270 win build

Okay guys, I am building my first semi custom rifle. I have read and researched everything I can and came up with this idea. After talking to many shooters I feel comfortable with this selection.
Trued 700 action with raceway reamed to .703
Ptg bolt milled to .700
Canoed bottom metal
B & C medalist varmint & tactical stock
28" Heavy varmint contour barrel with threaded muzzle
After market trigger (undecided) set around 1.5
15-20 moa picatinny rail
Rings (undecided)
Optics ultimately want night force nxs he zs moar
but will start out with what my budget will allow till I need the high magnification.
Not sure on bipod yet either either Harris br swivel and can't or versapod
Looking to shoot high BC bullets berger, matrix, cutting edge, etc...
Bed the action and rail if needed.

I think this is about it. Oh I don't see an issue with the factory lock time but have considered a tubb speed lock firing pin assembly, any thoughts? If you have have any suggestions feel free to express them. Thanks

You'll need 1:8" for the 175 and 1:9" for the 165 Matrix bullets for "best" stabilization.

Looks good, good luck!

Yeah I was gonna go 1-9. Not that interested in the 175 gr. since its not a magnum of some sort.

For rings and base look into nightforce, seekins precision, or leupold MK4 bases. For cheaper ring you have the weaver tactical or Burris rings to check out at well. I think the latter two run for about $40-$50.

I've pushed the 175 while fire-forming to AI at 2900 FPS and over 3000 FPS AId (settled for 2993 FPS for my accuracy load at this time) off 30" Lilja 3-groove 1:8" in my .270 AI giving me performance level comparative to factory 7MM Rem Magnum.

That's pretty impressive results there. Would a 30" be worth it to me or should I stick with the 28"?

I would stick with 28....even that is probably more than you need. Unless it is solely a bench gun 30 will be way to long.
