Most of the long range rifles I build are $3,500 to $4,500 diollars excluding the glass, rings and bases.

But there is the exception, most of the Savages that I have built are in $2,600 dollar range. That may change with using Gary Elisio new S1 stocks.

A buddy of mine came to me and asked the same question about 4 years ago except it was $500. We had a little contest. He had bought a new savage 111 in 270 had it re crowned and said it was a real shooter. It did great for an out of the box gun consistant 3/4 moa at 1000. I had an old mauser action and bought an adams & Bennet barrel already short chambered in 308. I finished the chamber installed a cheapo fajen stock and a bold trigger. It shoots consistant .4-.5 moa at a 1000 yds. I got a good barrel I guess. At 100 it will shoot into the .2's. I couldn't be happier but wouldn't expect this at all if it happened again. It took alot of load development to get to 1000 consistantly. I have a custon tightnecked 300 RUM bench rifle, a custon 7.82 Warbird Lazzeroni huning rifle and a 375 RUM improved Ultra Long range. Still Trying to find bullets I like in 375.

I though group size doesn't matter. Every time I even mention shooting groups at long range, I get 10 guys telling me that they never shoot 5 or 10 shot groups at annimals, and rarely are they at exactly 1000 yards. They don't care about group size. They say my benchrest background is taking over. Yet everyone seems to know how small of groups there gun shoots.

Now we got 50 posts talking about group size.


I,m just sayin!!

I also have a benchrest back ground. If group size and the knowledge there of makes you less of a shooter I suck. I feel it is very important to know what you rifle is capable of.
