Need help with rifle build
I can't believe I'm actually asking this. Never thought I'd be the one doing the asking but what the heck. I'm already a LR shooter with confidence to shoot out to 1500 yds with either of my 6.5x47's. Three times out of 4, I've placed in the top 9 of the Utah State Sniper Shoot. I've got the skill. I've also got a 20 yr old "lightened" Rem 700 LA and a Krieger barrel owed me by some friends. I'd like something with a little more umph! than the -47 and 140's. Not so much as a 338. Maybe something in the 264 WM, 7RM, 300WM zone with long, high BC bullets appropriate for elk. A brake if necessary. Good trigger. Not sure about the stock. I'll put either a 2.5-10x42 or 5.5-22x50 NF NXS on it. Somewhat light for mountain carry and elk is the intended quarry.
I guess what I'm asking is how would you build it starting with the action/barrel (when I order it) I've got.
