300 wsm

Just finished this one. Started with a 308 ended up 300WSM. Installed PTG one piece mag bolt. Blue printed action including opening up scope mounts to #8 screw and pinning rail.Install wyatt extended box and follower for the WSM. Barrel is a Krieger rem. varmint contour finished at 26 inches. McMilan stocks with adj. cheek. The 308 barrel was much larger so I had to bed the stock out to the end. Barrel is floated. Shot it this morning with 2 different loads. The very first shot was a little high and left. The next 3 were 185 Bergers with H4350. The next 3 were 180 accubonds with H 4831sc. All six were almost touching. Looks like it wants to shoot.

Re: 300 wsm

Nice! Don't be afraid to reach out a ways. I shot a 3.75" 545 yard group last Saturday out of my Savage 12VBSS from the prone. I'll try and post a pic of the steel with me holding the tape. I'm shooting 185 Berger VLD's in front of H4831SC. Quite an awesome round. Making the way out to 1,000! Once again, good shooting!!

Re: 300 wsm

I am sure the owner will. Allready boxed up to be shipped. I was just test firing it and checking for feeding problems. I am sure it will do better with some proper load development. Only seven rounds down the tube. Thanks for looking. Your target is very nice also. Dan

Re: 300 wsm

Nice rifle. The colors, although common, seem unique/unusual.

The cheekpiece is interesting. Did you cut the top/front corner off? Any particular reason?

When I got the rifle it was like that. It allows you to remove the bolt with out lowering the cheek piece. Dan

Re: 300 wsm

Another question for you on your test loads. It is interesting that you test fired with H4350 and H4831. I would think the go-to powders for the WSM cartridges would be H1000 or Retumbo. What made you go with H4350 and H4831?

A friend shoots 1000 yd matches with a 300wsm and they were his pet loads. Wins quiet a lot in heavy gun. Dan
