Anyone have any experience with the .300 Winchester Short Magnum? I'm thinking of buying or building a rifle in this caliber, for precision long distance shooting and occasional hunting.

A couple of days ago, I fired a Savage Model 12 in this caliber at 1k yards, and was impressed with the perfomance.

Yep, I got one in a 700 action that I used for CO elk and a little for general deer hunting. Very accurate round, loaded up with Barnes 150g TSX, I never recovered a round and never lost a animal.

Good Shooting!!!
