Re: Building new Hunting Rifle

Sounds like good progress. I am personally going with a Huskemaw scope on my 300 RUM. The reason i picked the RUM is the ability to load it both hot for long range big critters and load it down if my 13 yr old wants to shoot a deer with it. Did u decide on which brake u are going to run on it. I think i am going to have the muscle brake 4 port put on mine by a gunsmith here locally since i can take "gun stuff" into my work and i dont have access to another lathe. Good luck cant see it finished.

Where u located at in Alaska? I hunted almost 20 yrs ago out of eagle river ona moose and bear hunt.

Re: Building new Hunting Rifle

Live up in Fairbanks, been here about 32 years. It's just really nice here and not very many people. To congested down in the lower 48. I'm going with a Holland brake, havent decided on the glass yet.Going to the SHOT SHOW in Vegas in January, so I'll checkout all glass products down there.Gotta go with the father inlaw or I wouldn't be going down there. He's the gunsmith,can't wait for other parts to start show up and start putting it all together.

Re: Building new Hunting Rifle

I wouldn't go any longer than 26" on the barrel. If you go 28, after the muzz brake you will be over 30, that won't even fit in your igloo.. I went 24" with a brake on my 300 and am able to get the 210's to 2900.

Re: Building new Hunting Rifle

. so should be around 26 to 27.
