Hi All; new to forum and interested in a long range rig; mainly for some target fun but extending to field when loads etc sorted.
I am from Western Australian and live in the Gascoyne Region which is a semi desert area when properties are measured in up to a million acres. Needless to say most of our shooting is done in close proximity to vehicle. Primary game to be considered for long range busting is from goats through donkeys to camels; all vermin.
The rigs that are described on the site are fascinating but I expect our options down under may be limited. I am also not wanting to invest a vast sum on a rig at this stage; wishing to grow with the pursuit over time. With this in mind I am looking for suggestions; I have looked at some info on the 300 WSM
and 300 RUM. Optimal rounds seem to be limited to 180 grainers at the top end, though with the game in mind this is no hindrance. Can these rounds be accommodated in a 308 length action? I would consider
buying a Ruger KM77VR and having rechambered (if this is possible).
Glad for any advice.
