@gbflyerI have a fondness for the 300 H&H. I assembled this one over the course of a few months in 2019. I picked up the action from an Alaska online marketplace and had Hart send me a factory contour barrel. Dave Manson supplied the reamer and there was none of the chatter that gunsmiths have come to dread chambering the 300 H&H. I picked up the factory stock on EBay for $60, it fit as if it came off that exact receiver. Winchester 70 Classic Left hand. It is the standard magnum action with H&H magazine box, bolt stop, ejector, and follower. Finding the follower was the hardest thing about it, I ended up calling Sunny Hill, as the rifle wears their 1 piece bottom metal. As luck would have it, they had what I needed. Excellent service and a great product. The rifle functions well and is a solid MOA with 220gr Sierra Pro Hunters. I had trouble with new Hornady brass being .030 short from case head to headspace datum on the shoulder, and as such the initial stretch was too much for them and they only lasted 4 firings before case head separation. The Norma and Winchester spec perfectly with no issue. It’s heavy at a hair over 9# scoped. I like it a lot. Since the pictures I have installed a red Pachmayr Decellerator pad. Much nicer on the shoulder now.
