My thoughts for an Ultimate Long Range Carry Rig!

What do you guys think. I've started collecting parts for a custom carry/hunting/long range rig and thought I would share. If I need direction please direct me!

Here's the list:

Caliber: 7mm SAUM - 180 Berger Hybrids, Accubonds, etc.
Action: Surgeon RSR Magnum WSM
Barrel: Brux #5 Fluted to finish at 26" 1:9 Twist
Stock: McMillan A3 Sporter more than likely standard fill (school me? Edge too light?)
Bottom Metal: Surgeon DBM, Badger DBM, or Badger Floor Plate?
Trigger: Jewell

I'm figuring around 10lbs w/o optics. Is this a good assumption?

What do you think? Need any changes?

Re: My thoughts for an Ultimate Long Range Carry Rig!

You should be pretty close. Here is my setup that I am building for myself when I get everyone's builds caught up.

Manners T2 stock w/ 90% shell
R Bros Rogue Receiver
20 MOA rail
Broughton 5.75 contour w/ hvy fluting 26"
DE brake
DE cheekpiece
Badger M5 DBM
Jewell

All the parts on the scale with a NF in UL rings weighs 10.5lbs. This is with a unthreaded, unchambered 29" blank. So the finished weight with optics should be in the 10.25lb range I would guess or less. Will be chambered in 7 WSM. Built another one not to long ago very similar and it weighed 9.5lbs finished with a 4.5-14x50mm Luepy on it.

It depends on what animals your looking at taking and what you consider long range.
