Re: 600 yard hunting rifle????
It won't fit your budget but here is what I am currently waiting for parts to finish up, might give you some ideas anyway:
#3 Brux contour barrel- made by Benchmark-7 Rem Mag 24"
Long action Blind Mag Savage trued and timed and trigger replaced by Sharp Shooter Supply
McMillan Hunters Edge stock
DNZ 1 piece aluminum base/mounts
Nikon Monarch 4-16x42 scope with their BDC reticle, plenty of holdover points in it to get to 500 yards. Beyond that there is either time to setup a good rest and dial up or there is no shot to take anyway.
The goal was 8.5lbs unloaded weight, I have everything on hand except for the barrel which should be here this week or next and the stock. Depending on how those weights come in it should be very close.
