Re: I need some ideas for build using 700 LA

Thanks J-Speers.

I have about decided to go with a 284 Shehane and look for a donor gun to do something in the Magnums later.

I really like the idea of the 338 Norma, and that will be my next project....unless something better comes along before I get to it which will likely be a year or more.



So I have fully decided on a 284 Shehane. This will be my beanfield rifle so weight is not too big a concern but I do not want it to weigh too much either as I will likely still have to tote the puppy around.. Try to keep it around 11-12 pounds with scope as a maximum.

Right now I am leaning towards a 1 in 8.5 twist. Probably Bartlein if they do that twist rate. Not yet sure about length but it will be 26 plus probably.

Probably use a Sendero HS stock I have already.

I just need to get-r-done now
