View Full Version : 300WM build

03-06-2019, 01:36 PM
It doesn't look like the "custom build thread" page gets much love around here. :confused: I have several I've done over the years. I'll try to dig up some pics of past personal builds and some I've done for customers.

Here's a 300WM I done for myself last year or year before, I can't remember.

Stevens M200 action
Choate custom stock
Shilen 28" 1:10
Fat Bastard brake
Warne 20moa base
Leupold vx3i scope

All work done by me: Action blueprinted, barrel blank spun up (chambered and threaded), full length action bedding.


Here's a group while I was checking for vertical correction on the scope.

We just reinstituted this board this past week. We had a similar board for several years and it got a lot of interest for awhile, but then it tapered off so I merged it with another board. I'm hoping that by bringing it back it will get guys talking about their builds and projects a little more than just asking the occasional question to sole a problem they ran into.

What load are you using and did you use something other than a SAMMI spec reamer for that?
