    Well just got the new 300WSM last Thrursday from the gunmsith. Win 70 action,McMillian stock, Kreiger CM #3 5r 1/11.25 twist finished 26" long should be a nice deer/elk rifle. I plan on shooting some 165gr Accubond and 168gr TSX then move up to 180gr bullets see how it does.

    I used a Broughton 5c 1/12 twist 24" long barrel on my other 300WSM be interesting to see how the Kreiger does.

    Is anyone else shooting one of those new Kreiger 5r barrels?

    Congrats!! Why the 11 1/4 twist vs a 10 twist? Sounds like a bitchen rifle!
    I cant wait to get enough $ scraped togather to build one of my Model-70's. Ive been planning on re-doing my Model-70, 300wby. But I own a 270wsm, and like it so much that I want a 300wsm instead of the 300wby. I love those short fat little beltless cartriges. Maybe I need both:D.
    Keep us informed on the performance. I cant wait to see some groups and critters.
