My first 300 wm build

This was my first build. A friend of mine built a 300 wm. After seeing it shoot I thought I'd like to one. So I did. After buying one part here and another here, plus getting to know the UPS & FedEx guys on a first name bases, I got all my parts. Now it's time to find a smith that can put it all together. I found one in Diamond Missouri. Most of the local gun shops were using him so I thought, I'd try him. I'm glad I did, once I got my gun back and shot it. I was very happy. Once I got the gun zeroed my next five shots at 100yrds were .5 moa's. Really good for 180gr sp fed's that were close to 10yrs old.

Since I spent all my money on parts and having the smith true everything up from between the brake to the bolt, I raddled caned the finish. Personally I think it turned out great.

Parts used:

Remington 700 LA
Remington 26" 700 police bull barrel
Mccree LA folding stock
5 port brake from Ross (from this site)
Vortex viper 6.5-20x50 milldot
Butter creek flip ups
Vortex paired rings
Nightforce 20 moa base
Vortex bubble level
Caldwell pivot 9-13 bipod
Mccree cheek rest bag

I can't wait to see how it shoots with some smk's or Amax's.

Thanks. My first shot out of it I didn't even notice the recoil. The second shot I payed attention to and that brake I got from Ross at brakesandmore tamed the 300wm down what my AR is like.
