First custom LR rifle

So I have finally taken the plunge and ordered a custom rifle. After many weeks of scouring this forum, looking at websites, talking to people and handling rifles at gun/outdoor shows, I decided to have Dallas at Lane Precision Rifles build one of his Long Range Hunters for me in 6.5-284 Norma. This rifle will be used for medium game out to 800 yards and shooting steel/paper to 1000 yards. Here are the specs:

Stiller Tac 300 receiver
Bartlien barrel - Rem varmit contour w/heavy spiral fluting, finished at 26"
Muzzle brake and thread protector
Jewel trigger @2 lbs
Manners T6A stock
Nightforce 5.5-20x56 with MOAR reticle
Nightforce UL rings and anti-cant bubble

I'm very excited to get this rifle in my hands. I will post pics once I have them.

I will be using Lapua brass and A-Max bullets. Probably will use H4831SC and 215 primers but need to play around with it.
Does anyone have any experience with terminal performance with this combo?

Re: First custom LR rifle

My experiences have shown the AMax to be an excellent long range bullet as they expand at the lower velocities of a long range shot. Conversely watch your shot placement at closer ranges as the AMax has a tendency to explode on bone.

Shorty custom brake
Jewel trigger set at 1.5#
BDL machined custom bottom metal

Cerakoted tungsten with black accents
NightForce Ti rings, anti cant and NXS 5.5-22x50 MOAR ret HS ZS

This group was shot off of the ammo box pictured. Dallas forgot his bench rest that morning.
