3.235 is awesome
it feeds better than the 2.99 also. At least in my setup. It feels more like a center feed the way it pushes forward and up. The 2.99 kind of "jumps" up.

Big fan of the 300WSM. Smart choice. Iíve played around with many bullet / powder combos.  H4831SC has been the best performer for stability and repeatability. Iím currently running the 210 VLD at 2850.  The 180 class bullets are also an excellent choice.  Congratulations on the build. Looking forward to see it coming together and your range/field results.

Thanks, hopefully it'll shoot as good as it's going to look.

What barrel length are you running? Also is there any other company that offers Brass for the 300 WSM besides Hornady and Norma?

Karl that's one nice looking rig. How's the recoil with it being so light?
that 4 port beast brake tames it right down. No issues spotting hits with proper recoil management.

I've been using Norma brass but its non existent these days. Just deprimed all my brass the other night that has nine firings on it and there was still that nice little pop to unseat the primers so they still have some life left. They get annealed every firing.  No clue how they still hold a primer though because I run my stuff pretty hot  :chuckle:


That's awesome. Hopefully the Little Ba$tard will do it's job.

I guess I'll just have to stick to the Hornady brass I have for now. I'll be annealing after each firing just to help keep them as consistent as possible.

The LB is a great brake. Itll be fine especially running the 180ish type bullets.

3.235". It takes a bit of modification to work right. Mag well needs opened up and we also opened up the ejection port to the rear but it feeds like a dream.  Loaded to the lands with a 215 berger puts COAL at 3.2"

I saw this on Wyatts website quite some time ago but have yet to talk to anyone that's actually gone with this setup.  Was kind of concerned about how well it functioned but it sounds like it's working very well for you.

Did you send your action to Wyatts, do the work yourself, or have a gunsmith perform all the machine work?

Mike at Hells Canyon Armory did all the machine work.

Looks great!  Did Shawn shoot it?  Usually he shoots everything before you pick it up.

Not that I know of. Didn't feel like getting charged for having my scope mounted so I didn't leave it there.
