New .308 barrel and then use less powder or one that gives slower fps when the .300 Savage urge strikes. Two rifles for the cost of one barrel.

Yeah, the 308 is practical, but the 300 savage is just too cool. I don't actually "need" a rifle, as I have a 270. The new Ruger Hawkeye stocks feel good to me, does the Hunter Edge pattern McMillan feel similar? It looks like it might, and I don't know if I'll like the Ti stock. Also, think I should do a 10" twist? Thanks.

Cool also works.

Have both stocks and to me they don't feel similar.

To different stocks, but I like the Hunter's Edge about the best. The Ti stock is 'thicker'.

If doing it from scratch then I would do a 1-10" twist.

Very well, figured I might as well spring for the edge while I'm single, and don't have to be responsible.

Good call but don't start out on the wrong foot when not single. Meaning if you want a edge stock get a edge stock single or not......just a thought.

Sounds like you've got it figured out. I'm about to take off to do some mule deer hunting with a cousin. Everytime I'm out hunting, I start daydreaming about a lighter rifle. That's alright, it takes my mind off the uninterested women. grin

What an interesting thread. 3 guys on the "Fire" all building 300 Savage rifles unbeknownst to one another. I never considered the 300 Savage anything more than a sleeper!
