Re: building a new rifle but need some input

308Nate
Just looked it up jeez i hate being wrong uh hum i mean confused hehe.
Tat range is still beyond my ability but hope to change that over time.
Any advice on rebuilding the 308 or building the 7mmWSM on what to use who to send it to etc etc and what ammo to start with or who sels custom bullets till i can make my own and do it correctly would be appriciated.
If anyone that knows a good web site for dummies trying to get into comp shooting would be great also.

Re: building a new rifle but need some input

I saw that you are in Missouri When i used to live there i got to know S1 at www.ARTACTICAL.com His work is second to none
He is just finishing up a Nesika M in 30-338 Lapua on a lonewolf carbon fiber stock for me. I will post pics when it is done.

in the mean time here is a link to a 7mm WSM he just finished for a mutual friend http://artactical.com/groupee/forums...5/m/7471022361

Hope this helps

+1 On what the Doctor said and 308 about the 7mm WSM having enough steam @ 1000.

I live just a few miles down the road from S1, he built me a lazer of a 6.5 WSM. It shoots 123 grain Scenars into an inch and a half at 600. Nobody comes close to his quality of work. I have seen his stuff win Sniper matches, 600 yard benchrest matches. Saw one of his rigs shoot a clean 800 with 56 X's at 600 in F-class as well, it won that day too. No one else I have talked to wants to give a 1/4 M0A guarantee like he does either.

Here is a link to a pic of my 6.5 WSM, made a one shot kill on a doe at 1,060 yards with a 123 on my brother's farm in the bootheel.

Here's some advice from one whose been "around a while"! Find you a "used" M70 long action rifle...trash the barrel and get you something like a Premium Grade Douglas #5 contour barrel and chamber it for .338 Win Mag topped off with a Leupold scope maybe of 4.5x14x50MM with target knobs! Use Marine-Tex to bed the stock/relieve the barrel so it's not riding wood and you'll have something that will work real well! No...it ain't gonna be as hot as some of the other "hot rods" but if you learn to use it right....it will work real well and you won't be ordering a new tube every 800 rouds or less! This will make a fine elk/moose rifle and will "whack" any mulies/whitetails you want to dispose of with it! If you're recoil sensitive...it won't be too ruff on you and you can always have a brake put on up front!
