well, I guess its only fair that I share a little about myself. I reload, shoot and hunt too much. Yes I admit it, I am an addict!
that being said, i am also an engineer and will forever be fasanated with tinkering about and always trying to improve things....buiding the better mouse trap so to speak. so, that being said, I thought it would be a neat endeadvor to build a long range hunting rifle. The 260 rem.
The reason I have picked the 260, if for no other reason, than the fact that ....aaaaahhhh heck, I just want one! I love the low recoil, shootability, and medium to long range capability. of course, when I say long range I am talking 500-800 yards. to many of you, thats like shooting fish in a barrel. but, thats why I am here, to bleed info from the experts.
As for gunsmithing, I have done some. mostly in the areas of trigger work, bedding/free floating barrels, lapping scope rings...... Just the simple stuff
my ultimate goal is a medium to long range precision hunting rifle in 260 rem.
if you were in my shoes what would you do? as for price, like all I would love to save some bucks and do some of the work myself, but I do not want money/pride to compromise the integrity of the finished product.
how would you build this and where do I begin?
