I finally got my 300ss up and running. I wanted to rebuild my old Ruger M77 (sentimental value). It was the first rifle I ever bought chambered in 7mm mag, and I killed 2 elk with it many many years ago. The Ruger internal box is tiny, like 3.4” which really limits what cartridges I could run. The 300ss was perfect! My smith squared the entire action and bedded the original boat paddle stock, which I really wanted to keep. It has a Bartlein barrel, 26” 10tw 3b contour. Bare rifle weighs sub 7lbs. Launches Berger 215’s at 2870fps. During testing I got close to 3000fps but best accuracy was sub 2900fps. As you can see it’s a TACK DRIVER! 1 hole groups at 100 yards.
