Help with build please.
Hey all, I am trying to get some ideas in line. I have a 700 long action with magnum bolt face I want to start a build off of. I want to use an A5 McMillan stock but need help with choice of caliber and barrel contour. The rifle will be used to shoot deer to around 600-700 yards (potentially), and possible target shooting to 1000 yards. I want to avoid a brake to save my hearing. I was therefore thinking along the lines of a 7 WSM or 7 Rem. Mag. I would like to hear the plus/minus of these cartridges, or if you have any better ideas. Also, I would like to know what you would recommend for a barrel contour to fit in the McMillan stock. I want to go with a 28 inch barrel and need a stock to support that kind of barrel weight.
