Bottom Metal. Box or Hinged Floor plate
Muzzle break. ? But I want it removable with optional thread protector
OK, well, budget is first. What is your top end, and what should that budget include?
Does that budget include: action, stock, trigger, bottom metal, scope, reloading supplies?
For me, I would build a Remington 700 action. Yes, the custom actions are cool, but a decent smith can build the Remington 700 every bit as accurate as a clone.
Stock, I prefer an HTG style stock for hunting purposes. McMillian or Manners, take your pick.
Trigger, Timney all the way to the back and taxidermist/butcher.
Bottom metal: bdl everyday of the week.
Muzzle break? Depends on the overall weight of the rifle. But a Vias would do the trick nicely.
