    I found a friend with a 300win mag and he will let me take it to the range after next week.

    On that Greyboe stock structurally it’s good, it was the finish they decided to use that makes it feel that way. I had all 3 side by side at Cabelas and there was a definite difference.

    Let me throw you for another loop, you don't want the .30-06, and think the .30 Nosler and .300 RUM are too much, what about a .300WSM? I have two of them and a .300WM for hunting at home in AK. I'm also a huge fan of the .280 and .280AI, but my .280 Rem has been neglected lately. I think the .30-06 will do everything you are wanting it do and then some.

    After much debate and advice the new rifle comes home tomorrow. The rest of the components should be here by next Friday. Looking forward to assembling it and building rounds on the reloading bench.

    What did you end up going with?

    I chose the Bergara B14 Ridge in 7mm Rem Mag. It will get a VX5 3x15x44 and I will be working up a 160g Accubond load for it. It seemed like the best compromise between what I already had and a the 30 Nosler I was looking at.

    Sure will, I ordered 5 lbs of RL22, Federal 215m primers, 250 Accubonds and some Hornady brass. Should all be here next Wednesday. The optics shipped today and will show up Friday, going to be a fun week.

    Nice choice. I am going to save my lunch money for the same scope for my .280.

    Are you loading up Hammers for it or going back to lead?

    I bought a box of Nosler Etips (140 grain). No plans to ever go back to lead.

    Great choices all around Addicting. I predict some dinky grouping pics in the near future.

    Great choice of caliber and bullet. If RL22 doesn’t produce try H1000 or 7828.

    Race you to the range.....

    Edit: Run the shit outta those dials on the VX5 and let me know how well it tracks.

    I picked it up this morning, headed to cabelas later to get a Hornady OAL gauge and case. I wanted to go lead free as well but blew the budget on the optic. SPS had a sale on the Accubond blems and couldn’t pass up the savings.

    This one feels really good, well balanced, bolt is smooth, and a nice crisp 2-3 lb trigger. It has all the makings to be a shooter.
