Arrowhead Sports out of Cedar Rapids can set you up.
I am hitting 1 MOA or less out to 500 yards with mine.
Shooting a 310 gr bullet with a BC of .430 at 2600 fps
What kind of cost would I be looking at with this and is that shooting blackpowder or smokeless???

If he's getting 2,600fps, he's shooting smokeless I'd bet.

A 5" group at 500yds is very respectable. Not like the Ultimate but, VERY respectable!

1 MOA or less, usually less.
As far as cost I am sure I have less than $2K in it all up, with custom full form dies, pacnor barrel, B&C stock, old style Rem trigger, picas tiny rail, rings.
Smokeless powder build.
Contact Luke at Arrow Sporting and get a quote on a build.
