I was thinking of a custom project, but the savage long range is pretty cool.
How hard/costly is it to build one?
I am thinking it takes an action, trigger, stock, barrel, bedding job and scope mounts.
The short answer to your question...it depends.
If what you want to do is hunt bear/elk at longrange, a factory Rem700 or Savage in 300winmag or 300rum would be a great choice. The recommendation of a Remington 700 Sendero is a good one.
As for a custom build, it depends...
for a 'semi-custom' which is to say 'accurize' a factory rifle as much as possible without going full-custom (no rebarrel), you can do it for less than $1000 plus optics

If you want to go full-custom, figure spending $2000+ plus optics
