I am thinking of doing the same, I have a savage long action, and was told it can be done, a repeater costs a lot more to build, but a single shot would be a lot easier and cheaper, i may go the single shot route...
I was looking at ballistics for the 300 grn smk, and see that it might be near 100 moa for a 2000 yard hit from a 100 yd zero, and was wondering how people are doing it, special bases? i know the 20 moa are easy to find for a savage, but that is a lot of elevation, how would one go about doing this?
I have had numerous people tell me that the 7mm wsm
is the way to go, but i will hunt something big sooner or later with it
