Good caliber that can be shot without a brake. Even better with a brake. I think Buffalobob's idea about having a barrel cap is a good idea.
Some kind of stock with decent (but relatively light) weight
Oliveralan's suggestion on the McMillan Hunter is good. If you don't want to spend $325 on a stock look at Boyd, Richards Microfit and Stockey's thumbhole stocks. All three make exellent laminated stocks.
Probably a Leupold Mark 4, but that may change as well. Not sure he would be shooting distances that would make him appreciate the Nightforce.
I have Leupold M4s and Nightforces and I'm sure he'll love them. One cheaper scope, (out of many I'm sure), that your dad might like is a Zeiss Conquest or Vortex Viper.
Timney trigger (he's not an Accutrigger fan
Good choice. I just put one on my 6mm and it made a world of difference.
Any suggestions? How can I make it better? Intended purpose would be delivering death reliably to elk anywhere from 0-700 yards. Any suggestions on stock type/make? Thanks for all thoughts!
