    T3 WSM Action or whole rifle

    I'm after a T3 WSM whole rifle or action only. 270, 7mm or 300, barrel condition not important.

    Run ar2217 and keep the pressure down and the life seems quite reasonable for a hunting rifle apparantly.

    Hunting rifle, no goats, no steel = no problems

    2225 is the answer with 140s
