**Critique my Build ideas Please** 280 Rem
SO I really want to build a hunting rifle. But I am not too familiar with what to do as I really only have heavier tactial and match rifles.
I am going to be using this rifle for hunting only, 25 yards to 800 yards.
Anything from ground hogs, coyotes, deer, elk, moose and everything in between.
I would like it to be somewhat of a lighter rifle. All scoped up, 7-8 pounds would be nice. not looking for heavier than that.
Here are my thoughts!
What I have so far is a Stiller Long action Tac 300 with a 308 bolt face.
I am thinking about this-
Manners ultralight stock with/without mini chasis. It would be nice to have the detachable magazine.
#5 contour fluted barrel to finish at 24 inches or less. .700 at the muzzle with heavy fluting.
.280 rem is what I am thinking, good choice? I thought about going to the Ackley but dont know alot about that.....
I am planning on shooting the Long range 7mm 168 grain accubonds. Until I get them in my hands, I will shoot the 168 Berger.
I think this will be light enough to get in the weight, but I am not sure.
What are your thoughts??
Thanks for looking,
