Re: What do I build?

I would stick to the SA rounds, but feed em in the LA. Its so nice to have lots of room for the bergers. Im looking at a similar build off my current .280 REM (even though its awsome as is).
Im leaning towards the SAUM and running a short 25" barrel. If your looking for a lightweight type rifle, stick with the 24''-25" barrel. They're just handy and nice to hunt with.
As LTLR stated, you may want to look at a lighter bullet for your application. The 168's might just preform better to say... 700 yards in the wind and deliver more energy. The 180's are sweet though, and the 195's will be even sweeter.
