I have been thinking about what kind of new rifle to build for about 4 weeks now and here is what I have come up with.
I think I want it in 7mm WSM
, or 7mm SAUM.
I want a lighter gun than I am toting now 12.5 lbs with a 28" barrel. So I am thinking I will be ok with a 22-24 barrel in #3 or #4 contour not sure whose barrel yet. Will I loose performance in this length barrel with the 7mm short calibers? I would like to flute the barrel as well. I like the look.
Remington action trued up, Jewell trigger, 3 position safety installed, GA style bolt stop installed, fluted bolt, Sako style extractor installed, Not sure about the magazine box yet will I need to get an extended box for this setup. Tubb style recoil Lug or one like it.
McMillan Hunter edge stock, Web Pain job.
Send the whole thing to Robar for NP3 finish.
Or Order A Ed Brown Damara
