I have a .300 WM on a remy action. It is a complete custom McMillan A5 adjustable lop and cheek weld, Kreiger #10 MTU 28", Timney Trigger. Aftermarket Bolt knob. It is a heavy beast I built for prone shooting ELR at steel. This thing is a hammer easy 1/4 rifle with hand loads and it's my first bolt gun. In a couple years I want to go on a bear hunt but don't have a good rifle for it. I can bring the WM but I don't want to lug around a 16 pound rifle. I want to have a lighter 300 WM probably build it off Savage parts for bear hunting and build a 338 for smacking steel ELR. I have narrowed it down to 338 Edge or 338 Norma Mag. I want to have a repeater fed from a DMB with a capacity of 5 rounds. Best case I sell the remy and hope I can get $2k for it. Use my tax return to build a 338 Norma Mag based on a stiller tac 338 and a "cheap" 300 WM. If that doesn't work out I'd like to use my remy as a doner and chamber it in edge. Who would be a good smith who wont have a 6 month wait after I already waited 4 months on the Kreiger barrel. Also is there a DBM I can use with a COAL of 3.9 inch to really get the edge moving. I would also like to have the barrel salt bath nitrated. I could also build the Edge off a savage action and stick it in a Mcree chassis but I don't know if I can get a magazine in the mcree that will allow a 3.9 COAL.
