Reading these post, shows we have a lot of excellent gunsmiths to choose from. This is a good thing.

There are tricks to making a competition rifle a winner in every discipline, so when you say LR competition are you talking tactical, FTR, Open F class, 600 or 1000 yard BR. You need a smith that knows that disciplines rules and what to do and not to do.

A top 1k or 600 yd Light BR gun (17 lbs) does not make a walking around hunting gun as it will have a 3" forend and the weight.

A top FTR gun will weigh up to 20 lbs and have a 30-32" barrel.

Keep in mind, not all good LR hunting smiths build good competition guns and vice versa. They are two completely different animals.

IMO you are really almost talking two different guns completely in most cases.

Tell us exactly what type LR comp you plan on doing and then we can focus you to the right smiths.
