300RUM 4 yr Project

Here is my 300RUM project. Started out as my factory BDL elk gun. Now has a Lex Weberneck Slim Break, tactical bolt job, Badger ord knob, thumbhole stock that I finished, picatinny rail, Warne rings and a Burris 3.5x10x50 Ballistic plex reticle. I've been happy loading 180gr Nosler on top of IMR 4878. Not as nice some others you guys have posted, but a little different than the usual.

THX,
MC2

That's a good lookin' rig. Is that a factory action, barrel and trigger? How does it shoot?

I have been reading this forum for months now and never had a desire to register until I saw your rifle. It is a thing of beauty and four years well spent.

I like the looks of that a lot. Kind of like a 10/22 out of control. Where did you get the stock?

Yes, Sir, Factory action, barrel, and trigger. With my reloads I can make all 3 holes touch at 100 yds at 86.6 gn.
