Well originally I was wanting to go .338 edge (still do someday, just need more $$). Then I decided the 300 RUM was the way to go. Now after much thought I decided there really wasn't enough gain from my wby to the RUM to start over. I have a Rem 700 classic in 300 wby. Already have the dies and brass. Here's my thoughts- - 27" or 28" in barrel. Not sure which manufacturer? Any thoughts? Only has a 24 now - laminate thumbhole stock, bedded - Wyatt's extended box mag - try the Berger 215s. Using 210s currently (any load recommendations? What velocity could I expect?) - Timney trigger - 20moa base (any recommendations?) - Vortex Viper 6.5-24 ffp, or Huskemaw 5-20, Nightforce 3.5-15 (would go 5.5-22 but I really want don't want to break the bank, but still have great components.) - ballistic turret This is my go to rifle. I'll use it for hiking plus some long range set ups. Want to keep the weight down and not really long to avoid hanging up. Thanks guys!
