That what i have in mind? What you guys think? stick with this one or a savage .300? for $950?
The Mossberg is an entry level rifle,and not much can be done to it to improve it.It has little to none in aftermarket upgrades.
The Savage if it's a heavy barreled rifle would make an excellent target rifle,but depending on the stock that's on it,you may want to change to a better stock.

You can find some great deals on used heavy barreled rifles if you look around.
I paid $350 for an older Savage 110FLP Tactical 300 WM a few years ago,it was like new and shoot very little. I changed the stock,and trigger,added a Swarovski scope,and went to building loads up for it. It's a great shooting rifle at any range out to 1k yards.

The 300 WM has a fair amount of recoil,so you want it to weigh as much as you can get it in order to shoot extended shooting sessions with it.
Mine weighs right at 17 lbs.

Either way both rounds are going to rock you pretty well
4" sounds like a lot at 250 yards, I did my load development for my savage 338 at 300 yards and got my groups down to 1.6" - 1.8". I use the 300gr berger bullets with a MV of 2740 fps.

Im sure some of this could have been him on the trigger but I know for a fact they it takes a long time for that round to stabilize properly

The round does take about 300-400 yards to stabilize like you said, that is fact. There is also some sort of effect with big calibers not wanting to group tight at short ranges, I don't know much about it but there is some sort of factor there.

I actually got mine from buds, gun comes as is from factory, with one magazine. If you get a bipod go with the harris with swival 6-9" notched legs if you plan to shoot prone.

Im sure that some of this is also due to him using factory made rounds . I have custom reloads made for my .223 bolt gun and they are by far alot more accurate than any round I have ever bought off the store shelf
