Re: Buying a Gunwerks LR-1000 a good choice?
The difference between a custom and factory IMO is the attention to detail. The tolerances are a whole lot tighter.
Action is trued up so it is perfectly square to the barrel. Barrel is a match grade cut or button riflling. The trigger is light and crisp. Stock is well balanced and usually pillared and bedded to the action.
You can build exactly what you want.
The best advice I can give you is get what you want don't settle. If you settle you will be unhappy and eventually you will sell it and buy what you want anyway.
I like the idea of this system, but I the human factor will come into play. The human factor is someone who is a beginner using this system and shooting a 1/2moa group and then putting it away until season and then trying to hunt with it without shooting for six months. This is why most are skeptical. I have watched the show and they do mention the other affects on the bullet at long range. They don't go into detail since they are for the most part teaching to a beginner level. I have to applaud the effort in getting people familar with long range.
