    I was going to use it for a 300-WSM project, however, I decided to use a Nesika and Kriger for my project. I was going to keep all the equipment and still build the 300-WSM project. However, I am only going to be able to afford one rifle, so I need to sell it.

    It's brand new equipment and will be ready soon.

    This equipment would make an awesome long range varmint rig when using high BC bullets in the 150 to 155grn range.

    Apparently that's what it was meant to be, as the barrel is a 1-15" twist......

    The 1-15 twist is a good twist rate for shooting the 150 to 155grn High BC bullets. Berger informed me their 150grn Match, 150grn Match BT and their 155grn VLD would work well in a 1-15 twist. Sierra and Hornady also informed me their 150 to 155grn bullets would shoot very well out of a 1-15 twist. You can even look at Bergers site, and they show either a 1-14 or 1-15 twist for these types of bullets and that's exactly what I was told over the phone.

    Anyhow, this would make an awesome long range varmint set up by using the 300-WSM case with 150grn to 155grn high BC bullets. The 300-WSM will push the 150 to 155grn bullets out of a 30", 1-15 twist barrel at around 3400 to 3450fps. All you need to do is order a stock and trigger, and you will be ready to go without the long wait of waiting on an action and barrel. I ordered the equipment in late Jan. 2007, so I've been informed it will be ready for shipment in early May 2007.

    A faster twist will shoot those bullets every bit as well, plus give the option of stabilizing heavier ones......

    I was going to use it, however, I can only afford one rifle project right now. I am going to use the Nesika Action and Krieger barrel for my 6mm project. Anyhow, I wish I could keep it, but I need the money to able to afford the Nightforce 8x32x56mm NXS for my project.
