Help in building custom rifle

Any advice, I have built AR-15's from the ground up. Would love to learn more about Remington 700 and Mauser actions, ideally I would like to make a .308 or .300 RUM. Where do I start?

Re: Help in building custom rifle

A How To Video on how to rebarrel a 700 did wonders for me about 10 years ago. It's not as hard as one may think, but then I don't consider rebuilding an engine or tranny difficult either. It's alot like reloading go slow and double check often.

Are you planning on doing all the work yourself? If so, congrats. Do you have a lathe, tooling, etc? Just asking as that is a major investment.

Savage rifles are easier to build

Yes Sir, I do plan on doing all the work by myself I did buy a lathe, while its not the biggest in the world it should get me by, Do I really need to spend 20 + Thousand dollars to learn how to build custom rifles?

Education and tooling? $50,000 is a little closer number.

Re: Help in building custom rifle

Assembling an AR always reminds me of puttin' a new blade on the lawn mower! Not much to be learned there. Put some "Never Seize" on the bolt that holds the blade on.
