    I have done alot of searching around on the internet and have not had a whole lot of success, I am curious as to where i can get my hands on one in 300 WSM. Is it a common thing to find them on the shelves or is that something i would have to order through a gun shop? I would personally go look around if could but will be in afghanistan for a couple more months so i appreciate the input.

    Thanks for the info, how much do they run? I'll take a 300 WM, that is actually what i originally wanted but thought i might try out the WSM.

    Both are 1695.00 list here,the only disadvantage is that the detachable mag.sets your maximum O.A.L. but you can single load it too.With the groups I am getting with 165gr handloads thats no problem,I want to hit a coyote at 800yds+ thats my goal this year.:)

    For that price i can buy a T3 lite, or a 700 and build one that will probably shoot half the groups. I looked at Remington's custom shop, i looked at their AWR II and really like the loks of it but dont even want to know the cost. I like how they dont advertise it.

    Where I live in Canada to get a rilfe with a heavy barrel threaded for a brake,adjustabe cheek piece,and a rail,in a 300WM this was my best deal.To get a custom rifle from U.S.A. was a lot more money and red tape, thats just the way it is. I cant even get a scope level shipped from U.S.A. without a 250.00 permit. I guess I dont need one.:):) Have a Great Day.

    Oh i didn't notice you were from canada, my mom actually lives in BC and I know things are quite a bit more expensive up there, not to mention a lot more firearm laws.
