I am in the process of getting started on building a custom long range rifle. I can't decide on a caliber it is either 300 RUM, 300 win mag, 300 Weatherby mag, 300 wsm
, 300 RSAUM.
I want the rifle to be able to effectively kill an elk out to 800 Yards (Probally will never try it though). I will be hunting deer, elk, pronghorn, and etc. I have a 300 RSAUM in model 7 that the recoil was brutal until i put a break on it. (Gun is light). I am leaning towards the 300 RUM.
Remington or Savage Action
not sure on the barrel ( Sendero Contour)
McMillian A3 Stock
