Okay, I've started similar threads on here before and still haven't done it yet. I'm wanting to build a long range deer gun. I have two "donor" guns that I can base the build on. And, I have to sell one of them in order to fund (part of?) the build. The two donors are:
Model 700 sf cdl currently in 264 win mag
A Bolt currently in 270 wsm
The calibers that I'm interested in are:
7 Rem Mag
Looking at either a hart or lilja 26" barrel. Anyone ever have Hart Barrel Company barrel an action - good or bad? Anyone ever use stocks from Whidden? I would like to stay with a 6.5 or a 7mm; I know the 7 will carry more energy out a ways but think any of the 6.5's mentioned will kill a mule deer at long range.
Thanks for the input.
