Our Assessment: This is an H-S Precision Pro-Series 2000 Long Action bolt action rifle in .300 Winchester Magnum; as if the ability to take the rifle down into two parts, the Leupold scope, match grade barrel or removable magazine weren’t already good selling points, about 99% of the finish remains, the barrel has an M.E. of -0.10 and the stocks are free from notable marks or damages. This is one cool setup that, as the name implies, is for the apex of distance shooters. Legendary ‘American Sniper’ Chris Kyle remarked that .300 Win. Mag. was one of the most effective rounds known to man, from Wikipedia “The Winchester’s factory ammunition for the .300 Winchester Magnum is capable of 3,260 feet per second (990 m/s) with the 150-grain (9.7 g) bullet and 3,000 ft/s (910 m/s) with the 180-grain (12 g) bullet. The maximum point blank range for the 150 gr (9.7 g) bullet is 318 yards (291 m) yards when zeroed at 270 yards (250 m). The maximum point blank range for the 180 gr (12 g) bullet is 300 yards when zeroed at 254 yards (232 m). The ability to zero the .300 Winchester Magnum and shoot without hold over to 300 yards (270 m) makes the cartridge one of the flatter shooting cartridges.” The adjustable trigger currently breaks at about 2lbs 13oz, the flutes in the barrel save some weight and all tolerances on this rifle are absolutely crisp. Included is an Americase metal takedown case, one magazine, a gun lock and two keys for the case.
