    Ive been thinking about picking up a semi custom rifle this winter.

    I'm thinking I want a 300WSM in stainless. I own 7mm, 300 win mag, 270, 7mm-08 already

    Been looking at
    Cooper excalibur @ $2200 +/-
    Nosler 48 patriot @ $1795
    Redhawk rifle (stainless fluted SA)@ $2900

    Looking at a short action for a little weight reduction. But cooper doesnt offer a 300WSM so if I went with them I'd get another 7mm as Im fond of this cal.

    Anyway of the three , who would you choose? Why?

    I like the Nosler personally as I don't care for the flat of the stock under the action of the Coopers. I am not familiar with Redhawk. Have you considered a Kimber 84L Classic Select? I know they make opne with nice wood and stainless action/barrel. Good luck to you Pard.

    Thanks

    Does anyone have any experiance with Redhawk rifles not the the company but with the rifles? Ive ordered stocks from them and from that perspective no complaints.
