Here's a check for $2,500.00

Build me the best 1000 yard rifle you can for that money. Money does not include scope.

I only have four prerequisites. 300 Win Mag, muzzle brake, right handed bolt and must have ambidextrious pistol grip or thumbhole.

thanks in advance,
Beelzebub

PS, is the Savage Model 110 BA Law Enforcement worth $2,500.00

Sendero with a brake and a greybull stock. Alot better than a savage in my eyes, with a great platform to build off of in the future.

Re: Here's a check for $2,500.00

Three replies and three different answers. Sounds like there is a lot of good stuff out there that a retired vet can afford.

I read some of the for sale guns and almost choke when I get to the "bottom line". You guys either have really really understanding wives (understanding LRH is like coke. One snort and your hooked for the rest of your life) or single.

I've got a fair settlement with the VA coming in a couple of months. I told Momma I was gonna keep a couple thousand and buy me a nice long distance rifle. She looked up from reading her Bible, pulled her glasses off, gave me that 1000 meter stare and the said "Sure Honey, you've earned it." Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition".

Thanks for giving me some infor and opinions to chew on,
Beelz

"1000 meter stare" I couldnt help but chuckle when I read that
If it where me I would put another 300 ish with it and Purchase one of Shawn Carlocks rifles (Defensive edge) You may pay a few hundred more than 2500 but you would have a full on Custom that would be as good as any custom ! Good luck with whichever direction you decide and thank you sir for your service , I will echo what the misses has said ,"You have earned it "

Thanks Buck. Not every body understands or gets "1000 meter stare". I learned that from my drill sergeant back in 70. It is spot on a lot of times.

I'll take a good look at the custom gun you mentioned.

appreciate it,
