Re: New to long range

Thanks gain Bob. I will look into the Jewel triggers. If anyone knows of a reputable gunsmith that they would recommend for accuracy and stock package I would appreciate the info. Thanks

    MCR was the one I was thinking of.

    Trebark, I bet you were typing at the same time!

    Trebark, I did read your post. Thanks for the info. I was just kinda doing what people do with a doctor 'get a second opinion' I will definitely look into MCR?

    Thanks

    You might give Hill Country Rifles in New Braunfels a look.I had forgotten about them, but I have friend that has a pencil barreled 300 Wby that shoots 180gr factory spire points in the .3's & know another family that has been sending them rifles for years. They have a factory ammo accuracy guarantee..... I'm sure there are great guys on this forum too, but I just don't know anyone personally that has used them yet

    Thanks catwacker. I did come across Hill Country when I was searching the Internet. I too like the factory ammo accuracy guarantee. I am not into loading at this time and probably will never be. I know I may not ever get the accuracy I could get with hand loads but to be honest I'm not that accurate myself - YET. I'll keep practicing though.

    Factory ammo isn't a concern for me & a lot of other people on this forum , but it is to some. I reload quite a bit now, but if I have a factory load works, I shoot it. I'm shooting factory 140gr Amax in a 6.5 Creedmoor now, & I don't have any reason to reload it. The factory ammo shoots less than MOA out to 900yds if I do my part. Be careful or you'll get bitten by the bug, & have a whole room set aside for reloading before it's all said & done
