    I use a Winchester model 70 in .300 Win Mag w/ a Leupold 4x12 VXI . Its not anything special but it works for me, longests kill shot on elk was about 75 yrds the closest ,which is my biggest bull, was 28 yrds. I never seem to find any elk in open country, there always in the thickest stuff I can find. I hand load for it now but have killed all my previous bulls with 180gr Remmington Core-lok bullets. Wild set up huh! [ATTACH=CONFIG]28ATTACH]68[/

The Ruger M77 is an old one with the tang safety that I have plans for. I want to use the action to build a custom 300WM to shoot the 200gr accubond for everything that my 264 is on the light side for. I find that I need a 3 position or better a tang safety or the safety can rub into the fire position on my pack, I switch shoulders alot carrying a rifle slung. Packing it on my left side puts the safety against my pack.
    mcseal2,

    It's nice to hear that the good ole .264 WM is still being used by a few guys, i also have a 60's vintage Rem .264 WM in a Rem 700, factory anodized stainless barrel.............after all these years it's still a tack driver!!!!
