Re: 300 WSM ??? 338 Win Mag??? also what about the 308?
If I were RH, I give you $1500 for that rig!!! Hell, it doesn't even look like it weighs 12 lbs. My own .300 WSM weighs approx. 17 lbs. Incidentally, it also happens to perform best with those 168-gr HPBTs. Shoots Lapua 167-gr Scenars sub-1/4 MOA x 5 shots at least 1/3 of the time! It also likes the 185-gr Scenars, but clearly not as much seein' as how the twist in the barrel is 1:12. I'll try a 1:11 once the current bbl is shot out. At any rate, you oughta buy that rig from the owner and just keep it for hunts where your gear would be at great risk due to the elements or theft. Several years ago, I only narrowly missed out on an opportunity to go hunting north of Vladivostok with a friend of mine who was living in Moscow at the time. And I'll never forget how he emphazised that I needed to bring a rifle that I could afford to lose!
Russia is full of thievin' bastards from top to bottom, he explained
