Re: custom long range rifle builders

I have use Chad Dixon on the last 2 builds... my guess is he'll get the 3rd too. Very few in that industry can compete with Chad's Resume.

Re: custom long range rifle builders

Kevin Cram of Montour County Rifles just built one for me and I'd recommend him to anyone. It was my first custom and I was so happy I left another rifle there for him to work on. He talked me through the whole process, went over all my options, and told me what to expect. I wanted it for hunting so weight was a factor. He promised under 10 pounds with optics and I'm at 10.1 with a bipod and sling. He promised 1/2 moa and it's shooting 1/4 moa with 190 grain Berger hunting bullets. He exceeded all of my expectations, now I just need to improve my shooting to keep up with the rifle.

Can do! To get a closer look at the fit/finish of the sticks, open the SH build threads, detailed photos are in there.

+1 Jim See for sure! He'll be getting my next one, when funds allow.
I run his muscle brakes, & am super impressed with his work, & reputation here. Not to mention he's about as polite as they come.
