I only have four prerequisites. 300 Win Mag, muzzle brake, right handed bolt and must have ambidextrious pistol grip or thumbhole. Is there a physical reason for this?

thanks in advance,
Beelzebub

PS, is the Savage Model 110 BA Law Enforcement worth $2,500.00 Only if there is a $900 scope on top

No major physical reason. Just have always like the feel of a pistol grip or even the grip on some of the choate stocks. I feel like I have better control of my trigger finger, a straighter squeez and then my thumb and arm to absorb some of the kick. Probably all in my head, but if my head aint right neither is my focus.

I have always loved the 6MM bullet. I would really love to have a 6MM wildcat one day. Maybe instead of the 300 WM.

Fair enough. I'm just the oposite I like big palm swell, the thumbhole and pistol grips just dont feel right to me.
If the Choats work for ya then any long action Savage will get-r-done with the addition of a stock=Leaves you with even more $$ for glass

Buy a Savage F/Class or Bench rest in 6.5x284.............$995.00 to $1150.00

Send rifle out to SSS (Sharp Shooter Supply) or
a good local gunsmith and have action tured and
times...............install lighter trigger if needed
Have action bedded............................................ ............$450.00


Base and rings............................................. ....................$100.00-$200.00


Lothar Walther barrel prefit ( just in case your gun..........$275.00
doesn't shoot well) Never found one bad yet.


Our group has two F/Class 6.5x284 custom Savages and killing prairie dogs from 100 yds to 1600 yds so far, our range finder doesn't work past that. Other rifle was a .260 custom Savage with Walther barrel with 1580 yd kill
all the way down to 100 yds.

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

Here is another vote for a defensive edge rifle. I have a few of his rifles and everyone of my long range hunting partners shoot one as well. Literally just a few hundred more than your mentioned budget and I believe the best money can buy. Just my opinion of course, but if u do some searching that opinion is shared by many

That would be "1000 YARD stare " because that phrase was coined during the Vietnam war or just after and it was not a metric saying back then.
There is so many options it is just confusing . Everyone has there own likes and dislikes it may or may not be relevant to what someone else needs .
I would go a McRee fixed stock for $600 and drop something into it.
