First Long Range Build!

So i have been trying to figure out which route to go with for months now and been tossing up different ideas here and there. Finally i figured out what i wanted. My birthday just past last week and i decided for my birthday im going to get things rolling. I spoke with the gun smith and when he returns from his vacation he will officially place the order and get things rolling. It will be a Stiller Tac 300 chambered for a 300. win mag, broughton barrel 26-28" #5 contour, McMillan A3 stock 60% black, 20 % OD, 20 % light tan, and a timney trigger. It will be topped off with a Nightforce 5.5-22x50mm which actually came in 2 days ago. What a beautiful scope, now i cant wait for everything to be put together!

You will love the scope. I have one and have it temporarily mounted on a 22-250 while waiting on my LR build to arrive. I've been shooting further than I thought possible with a 22-250. Nothing like good optics!

Congrats on your build, sounds like a great choice.

And just think- if you would have made up your mind months ago the parts could have been ordered and you would only have about 6 more months to a year of wait!

Just kidding, sounds like a nice rig.
Courage is just fear that has said it's prayers.

The people trying to say the 2nd Amendment is outdated are probably the same folks that would say the same thing about the Bible.
