Re: Snowy Mountain Rifles wants your input on ideal walking varmint rifle

1. 22-250 or .223
2. 22-250 twist=1 in 8, .223=1 in 7 or 8 for heavy pills
3. Predator action or Remington trued action
4. Benchmark light plama contour, fluted threaded for suppressor w/thread protector. (My boy says flutes look Cool)
5. McMillan HTG Adj. 50% med. tan, 25% black, 25% OD green
6. Trigger personal choice but 1.5 to 2 pounds
7. BDL type bottom metal. Not a big fan of removable magazines
8. Topped with an NXS 3.5-15X56 NPR-1

I already have a 22-250 very close to this. The barrel is a benchmark med. palma contour and the stock is an HTG Adj. but is 50% med tan 25% black and 25% red.
The light palma would lighten it up a little but thats the only change I would make.

Just a short update that we are still waiting on components to show up. Again, thank you to everybody that chimed in for this project. Feel free to call me if you have any questions or would like to build a rifle similar to this but to your own specs.

Final specs I posted on page 13. Unfortunately I no longer work for SMR and haven't inquired on the status of this rifle for a while. You can give the shop a call and ask if you are still interested in it or they can build a rifle to different specs if you would like.
