here's my 300wsm that started life out as a SPS. I had originaly bought it as a project I was planning where I wanted to build a bolt action 450 marlin. Before I ordered my 458 brl. I decided to see how accurate the gun was. Unfortunately the 450 project was shelved as soon as the barrel was broke in due to the fact the rifle must have been one of the rare factory jems that shoot like a barn on fire. after picking my jaw off the ground, I pillar beded the action and threw some glass at the recoil lug and the first inch of the barrel shank. I decided to powder coat the rifle in OD green and am pleased by the durability of the finish. I installed a tactical bolt knob, and re-tapped my base holes to 8-40 and installed a modified set of leupold dual dovetail bases with lapped rings. I put a bushnell 3200 3-9x40 with balistic reticle and bolted on my favorite harris sitting pivot bipod and shooting sling. I've shot three mulies, one whitetail and one blackbear and over a dozen coyotes with it since then and have changed my load to the 168gr barnes tipped tripple shocks and have been tickled pink by the long range accuracy of the rig.
