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

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.
