He's got some bad arse wildcats and names to go with it.I saw a post by Pro ‘swamplord’ about a cartridge he designed. It is supposed to have the performance of a 300 Rum in a case shorter then the 338 Rum. On a magnum bolt face. Not lapua.
If it performs as advertised it would be a solid choice for the 245 and 250.
Man do I agree with you here. The gunsmiths in PTG's area don't use him anymore. Too many problems.As much as you want to get everything done quickly or the same time I would wait on the dies until you have fired brass. PTG isn't known for hitting the dimensions all the time. I personally would have gone with Manson or JGS for the reamer as they tend to cut better and are generally spot on for dimensions. If your reamer is off your dies could be worthless.
Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1
Nightforce is such a solid combo of reticle, available elevation, glass that is good enough to shoot at the longest range you can dial. Nightforce has bullet proof construction that can handle the incidental horse rolling or some other rodeo action. -- bigngreen
The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
