Re: Recommendations

Do you reload? the reason I ask is I don't think that the 300 WSM has any factory offerings with 200+ grain bullet. I would look for something like a 338 RUM, Than you could at least use some big 250 grain Partitions or A-frames. You could also use these loads on deer and won't lose any meat because the tough hunting bullets shouldn't fragment. If your worried about recoil get a muzzle break.

Re: Recommendations

I've always enjoyed my model 70's (2). They've been sub moa out of box. Adjustable triggers, nice feel, 100% reliable.

I shoot one of them long range. I bought a Boyds thumbhole stock ($80), bedded the action, and worked up a load. My load will shoot .3 at 100 (3 shots). I shoot this rifle to 1K. Very happy with it!

I don't believe the Winchester name will die.

If I was going to shoot grizz with a 300, I'd use big x bullets.
