    Best 300win mag mountain rifle

    I'm talking top of the line here guys. Opinions on what's really worth dropping your hard earned $$ on. Blaser R8? Sauer 404? Sako carbon light?? Anyone with actual experience using these rifles in a magnum cal?

    Rule 4. Identify your target beyond all doubt.

    My choice would be the carbon light if I had the coin and run it on 208gr A-max or ELD.

    Sako's are limited by shit mag length if you are using decent longrange projectiles in the 300 mag , just be done with it and go custom as cam said

    Just nearing completion of a similar build for specs.

    Cheaper, easier and to your liking-custom.

    Weatherby Mark V 7mm WBY-$900.
    Trueflite 300win mag 1 in 10 26" Number 3$1100 inc fitting.
    Terminator T2 Brake 14X1 Thread $298.
    (Awaiting fitting) STUG carbonfibre stock $665.
    $1963 all up fitted etc..... half the price of a carbon light
    Then it's just optics and reloading gear.

    I'm sure that there will be valid reasons for the 300 win mag - like a bit more oomph with heavy projectiles, but if its a mountain rifle that you want why not go for 300wsm? You save length and weight right from the get up.

    Wsm don't like the heavy 30 pills. Mine has been a hammer with 165's out to 600 but beyond that things get tricky without the high BC of the heavier projectiles. Hence the caliber change

    My wsm does great with 165 thru to 180 gn. If its too windy for a 180gn I doubt the 200+ are going to help much either.

    What about a 28 or 30 nosler if you do a custom build or a 300 Norma mag
