FINAL RESULT! I dropped the rifle off on thur and got a call fri at 4, they had fixed my rifle!! I went in and talked with them, it turns out it wasn't nearly as bad as they thought. They polished it up for about an hour and it was good to go. They were slammed with work but went above and beyond so that I could have the rifle to go hunting for opening day, they said " We never want to keep you out of the woods if we can help it." Tested the rifle and it runs like new! Thanks to them I got to go out opening day for mule deer. J. Beagle Rifles was the shop I went and I would HIGHLY recommend them to anyone as they truly care about their customers and do fantastic work! Now if I can just close the deal on a buck, I would certainly bring them some steaks as a thank you. :IBCOOL:

Guns and Ammo / Re: Another new factory 30cal. The 300 PRC...

I want it to do well, and I tend to think it will, despite all the pushback it’s already getting. I don’t think it does anything better than either the 300 Win or 30 Nosler if those are built in custom/semi custom guns, but in factory rifles the PRC will be a force to be reckoned with.

The SAAMI specs on the Win Mag and Nosler are holding them back with 3.340” OAL and 10” twist barrels. Most “gun guys” will load then long, have the throat lengthened or find a gun with a faster twist. But if you’re a factory ammo guy, you’re stuck with the short OAL and limited performance for the most part. The more modernized SAAMI specs on the 300 PRC let a factory ammo shooter get the same performance advantages that a hand loader gets with the Win Mag and Nosler.

It’s hard to ignore the reality that right now Hornady is taking wildcats designed by knowledgeable shooters (George Gardner’s 6.5 Gap and Dave Tooley’s 30 Booboo) and tweaking them so that the mass market can benefit from them. The specs on the 300 PRC are so close to the Booboo that of Dave Tooley wasn’t involved with the development, he’d probably be suing Hornady right now! :chuckle:

Well Glock, I'm going to give it a try.  I've got access permits for 10/31 and 11/1.  In the meantime I'll be scouting the area with my permit holder during permit week, probably 10/24 and 10/25.  I've never researched the general season success rates for the windfarm, I'm sure they're out there somewhere but I haven't had the time to look.
