Re: Building a LRH rig

I would suggest something with a heavier barrel profile than a tikka that provides for less recoil also. For your age and budget I would steer you to the savage long range hunter Savage Arms in either a 7mm rem mag, 6.5x284 or a 300win mag or WSM. If you want to get another cartridge its only $440 to get a custom barrel from benchmark (located about 1 hour from you).

here is one already setup and cheap.

    Savage great rifle to start with easy to work on and reasonably priced. Benchmark in Arlington WA has good reputation easy to work with quality work. I do not remember the name there is a gunsmith/builder in the Kent WA area. There was a rifle in photo section that was built by this gentleman he also seems to be of quality. so when the time comes you got 2 places to choose from to possible go custom. good luck and fun finding your rifle and welcome to your new addiction there is no known cure. Then again who would want to be. This stuff just way to much fun to read about and put ideas to paper.
