Cheap isnt a requirement. I was just weighing my options. Im willing to pay a good smith just maybe save some money not going with an after market action

Decided to re barrel the 700 in 338 Edge and run a seekins DBM. I have a savage action and stock on the way that will eventually be my hunting .300 WM.

Now I have to come up with a dummy cartridge and decide how I want it throated. I'm thinking of using Berger 300 Gr Tactical.

Nice. I am very excited. Ill be packing up my rifle this week to send it to the smith. Still looking at 4-6 months before I have loaded ammoe and time to use it. Berger bullets are tough to find these days.
