Re: new gun project

50bmg,

Not really but there are no where near the amount of aftermarket products for the sako, namely stocks. McMillan offers several models so you are in good shape there.

Personally, I would say that a properly built Rem 700 would be a better option over the Sako depending on the model. This is personal opinion but I think you will find it a common one and there is a reason for this.

If you were one of my customers I would recommend Rem 700 all the way if you were going to go with a factory receiver. That said, a properly built Sako will be a fine shooting rifle. What model Sako did he recommend to use?

Hey 50BMG

Did ya have a look at this thread

http://longrangehunting.com/ubbthrea...p;page=0#78488


Rem 700 all the way...And I will never look back. I had several people tell me the same thing and went with the 700 action. You can see in the pics of targets that she shoots with the best of any custom action.

Look up Chris Matthews at Longshot rifles longshotrifles@yahoo.com


The Man is gifted! Thats all that can be said! He will get you on the right track

Re: new gun project

If you can't afford a shinny new Bat machined action then by all means go w/a Remmy action. I also must agree w/LL that Sir Chris Matthews of Long Shot Rifles is the man to build it. Look at what LabLovers 6.5x284 does that Chris built, it's a Lazer! Git'r Done!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
