    I have a 300 SAUM sendero and thinking about rechambering it to a 300 WSM with a 30" shilen. Any thoughts/comments on doing this would be appreiciated. [​IMG]

    (Im not big into hand loading so the consideration is based on factory ammo available)

    I have a Rem 700 action that was originally made for the 300RSAUM and had it converted into 300WSM tactical I have posted previously.
    The only thing you need to keep in mind is that the mag box has to be lengthened a bit to accomodate some bullets depnding on how the gunsmith does the chambering. Othe than that you should have no problem!

    you should achieve very nice velocities with the 30" barrel although you may not need a barrel that long depending on what you need the rifle for...
