Ill start off by saying I've never done any work to a firearm before, other than cleaning.
I had planned to buy a Tikka T3 Tactical this year for coyote hunting
, but figure I can build a superior rifle for the same amount of money.
I want a 22-250 (biggest we can use for coyote), and most hunting will be done in 400yds or less, but I want to use it for target shooting up to 1000yds. I figure I can buy an action, barrel, and stock and put it together myself. Is this a wise idea for someone with zero gunsmithing experience?
I also have some more in depth questions about the build, but I'll do as much research as I can first, I'd just like to know I won't be getting in over my head trying to build a rifle, and end up with a bunch of parts in the closet.
