New build decided

I posted back a while ago about an itch to build a .280 Rem, and now im pulling the trigger. Here's what ive decided on after countless hours of research.

blue printed 700 LA
Bartlien# 3 5R 1:9 26"
HS sporter stock
Jewell trigger (1.5-2 ish)
NF base and rings
Leupold MK4 4.5-14x50 IR

Hoping to shoot the 160 AB's. This is going to be my short to mid range hunting rifle. (600-700 max) Trying to keep it light, but capable.

yes, I'll post when complete.

    Good for you should be a great rifle.

    Hammer Bullets
    Advanced Technology
    Simply Better

    To hunt... or not to hunt...? What a stupid question.
