At one time l loaded 150  Sierra BT, in 300 win mag. It held together on SD whitetail
You test them in a recovery  medium of some type

Not sure about taste, but if you age your meat between 33 and 40 degrees for 4-6 days it does seem to be more tender

I see you have settled on nosler, but if you need another option
The Speer Grand Slam 150 grain is a great bullet. Doesn't have a high BC and may not shoot great groups but it is a  performer on big game

I would go with the partition its a proven bullet on big game for many years. Accuracy is important but sometimes we take it to far IMO. If your shots will be under 300yds and on big game, than if you can get anything under 1 1/2" groups it is good. That's a 4 1/2" group at 300 yards.

I agree with 257 shooter. You level your rifle and your scope, not your rings.

Glad you are going Roger!!
The checking l have done, it's ok to rent shotguns but rifles is questionable at best, and was told to take factory loads as well. Some places don't allow reloads and why chance it. Remember l have never traveled out of the states hunting so this is information is from friends that have
Hope you have a great trip!

WOW, that is quite an accomplishment.  I made the mistake of reading some of the comments, and boy there are some stupid ass people in this world.

After reading this l had to go back and read the comments also, that was a mistake l almost answered a couple of them 😜😂😂

I am going to crank up my 257 Wby and challenge that guy to a shoot off. Lol That is amazing shooting.
  If you shoot as well as you say you do, he doesn't have a chance!

I agree, you can take him Roger!!!  ;D

With a detailed rifle rest set up like that, does the shoulder have to touch the butt stock, or can you be away from the stock as you pull the trigger?

You need to hold the rifle somewhat, it is free to recoil. The pedestal and bag in the rear will help the rifle to track straight back and forward again for speed of getting on target again with minor or no adjustments. You want to put as many rounds down range as you can before conditions change once your on target.

New at it. Savage 12BR, 6.5X284, nightforce 12X42X56
1" group at 1000 yds is crazy 😜

What is the fundamental purpose of the original post?

So he can tell us that his rifle has a  warranty issue that they are fixing, and that he is adding a muzzle brake that they told him would take 12 weeks and it is taking 12 weeks. Also that his friends repair took 12 weeks!

257: The brake make a big difference, my WeatherMark weighs less than 9 lbs. ready to hunt and with brake it feels like my 7mm WBY. which weighs the same. Very pleasant to shoot.

The only thing with the brake is the  concussion felt.
Once l got used to that l shoot mine prone with no problems.
