I personally don't think any well known and respected smith could have built a better shooting rifle,JMO The rifle weighs 12.5 lbs with scope jfyi. Good luck and keep us updated on the route you go and of course we will want pics.
K thats good to know im in the ball park. Thats pretty cool that u lived so close to the smith. Be completely involved in the build would be awesome to further your knowledge from a pro like that. What contour of barrel did you choose and how deep are the flutes? I wanna be some where around 9 to 10lbs rifle only.

Get that rifle posted La sounds like a nice piece.

Re: rifle build help

If I was considering a 300WM build, I would go the exact same route that Broz has gone in this thread: My New 300 Win Build

The results he is getting using the 215 berger hybrid are fantastic. Just figured I would throw this out there for another idea!

Yeah, and his results are even better. Here is a thread from last year's big game season in which he took 19 big game animals with it: Comparing the Berger 210 VLD to the 215 Hybrid
