If your still looking for a rifle in 300wsm.
I bought a Browning Micro Hunter in 300wsm and have nothing but good things to say about it. With a 2x-7x 32 Leupold it weights in at 7lbs. I can tote that rifle around any terrain all day and the recoil is very tolerable. I'm sure the tolerable recoil has everything to do with the stock design.
Here is an inexpenive and effective deer feeder I made recently.
No batteries to go dead, no hoisting it up in the tree, plenty of capacity, very easy to fill - so far, I love it.
I have made two of these and they are easy to build.
An empty 55 gallon drum, some 2x4's, some PVC tubing and fittings, a little bit of hardware and some paint - and you are ready to go.
I designed it so you can stand on the lower rung and fill it - the top is about 6.5 feet above the ground.
It holds about 375...
