Advice on Sheep/Mountain rifle

Good evening everyone, I would like some recommendations for a sheep/Mountain rifle. I would like ideas on caliber as well as action brand and stock type. Also what optics would you reccomend? Im in the market for a new custom rifle in the next 12 months and would like to hear your opinions. Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: Advice on Sheep/Mountain rifle

260 rem would be my choice. Its light recoil and flat shooting should mate well to a light rifle.

thanks, what about a version of the 6.5? 6.5x284, 6.5x55 or 6.5 Creedmoor? How much magnification on the scope?
