With a budget of 10,000 +/- 2,000 you could have 3 custom rifles built and 1 good Nightforce scope to interchange between them.
Build yourself a flat shooting small game rifle for coyotes/deer and such. Something in a 6.5 or 7mm.
Then build yourself a big caliber for elk and moose in a carry rig, in a 338 cal.
There are way to many options to list for a budget like that.

$10,000 would build two custom action rifles both with nightforce scopes.

I would do a 30 magnum, and a 6.5 for lighter game.

You might consider Joel Russo for the stock work. I have one of his stocks and it is my favorite.

Here is a fancy one he built that I have personally seen. It is beautiful beyond belief.

If not, any one of the gunsmiths on this forum with a good rep should be able to help you.
Could you not buy a custom rifle for about half of what theirs cost?

Maybe, probably?? That is a good question. The hard part is to put a real value on the knowledge, homework etc that their system uses. I know Aaron has very scientifically tested his whole system. They are currently setting up a system to truly determine the bullet bc at all ranges with the Oehler ballistic computer and downrange sensors. He saves no expense to truly know the answers. He builds lots of guns to his spec and has lots of data to know what is going on. He is an engineer and applies those principles to his system. I have nothing but respect for him and his methods. How much is all that worth? I am sure other guys can do the same thing, but I know they have. Just my 2 cents worth.

I bet they are a great gun, the load is developed and ready to go. I bet the action on it is your favorite part.
