starting first full custom

yet another example of this site costing me money.... thanks to all yall for giving me ideas and introducing me to the world of custom rifles.

after deciding that I wanted to go on a hunt out west, I decided I wanted something a little more potent than my .308win for a rifle if/when I get the chance to go....

....then I started looking at cartridges, and decided on a 7mmWSM build on a short action......

then I decided if I'm going to get a new rifle I might as well go all out and get a custom gun.

after a bunch of agonizing and asking a certain forum member a bunch of annoying questions, I got my parts list figured out:

Action: Bat VRPTRPIC
Barrel: Brux #5 with interrupted fluting
Brake: Mini Magnum Muscle brake:
Trigger: Jewel HVR
Stock: Manners MCS-T
Bottom Metal/Mag: PTG Oberndorf BDL/Wyatt’s Extended Mag Box

Action was ordered 2 weeks ago, and I'm placing the barrel order tomorrow. might be getting the brake ordered soon also....buying parts as I get the money to do so.

if/when parts come in I'll post pics and updates before sending them off to the smith....the pieces that aren't sent directly there....this is going to be a LONG process....

Already got that figured outNXS 5.5-22x50 MOAR... If I'm going big time, otherwise, I'll get another PST...that was the first thing I decided, and may not be purchases until a year after the rifle...

Nice parts list, I have a Brux #5 on a 280AI, it's a great compromise barrel contour, not too heavy. I also have your stock on the 280AI, very nice also. Good luck with the build.

nice to see that 2/3 of the big parts of my build have been serving others well.

Ordered the barrel abd brake today, brake is 4-5 months out, and the brake will be in the mail today, and then I'll actually have, in my possession, the first piece of the build....Action is coming to me for FFL, hopefully January, bbl is going straight to Deadly Precision to save me some shipping costs.

If you are going to shoot Berger VLD's you likely will need a long action or they will not fit.
