I'm having a 300 WSM
being built by a fellow in Colorado that will be done this summer. The last rifle I had built was a .280 back in 1990. At this stage of my life about 95% of the big game hunting I do is for elk, and while I never crippled any elk with this the .280 I have passed up at least 3 or 4 through the years because of longer distances than I felt confortable shooting.
The ranch I guide Fly fisherman on in the summer [ In New Mexico) has a very nice range out to 500 yards and I'm looking forward to shooting and working up loads for this new rifle. I am hopeful I'll be ready to hunt with it in the fall of 2012.
