New Factory Rifle Advice
I have purchased my very 1st brand new in the box factory 300WM. I don't intend on putting a round thru it until I've taken every step that I can to make it as accurate as possible. I don't expect miracles but do want to be very accurate all the way to 1000+.
That being said, I don't have a big budget, hence the factory rifle. I know there are going to be several 'you should have just saved your money and done a custom build' but unfortunately that was not feasible right now. This is my starting point, modifications and improvements will come in the future in bits and pieces, but this is a good base to start with.
So.. any recommendations and direction would be appreciated.
Here's what it's got..
26' floated, fluted, button crown 1:10, #2 or #3 contour medium heavy barrel
laminate stock, monte carlo cheek, 13.25 lop, unbedded
fluted, three lug, 60 degree bolt
synthetic dbm, not pillared
I'm not mentioning the brand because I'd like impartial advice aimed at pretty much any new good quality factory rifle.
I'll be picking it up when I get home from Afghanistan, so there's time to get done whatever needs to be done.
I appreciate the help.
