Re: 375 cheytac on lawton 8000 build price
What is your goal with this rifle when finished? If it's a packing kind of gun you can probably get by with the montana action. If your looking for a real long range 1000+ kind of gun I don't think you would be best served by that action. Stiller or Defiance is probably the best compromise between price and functionality. There just isnt a cheap way to put one of these cannons together. It's easy to spend $1000 just to get dies, case prep, brass and bullets. Then you need optics that can handle the recoil and work well enough to dial at LR, $2-300 for rings and bases.
Stiller action $1100
barrel $ 450
brake $ 100
Stock $ 400
base/rings $ 200
Trigger $ 50 (used rem not the $200 jewel)
smith time $500 (chamber and install brake and install/adjust trigger
That's 2800 bare bones pricing. It doesn't get your stock bedded any finishing on stock or metal, ammo, reloading stuff I mentioned or even optics. 3k for a rig up and running isn't very realistic.
