I am not sure if I want to move this. I am posting to see if there is some interest. I am thinking about stepping down to a much smaller caliber. This is a range toy mostly and has only been taken on 1 hunt, I practically blew up a hog at 50 yds...lol. I dont "NEED" a magnum for Texas deer.

Specs:
-gen 1 5R Tactical 300WM factory barrel/action
-1-10 twist 24" sendero contour threaded 5/8-24
-factory HS precision stock bedded by me and sent back to HS for a granite color/texture repaint
-Timney 510 trigger
-PTG obendorf 3.850"ish extended canue style bottom metal, stock mag box, spring, and follower
-precision armament break
-badger mini bolt handle attached by me. I cut off old handle, drilled a hole in handle stub, inserted 316SS 5/16-24 stud turned down to fit inside hole and tig'd it in place.
-RR prefix w/ re-timed and tig'd bolt handle, cycles tremendously
-leupold steel 20 moa pic base
-hawkins low 34mm rings
-Bushnell DMR-II w/ G3 reticle non-illuminated
-102 gunwerks brass 76 once fired 26 new
-redding type s FL bushing die w/ 3 bushings
-forster micro adjustable seating die
-230ish 215 berger hybrids - current load of 76.4 gr of H1000 shoots real 👌 nice, taken to 1000 a lot with relative ease. Scope has enough adjustment for 1 mile.

I would like to sell/trade everything as a package. I will not split up unless everything is spoken for. I do not have a price in mind, just open to offers for now.

Based on a sample of one only...I bought a heavy barrel stainless 5R 700 Remington .300 Win. Magnum new several years ago. It's been fired a great deal using many different bullets, mostly those in the 150 - 180 grain range, but only a couple of powders, H4350 and H4831. With the exception of a NightForce 3x-10x SHV, my rifle is straight-out-of-the-box, 5 lb. trigger and all. It remains very accurate, though I'm not a long range shooter. 500 yards is very long range for me and that's as far as I've shot my rifle.

I'm not sure what these heavy rifles are really good for, but they're not uncomfortable to shoot as the 10.5 lb. weight serves to minimize recoil at least a little. Anyway, a good rifle that I'll continue shooting.

Update.

-91 once fired 10 twice fired.
-if local to DFW area I still have almost 4 lbs of H1000 and 500 215M primers if my next build doesn't use that combo left

Took it out yesterday on a windy day. Here is a pic of the 1000yd 3moa steel target. I am no marksman and I definitely wouldn't take a shot at game in those conditions but, it still held a 24" or so group on a gusty day. Wind sock on the left of the 3rd picture is basically being held at attention. TripleC range bay 6 I believe...awesome place!

Trade considerations:
Bighorn origin short action
Defiance Tenacity
Lightweight stocks
Barrels
Other parts to assemble a cool build.
