+1 on that threaded barrel, farmer103.

I can't own a can here, but that doesn't mean I won't move somewhere I can eventually. A side-discharge brake would also be nice for spotting those long shots.

Anything in a .204works well for dogs. I have a ruger m77,can pack it all day.
The 40 gr. v-max @4000 f.p.s will put a hurtin on critters.

Something I forgot to ask, how many degrees is the bolt throw and how far back does it come on the action you propose using?

I'm thinking in terms of a more rapid follow up without having to go to an AR. I like the three lug short actions specifically for that reason. A more ergonomic bolt handle would be needed though.

Our actions are basically a Rem 700 SA clone, so it is a two lug design and bolt travel is the same. We do put on a larger bolt knob though.

I just wanted to give an update. All of the parts are on order so we are playing the waiting game now. ESTIMATED price for this complete build is around $2600ish.
