    Re: If you could build....

    What a coincidence! Those are exactly like I am going to build:

    Remington Model 700 Used
    .270 caliber
    Stock stock
    sling swivel studs (rusted) Uncle Mike's
    Leupold 2.5 x 8 (will clean lenses and try to find scope caps by Butler Creek--lost in woods last season
    Maybe will clean barrel and check zero
    Search hunting clothes for bullets
    Plan to kill many B & C trophies
    Work six days a week like a dog, maybe ,if lucky, hunt three hours on powerline and kill doe at 300 yards behind house

    I'll post a picture when this beauty is done! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]

    I HAVE ALWAYS BEEN FACINATED WITH THE 408 CHEYTAC BUT IT WAS SO EXPENSIVE TO SHOT BUT WHAT YOUR DOING COULD BE JUST THE TICKET. COULD YOU GIVE ANY INFO ON BALLISTICS, I AM SURE IT WILL BE ABLE TO SHOT TO 2K AND PROBABLY FURTHER WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM. MAYBE EVEN 3K. I GUESS YOU CALL IT FOAG (FATHER OF ALL GUNS). VERY INTERESTED IN YOUR PROJECT KEEP US POSTED IDAHO PREACHER.

    Re: If you could build....

    OK This rifle has been built and rebuilt hundreds of times in my mind. The stuff below is a copy and paste from a spreadsheet so it will look fairly sloppy but I'm hoping it is readable. Nothing is firm untill I find the funds to send it to a gunsmith and any input is appreciated.

    This is the "Flatlander" rifle project.

    Muzzle brake: The quietest available or none.
    Crown: Gordy gritters deep floorboard?
    Chamber: Min spec. No reaming or neck turning.
    Throat length ?
    Bore lapping: Comes with Pac-Nor BBL
    Hard chrome chamber No
    Chamber polish: Yes
    Cryogenic treatment: No
    Leade angle: ?
    Finish: Flat black w/ polished fluting if any
    Other



    Trigger: Jewell top safety $200
    Trigger face: Narrow, rounded curved polished
    Trigger guard: Probably custom to match second finger area on stock.



    Scope: Night Force NXS
    Model: 5.5 x 22 x 56
    Tube diameter: 30mm
    Reticle: Illuminated Mil Dot
    Objective adjustment: Side mount
    Misc: Two 3" sunshades.

    Blank Length: 34
    Blank Width: 2.5
    Blank Height: 7" 12 " from butt. 2 3/4 20" from tip
    Shape features: Comb parallel to center line of scope and 1.75" min 2" max below C.L. of scope
    Butt perpendicular to barrel.
    Oval buttplate instead of tapered
    Butt adjustable for length of pull to compensate for heavy clothes. Total movement 2" in .25" steps. See blue print

    Custom grip for thumb clearance, grip angle, arch over second finger, distance from trigger face
    Hand rest under grip
    Wundhammer swell
    Textured grip contact area
    Finish Remington epoxy/verathane type flat finish


    Well there you have it. There will undoubtably be some changes as time goes along and as I eliminate some of the question marks above.

    I will be making the stock because there are some "Top secret" ideas that I want to use. None of the things listed here are a secret to anyone that knows much about stocks.

    This will be for stretching out my useable range on deer and elk from the .308 and of course will be used on LR varmints. And yes there are plans forming like dense clouds in my mind for a "Highlander" rifle project as well. Something in the .30-.338 area. But first things first.
