So far all of mine are bone stock, Model-70's, minus trigger jobs, Limbsaver Recoil padds, mounts,rings, and scopes, slings and bipods. Hand loading has helped dial in the accuracy to acceptable sub moa levels for L/R.
I plan on building a ''semi custom'' out of my Model-70, 300wby, and getting a new pipe on my Model-70, 30-06.
Who knows what Im gonna do with my Browning A-Bolt 338 win mag. I havent even shot it yet. Right now Im so in love with my Model-70 270wsm that its all I want to shoot
. In fact I like the wsm family of cartriges so much, I want a 300wsm just like my 270. I think if I got one they would be the only 2 rifles Id hunt with. The rest would just hang out in the gun cabnit, and give me a warm fuzzy feeling everytime I opened the door. Kinda the teddy bear effect. Gives you comfort to know you have em'
even if you dont use em'.
But ya I kinda get the same feeling when I see some of the equipment used here on L/R/H. Not to mention seeing what they can do with the right trigger man. Verry impressive for sure. The good news is that seeing these customs really builds a fire under your butt to get it done and build one for yourself so you can practice and increase your effective range, and personal ability beyond what it can be with most factory rifles. Either way it keeps pushing you to better yourself with what youve got, in the hopes that someday youll be able to reach the level to post pics and threads like those of Broz's recent posts and some others who have the skill, knowledge, equipment, and ability to make it all come togather. I love this place
