I've been a fan of these rifles since they came out, but I was younger then and couldnt afford one. I have a few Remington 700's and such that i've used in the past and then got into slug hunting with shotguns the last 8 yrs or so. I long since forgotten about Steyr. Recently I've been craving a new rifle and was actually looking for something more tactical to do some long range shooting. My uncle gave my father and I a custom .22-243 setup that drives tacks and is a fun gun, so I wanted something similar but in larger .300 win mag or short mag. While looking for .300 guns on gunbroker, I found a Steyr in 300 wsm and it immediately brought back memories of the Steyr guns. I browsed the websites and saw they had a few models I wanted, especially the big bore .450 marlin since I'm a big bore fan. I couldnt find much and really settled on getting a Remington 700P in 300 mag. I found one I was gonna buy at a store, but saw a local gun show going on, and decided to go just for fun. Long story short, I stumbled upon this 376 Steyr pro hunter at the last table and decided, no way am I gonna pass this up. I bought it and threw on a 3-9 x 40 Nikon scope. Ordered some shells, factory Hornady 225's and 270's to try out, hopefully this weekend. Gun was alittle light for my taste, so I added some lead to the stock to get it about the same weight as my custom slug gun. (Tame the recoil nicely) This one was custom painted by the original owner...stock is a dark brown-ish green color with a black spiderwebbing effect...actually looks kinda good in my opinion. I kinda want to redo it dark gray with black spiderwebbing or darker tan color with black spiderwebbing. Oh well, I like it how it is so far. Finding brass has been difficult. All retail places online seem to be out of stock, searched around and see Hornady may not make more til August? GunBroker didnt have any either but lots of commercial loaded rounds available so I'll just buy that, and reuse the cases hopefully.
