Re: What would you build?

Stiller or Defiance Long Action
Figure it is for hunting and not benchrest

Barrel #7 or Medium Palma 30"
Should keep it from being to heavy yet some forward weight

Stock McMillan A 5 or Manners T5A
Want something adjustable

Jewell Trigger
Go with the best

Muscle Brake

Scope 5.5x22x56 NXS NP-R1
MOA scope is a lot easier for most to understand (US anyways)

Cartridge 300 win mag, 300 RUM, 338 Lapua
Only my opinion

I'll take an APS Raptor LRSS in 338 Lapua so that means:

APS Raptor action
Lilja barrel - 28"
Painkiller brake
swap the stock for a Manners T5A
Nightforce NXS 5-22x56 MOAR reticle

Re: What would you build?

Nice to see so many people in complete agreement. LOL! The poor guy who made the original post is probably deciding which of his previous rifles to use on himself. But there is a ton of good info in all the replies. Take a look at John Lazzeroni's website and you will see a plethora of excellent long range rifles, many with parts mentioned in the other replies, with the exception of the Schmidt-Bender scopes. Be prepared to write a big check, but you will eventually get a perfect long range rifle designed by John and you together to suit your specific needs. And when you get past John's characteristic bluster, you will find a kind man who will help you with anything. I spent seven months communicating with him prior to ordering and during the construction of my rifle, and ended up wishing I was his neighbor just to have his wealth of info readily available.
