    I brought her home today--a brand new stainless 5R in .300 Winchester Magnum in a synthetic stock just waiting for the trip to Montana next October after elk and mule deer. It is topped with a Leupold Mark 2 adjustable objective 4X12X40 with Leupold rings and a Warne long base.
    I will give her a try tomorrow at the range. Need to get it on paper at 25 yards and then take it to the 100 yard line. I have two different loads made up 155 gr. Bergers and 178 gr. AMax, about 80 rounds in all.
    when I load my hunting ammo I am thinking I will start with the Nosler 165 gr. Accubond.

    That's a good lookin setup you got there Silvertip. It should really like the Amax's,and if you get a chance try the 208gr,my Savage loves them.

    Nice outfit you have there. Let us know how it shoots when you have a load worked up for it.
