Sounds real nice. Only thing I would do different is I would go with seekins rings.[Just personal preference]
One other thought is I have 2 Defiance actioned rifles and I much prefer my defiance with the 3 position safety in my opinion worth the extra money.

I would try and make sure you have enough magazine length to load heavy bullets far enough out in the case. In my dads 300 win mag I have to stuff the big bullets deep to fit mag length. I wish I had a longer magazine to seat them farther out so I could take advantage of more case capacity.

I am becoming a believer in Seekins rings too.

Sounds pretty sweet, one question though, why 300 WM when you could go with a 300 PRC?
I've had both and believe me the advantages of the PRC are not just hype
