    A few years back, I picked up a Paul Jaeger custom .308 Norma Magnum. It is built on an Oberndorf Mauser action, and is engraved and stocked in what appears to be French walnut. The neat thing is that it has a Kahles 2 x 7 scope in German claw mounts. Probably not as accurate as some of today's long range hunters, but a fine example of a hunter's rifle.

    I put the deposit on a SMR Paladin in 300 win mag. It's been a hard decision but it's finally made. Thanks for all the posts.

    I believe you will be extremely happy with that decision. I'm a .27 caliber guy just because that's what I started with. The .30 caliber comes with WAY more options for ammo/bullets and is just as accurate if not more so than my little ole .27 magnum lol. Im a big fan of the 300 win mag and will probably own one someday.

    Will they test it for you to determine the best load combo? Or will you do that yourself? What barrel contour did you choose?


    Congrats!!

    They gave me three options of ammo the guns like for me to try out and pick the best one for the gun. Benchmark 5R match grade barrel.

    Thanks. I've always had 7mm and love it deeply. Going to the .30 is somthing I've never considered but my hunting partner has always used the 300 so I'm going to the dark side! Hahahha


    It comes with muzzle break not shown in pics and a airplane approved gun case. Does not come with tri pod.

    Here is a little different take. I built this rifle to be a featherweight. Built by Northwest Actionworks. Trued Rem 700 SA (with some excess metal removed), Shilen Select Match #2 profile 22" 1in8, chambered in .260 REM, Cerakoted (bolt Microslicked), Timney trigger, PTG lug. I mounted a Leup 3-9x33 Ultralight with CDS on Talley Lightweights. Now I am waiting on the McMillian Hunter Edge stock (ADL, blind mag) to arrive. If McMillian's estimation is correct this rifle is going to come in right around 6.5 lbs loaded, ready to hunt.

    Thanks.

    That SMR is sweet! What kind of stock do they use? Manners makes a stock that has a similar profile, but is still pretty light. Have you decided on glass yet?

    That's a sharp looking piece IKIC, MNHs too for that matter. Two totally different builds. Yours is going to be a little heavy IK, but good god it should reach out there and touch something haha. MNH, that's one light rifle you've built, and a great caliber as well. I like it!!

    I would try to stay with a 168 gr bullet if it were me. Great BC and plenty of choices. I've killed a lot of animals with a Nos partition, though they aren't the most accurate bullet ever made, they are constructed well.

    I can't get over the looks of the SMR.....super nice. And their prices are outstanding.

    My .270wsm loves Nos Accubonds in 140 grain and the Hornady SST in 140 as well.
