Love my a bolt, but if your buying an older 300 wsm you may want to pick up a good pachmayer pad. On my 325(which is about a year old) the one thats on there is great, the one on my 300 wsm(about 2 years old) was horrible, got a pachmayer, problem solved.
Here is the scenario... you sit in your 2 piece climbing stand and your foot inadvertently bumps the lower section while there is no weight on it - and it slides down the tree, out of reach!
OK, you are safe - you have a string tied from the upper section that you are sitting on and the foot portion that slid 4-5 feet down the tree. All you have to do it pull the other section up, reposition it and you are back in business, correct?
Have you ever tested this theory?
