    Zookman,

    My son and I just built a 7mm rem mag on a savage action and we got it done for less than $700.00. We just shot it this morning and it print .75" group at 100 with a 12mph 9 o-clock wind. I dont think that is to shabby for our first build. If your pennies are tight savage is the way to go imo.

    Good luck, JRW

    Im just now having my first true custom done. I am building a 7 stw on a rem 700 action with a broughton bbl i am pretty excited. I had a sendero converted to ackley improved. There is a special feeling about having a custom rifle built. It is a time consuming process but i think it is well worth it. I traded for the rifle i used for the action. The bbl was about 560.00 and the action work and bedding and install will be about 400.00.

    Lets define exactly what you are talking about.

    Are you talking custom or semi custom (simple rebarrel)?

    How much will break the bank?

    New or used?

    If it was me I would do the savage custom for $700 yourself and spend the other $1300 on good glass. But that is just me.
