It started life as a factory .308 but was reamed to a 300WSM. You can purchase in both calibers. I just wanted something bigger to reach out further for ground hogs with a flatter trajectory. The .308 required to many clicks to get to 1000 to 1100yrds.
Very nice rifle. I have the DBM model. It works well and I am very happy with it over all. I high suggest one. If you want a less expensive the 12FV is deffinately a good trade off. I have shot both.
