Yeah the MPR’s are sweet rifles but you’re right find ammo or even brass for that matter is like finding a needle in a haystack. I have a just enough to get by for another year of hunting season but that’s only if I shoot it three or four times during the year. I hate having a rifle like the Christensen and not being able to use it fairly regularly. Now this issue is wm or wsm I guess. I wonder if a lot of rifles still have the feeding issue with the wsm? Idk why I’m fixated on it but I’ve never had a short mag. Haha maybe it’s just the appeal of something I don’t have. Thanks for your input!Ditch the PRC and get a .300 Winchester. Ammo will be far easier to obtain, and it really doesn't give up much to the PRC. I know a guy with two brand new Christensen MRP's and he can't feed them. mtmuley
Unless just looking for an excuse to play with another gun I’d just run the 7mm-08Hey guys,
I’m moving to Montana and looking to pick up a new rifle for hunting in the area. I have a 7mm-08 that I love using and a Christensen 300 PRC. I’m thinking about selling the 300 PRC and getting something that I can buy ammo for more regularly and not have to reload all the time, it’s a great rifle I just don’t have as much time to reload anymore. What are your thoughts on 300wm or 300wsm. I have a 7mm so I think it would be nice to have a 30 as well. Any suggestions?
The easiest/cheapest way to go!! Can't think of anything in MT that I'd not hunt with a 7-08.Unless just looking for an excuse to play with another gun I’d just run the 7mm-08
I own t3 lites in 243, 7mm-08, 270, and 300win. Also shot a buddy’s 308 t3 lite. Obviously bullet weight and powder plays a huge effect on this but I haven’t felt much difference between the 270, 308, and 300 win. Not great but not horrible to shoot considering how light the gun is. 7mm08 and 243 are really easy to shoot. However the 300win with 180gr hornady superfornance ssts were impossible to shoot. Neck and shoulder will never be the same. 180gr factory nosler accubonds shoot great.I too am trying to decide between a Tikka t3x lite or superlite in 308 or 30-06. My only concern for going with '06 is the recoil. Seeing as though i cant even find on on the shelf to look at (let alone try to shoot). I am curious if there will be a measurable difference in recoil
