Barrel: Shilen

Stock: McMillan

Caliber: .257 Weatherby

Action: Nesika Hunter

Trigger: Either Timmeny or Shilen? (Need some advice on this)

I use Timneys on most everything but I have mostly custom made wood stocked sporting or hunting rifles. I adjust them to around 2 lbs. which is light for a hunter. For serious bench work, target work of really dedicated varmit work you'll never beat a Jewell. Expensive yes...but worth every penny.

Pigeonhunter take a kook at montanarifleman.com ,thats the barrelled action I want to go with.I have seen a few and they make their own actions.The barrelled action in 300 H&H is 794.00,you still have to buy a stock but accuracy innovations and countless others make stocks for the montana rifleman barrelled action,and they look great.I have never shot one but the gun store I go to here tells me he has a 308 with a mcmillan stock that shoots 1/2 to 3/4 inch groups all day,all from a custom rifle.Thats my future rifle.Drop-Shot

Ok I know everybody is asking,why a 300 H&H and not a 300 short mag or 300 win mag,or something else.I had the honor of hunting with a gentileman for many many years that used a 300 H&H exclusively and I saw more impossible shots from that gun.One day I was walking through the heavy woods and Bill was watching the pipeline,no deer was moving so we were making them move.I watched several deer walk out on the pipeline and noticed the buck about 40 yards away,I put my rifle scope on his chest and all of a sudden the top of his head just peeled off,bill had shot a 6 point buck facing away from him at 240-260 yards and took the top of his head off.If that was the only impossible shot I would chalk it up to luck.We could kill 5 deer per year and he always made the hard shot.I used that winchester model 70 pre64 alot and made some great shots,I just like it.300 Holland&Holland won at camp perry 1000 yard accuracy championship,I'm not sure how many times but it has great history,and being a handloader I can keep this old caliber alive.Drop-Shot
