new to forum with lots of questions
I have been reading posts on this forum for several weeks now and decided that this would be the best place to get some questions answered. First off, I have hunted big game for 12 years now and I have decided its time to start extending my shooting abilities. I am looking for a new rifle that will be capable of taking elk out to 600 yards with lots of practice. I think I have it narrowed down to either a Win. Coyote light stainless in 300WSM or a barreled action from Montana rifleman in 300WSM with a stock that I haven't decided on yet. I just wondered what you guys thought of either of these rifles or any experiences with them. The rifle will most likely have a Leopold VXIII 4.5-14 scope on it.
Another question is how difficult is it to fit a barreled action to a stock that has been made for the action for someone with no gunsmithing experience. I am hoping to learn how to bed an action shortly.
Finally, I am hoping to begin reloading here in the next month or so. I do want to keep costs low initially and I was thinking of purchasing the Lee anniversary kit with Lee full length sizing dies. I have a lot of reading to do first as far a reloading and making sure I donít blow anything up, but I would appreciate any opinions on a good first timerís kit.
Thanks in advance for any help or thoughts you have for me
