Thanks everyone for your replies. I should have tried to clarify my purpose for my project. I acquired this rifle because I wanted to give myself a project, that I could work on little at a time. I've served in the military going on 11yrs now. I worked my way from the enlisted ranks to now the officer side. Yeah I know everyone thinks the money is supposed to be good, but hey with a family I put my "wants" aside so I can provide for my wife and little girl. Pre 9/11 I was able to hunt and fish alot, I miss those days, but since then I stepped up and took on the responsibility of being a leader for a platoon of Scouts / Snipers. These young men are what makes our all volunteer Army so great, they do a job I could not explain, but am proud of them.
I want to build up a rifle that is highly functional. Looks don't mean much to me. Yea I could go and break into the bank account and go outright buy a super fancy rifle. However doing this project will allow me to relax and reflect on hunts past and hunts for the future. My brother in law works in the oil field where as you know has a big business boom, he makes great money and buys a new gun of some sort almost every paycheck, I however will have to do this slowly because Uncle Sam does not always issue our troops the gear we need. Many of us have to purchase these items out of pocket. I help some of my young Bravo 4's get their gear becaus they are not issued "sniper" gear, they either handmake things or have to purchase this stuff. Many of you know the costs of these items. To us they are not recreational items. I do this for our guys because I believe if it gives them the feeling of "advantage" then thats helping them stay motivated. I am glad I found this site and have been able to read and educate myself, I just didn't want to come across as "hey i'm a newbie, teach me how to get a super tack driver so I could impress my friends".

That is a very special assignment.

I think that it is right to put your family and job at the top of the priority list. I did not mean to be insulting to you but to merely save you money.

The two barrels that I am familiar with are the Lilja and the Spencer. Both will shoot better than 0.5 MOA. I do not really know how good they will shoot being as I am just not good enough. They are button rifled. Both have made big game kills near or beyond 1K.

There are good cut rifled barrels but I don't really have any experience with them.

If you plan on using the old stock you can go with a #5 taper
with out removing to much wood.

If you want primarily a target type rifle then go with a #7 taper
select match (slightly heaver than a sendero taper) and a varmint
type stock.

The other shooters next to you will like you better if you don't
install a break and besides you wont need it with the heavy barrel.

Just my 2 cents
