOVE to. So a good starting off rifle would be fantastic. Carried a M14 in Afghanistan. but want to stick with bolt action. If anyone needs anymore info please let me know, post pics if you can. Im really into the "tactical look"
Calibers, 300 win mag, 338, 7mm, something along those lines. prefer 300 winmag.
I have a pretty sweet action bedded to a McMillan HTG stock without a barrel. That said, I have a brand new 30 cal blank in transit as we speak. Its a Hart, Sendero contour, 10 twist stainless steel fluted for 26". It could be chambered and fitted for the 300WSM, 300RSAUM or the 300RUM. You could have it chambered and fit or I could.
I'd let it go for $2,300 fully fit and shooter ready. It truly has been a gem with the barrels I have had on it. OR $1,950 as it is with the blank.
Action/stock can be seen here: Customized Remington 700/Nightforce 20MOA base with McMillan HTG stock
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
