    My latest gun.

    Rem 700 police 338 Lapua Magnum.
    Aics 1.5
    LW barrel, 32" and 1.10" at the muzzle
    scope is a Millett LRS-1 6-25x56
    Brake from Vektor
    Silencer from Hausken

    Have only shot about 130 shots with since I got a week ago, but it groups well. I measured these two 5 shot groups to be 19 and 15mm from edge to edge. I guess center center would be less than 10mm at 100 meters.

    I will apply Duracote later this winter, when I get the time.

    I also have a Tikka M695
    Caliber is 6.5x65 RWS
    Krieger barrel, 30" long
    Riflestock is unknown to me

    This rifle sends a 140 grs Accubond out at 3372 ft/s
    I have shot almost 300 deer with it, 23 this season.

    It groups well with everything it out in to it, Bergers and Accubonds are best.

    It has a Zeiss 6-24x72 and a brake from Vektor and silencer from Hausken

    How much would you have to spend it get in to a nice semi custom rig? Ballpark?
    Thank you!

    the $$ really depends on you. If you do some leg work the cost can be reduced while you round up the parts. Otherwise you can just order new...Still a wait time of course. The A5 MCM stock took 7 months to receive.

    You can build a semi-custom (called that because it still uses a trued factory action) from $1500 up past $3000. Things like bolt fluting, barrel fluting, break, cerakote, triggers, and super pricey stocks add up quick.
