Re: 260 rig for under $1K ?

The cheapest way to get an action is buy a used gun or new adl and hock the stock and barrel for 50-100 dollars on ebay.

shilen is match barrel on a budget IMHO for the best i would rely on kreiger--which i am right now (waiting on a barrel right now)

1:9 is good but i have heard can be tempermental with the 140's under 2900fps--depends on the barrel.

Williamsport has the most restrictive rules--.950 at muzzle and 1.25 for no more than 6" from the action face before tapering.

Check it Out!!--> Shoot the Smack The Smiley Match...and help AmericanSnipers.org

I don't know about restrictions on the barrel diameter w/ regards to competition, I was just thinking that hanging too long of a barrel w/ a profile resembing a truck axle [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] off of a factory receiver w/ magazine cutout and all might not be a Good Thing. Maybe some of the fellows w/ factory actions and long barrels can chime in here.

My buddy just picked up a 12BVSS in 300 WSM for $600. The synthetic stock was about $50 cheaper. I've seen these rifles about $500 chaeper in each case on the internet. His has the Accutrigger and is a very nice rifle. We had it shooting under 3/4" @ 100 yds. with factory Federal ammo.
