What's it going to be used for and how long is "Long Range". ? For me it's very important that I have extreme accuracy out to at least 200 yds, I don't need a lot of power as all I shoot is paper targets in registered events where Bolt Actions are not allowed.

Well ive busted several milk jugs at about 430 with my 300wby mag.But that was just hold over no elevation adjustments to the scope and im confident i could kill stuff to that range with hold over id just rather have something more precise and i like those heavy hitters not at all affraid of recoil.My thought on this custom was some where around a 32 inch barrel..I havent researched yet the best barrel lenght for the 30-378 but this project is down the road so i got time.

I got mine, two of them actually...#1 in .300 H&H. Waited a loooong time for one so I figured why not get a pair. Even had a donor in .30-06 ready for rechambering.

I only have one No.1 an early red pad .22 Hornet model 1-B standard with very nice wood. I would love to have one in .35 Whelen.

My brother in law has a ruger #1 tropical that was a .416 remington. He had his smith take the barrel off, build him a 30" barrel in 30-378 wby. We now call the rifle the "UNDERTAKER"! It is absolutely amazing! It does kick like a mule though.
