300 Win Mag

This is my latest build, I bought most of the parts here on LRH off of members who might recognize them. This is my first time having a 30 built as I'm a 7mm fan. The first loads I tried were way too hot and had to drop down

Trued 700 SS action
28.5" McGowan Barrel Sendero contour w/ muzzle brake chambered in 300 Win Mag*
Extra heavy recoil lug
A3 Edge McMillan Stock*
Jewell Trigger
steel 20 MOA rail*
5.5x22x50 Nightforce scope*
* parts picked up here on LRH
Norma Brass*, load is 76gr Retumbo w/ 210 Berger VLD Hunting*

1st pic is the rifle and the second is my first 3 shot group a bit breezy here today

    another windy day but I think I've found the load, at least until I check it over an Oehler. 2nd three shot group fired from this rifle for a total of 10 rounds fired, wish all my rifles were this easy 125 yds looks to be in the low .3's 210 Berger 75.5gr Retumbo
