Re: Barrel Length 300 Ultra

Hey guys thanks for the replies. I am realy getting pumped over this project....can't stop thinking about it !!!

wyowhisper,

I have pretty much decided on the 32" barrel as I don't plan on hiking to far with the rig. I do have a Styer SBS in 300 win that I use for elk out west and have used it on one deer in PA. Love that gun...sweet shooter right out of the box...love the looks I get when someone see it for the first time as it has the "ugly" black stock that I could use as a carry gun if I'm hiking to far for the "big gun". Also no I'm not from GGVG. Almost forgot I'll be down to the show on monday, have to meet with my outfitter and put the down payment on our yearly elk trip. I'll swing by and say hi.

Boyd,

Sweet looking rig !! How do you like the tripod rest ? Is it stable enough for shots out to 1K ? I was looking at getting one of them if they are good. I see your from Lock Haven, do you do any hunting around Rauchtown? The reason I asked is I ran into some guys up off of rt880 longranging this past deer season.

Darryl

I'll drop you a line via email

Good shooting
Bill
