I would like to build a EXTREMELY long range rifle around the berger .284 180 grain vld. 3200fps transsonic over 2000 meters....
This rifle will be for hunting and target shooting as well as fun!
I have experience with 300smk's in the 338 lapua and 208amx-210berger-220smk and 240smk's in the 300win and 30-378. I am looking to make a rifle that shoots as flat or flatter than above without as much recoil. A 180 grain bullet in a 7mm is a LOT less recoil than a 300 in a 338 lapua!
Have any of you built such a rifle?
What action? I am thinking the Surgeon Magnum action as I am planning on a 30"-32" barrel Open to suggestions... Must be a repeater.
What magazine... Open to suggestions.
Barrel? I am thinking an ABS carbon wrapped to keep weight down.
Stock? I am partial to Bell and Carlson's and how they fit me. I believe in bedding blocks. Also open to bull pups and tube guns...
Weight should be no more than 14-15 lbs max...
