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.

Go to your club and get a bunch of guys together - and put a target out there at 250 meters. Break out the deer rifles and see who can shoot a decent group, even off of the bench, at this distance. I think you will be shocked at how few can do it.
So - with that in mind, I recently set out to try to develop a semi-custom rifle that I could afford and that would shoot - repeatedly - at MOA.
I started with a platform that I love...
