Re: Rifle build
Your going to strugle on this one for $1200. $280 on a Brux, $350 to $450 on an action, and your stock is going to be closer to $300. That leaves between $170-$270 for a smith to put it all together. If you buy a Remington action at the right price you should have enough for a smith to do a truing cut on the reciever face, lap the lugs, thread fit and chamber the barrel. For the stock you might want to choose a B&C Medalist or an HS, bolt in or bed yourself.
