    Ok I have one too many 300wsm's, 3 all built up by Hill Co Rifles, MG arms, McWhorter, love the round, love the guns, BUT I have a NIB Sako 85 Stainless in the syn stock. What caliber could that action work for in a rebarrel project? thought about the 325 wsm, maybe 200, 225gr berger, but lets think out of the WSM family....what ya thinking??

    looks like McWhorter builds the 338wsm and could make me some dandies with the berger VLD

    Um I dont know who would load that for you. There is the 338RCM for thouse who dont reload. You realy shold start at 60+ dollers a box of ammo its a no brainer.

    That would be a nice way to go 338 RCM, I will check into it.
