What would you build?

There have been many threads about only having one gun. This thread is what would you build for long range hunting and shooting if it's the only one you could have for that. Meaning you can have handguns, shotguns, 30/30 rifles, .22's, etc, BUT ONLY ONE LONG RANGE PIECE.

What would you want?
Action?
Stock/Stocks?
Barrel?
Trigger?
Rings/Mounts?
Scope?
and
Chamber?

Just curious what everyone thinks

    Re: What would you build?

    Bat action
    Micmillain A5 stock
    Brux 29" With muscle or painkiller brake
    Jewel trigger (of course)
    30 MOA base, nightforce rings
    Nightforce 5.5x22x56
    284 WIN throated for 195 grain EOL.

    284 win because of amazing barrel life, ballistics way out of perportion to its size, easy to neck up Lapua 6.5x284 brass, and with the 168 grain LRX i can get out to 1180 yards before i hit 1600 fps.
