Knowing what it will do prior to plunking down cash is worth $800.

Re: Remington vs Build. Advice needed

[QUOTE=matt_3479;856437]Just posted this and accidentally named it wrong and figured i wouldn't get any responses that way. So i have been waiting to get a build going for some time now because what i have just isn't enough. My college bills are through the roof right now and just cant get it done till some are paid off .

Maybe I am more practical here or the members here are like most American with debt up to their necks and don't care, but I think you should be concentrating on getting your College bills paid off, not buying more stuff.

If I can get my nightforce, and a good load set up I may even get her up to moose camp this year.

Only thing is I normally don't like selling 1 gun to fund another
Then don't sell...Just buy more. That's what I do.

I 100% agree with this!!! Shoot what you have for a year get out of debt then build the custom rifle, this is not the path I took and wish I had now cause I'd have custom rifles free and clear now!!!

Oh I wouldn't even be considering it if I won't be selling my rifle to my brother. If my brother for sure wants it, I will only pay 150 dollars (after the trade to my bro) to pick up this rifle.

If that's the case, I'd buy that $800 rig, slap that NF on top of it, and do work!
