    It's not really fair to rail on Popapi without knowing what his build entails. He's not trying to get $2,750 for a factory Ti and there are plenty of Remington 700 builds that sell in his price range.

    Nothing wrong with a faux Ti, either. They're great rifles.

    Don't know what the one guys Ti is, but point out one link where a factory Ti sold for 2500+

    If there is or has been (probably) it's a real case of a fool and his money are soon parted.


    You can buy a Ti custom action for 1400, custom barrel/stock and still come in under that price quoted above.

    Huh? At what point did I ever say that a factory Ti sold for $2,500+?

    You can do a lot of things for $2,750. Pick the option that trips your trigger and enjoy the heck out of it. I just don't see the point in criticizing a guy's price for a custom rifle without knowing what the build entails.

    You should look at the Savage Light Weight Hunter 11/111
    I own one in a 7mm08 and it only weighs 5.5 lbs. And with Leupolds ultra light weight 3x9x40 which only weighs 8oz's my rifle comes in at a cool 6 lbs.
    I know it's not a titanium but it sure is light and shoots groups I can cover with a dime at 100 yrds. The 270 weighs an even 6 lbs.

    The 11/111 Light Weight really is a great rifle. I have never owned a Savage until last year, but I just might ad more to my collection.
    Both deer I shot dropped in their tracks. That 7mm08 is a great round.
    I'm going to take it to montana this year on an elk hunt.
    Good luck and good shooting.

    Snake, inturprated your response a bit different than whag you meant.

    We all need to line different things, but I throw up a little bit looking at Savages. Not complaining how they shoot though.

    My Kimber 84l montana 280ai goes just a hair over 6.5 lbs. .6-1" groups for the most part. Have a faux ti 7mm-08 thats about the same weight. Cant see where 4 ounces less is worth a grand or more
