Hey all if this has been asked before please forgive me, I am kind of new the the long range game. I am looking at a budget build. This project is to give me a hobby to do over the winter other than play video games. I am wanting to build a rifle that will reach out further than my 22-250 for punching paper and and also to shoot little furry critters. I intend to take it out to about 1000 yds. I am looking at either a 6.5 x 47 Lapua or a good old 308. I want to do as much of this myself as I can.
So my question to all of you is would you build this on a Stevens 200 or a Howa 1500 action. I am open to any and all advice. This action will most likely for now go into a B&C Tactical stock. I do reload and have been doing so for many many years so store bought ammo is not a concern.
Thank you all in advance and please feel free to post any info good or bad I perfer to make a n informed decision.
