Fine choice, though the .300 H&H is a pretty big stick for whitetails, it will certainly get the job done.

If you're after the meat, bullet selection is important, on light game like whitetails, with a .300 magnum, you don't want a bullet that will blow up at close range and ruin a bunch of meat. I don't think you can go wrong with a 180, but look at any lighter bullets carefully to get the right level of performance.

Any refinish detracts from what the collector who want an entirely original gun will pay, but really, so what?? If you're buying the gun to have and to use and not to sell to a collector, it doesn't matter, or at least, doesn't matter to me.
