this is a long range hunting site, and i assume the rifle would be used for that purpose.
ive been involved in that activity for about 40 years with both factory and custom built rifles.
in my opinion, with the quality factory offerings we now have available, there is little need for a custom rifle
for most or us.
as suggested, the remington sendero would be an excellant choice. ive never seen a poor shooting sendero.
also, dont get the impression a nightforce scope is essential for long range hunting, because it certainly isnt.
i loaned my grandson one of my straight 12x leupolds w/target knobs to put on his 7mm ultra mag sendero about 4 years ago.
it dosent appear as though its coming back.
they can be bought on ebay for about $400.
so with $800 for the gun, and $400 for a quality scope, youve got an outfit i guarantee you'll be happy with. i know my grandson is.
