The "comb" will be the action of the gun so it's not adjustable. The scope will be mounted above the barrel on a block not on top of the action. When I refered to 1.350 that's barrel diameter. I am just going to use a removable scope base on the barrel block so I will have the option of changing heights.

It will be a bullpup style gun with a lawton 8000 action and chambered in something based on the 408 case and probably necked to 375 but possibly 338, either AM or snipe-tac. I am working on the barrel block and stock design now. I was going to mill the scope base into the block but may go with a bolt on scope base for flexability. I don't really want to use and adjustable cheek piece. I will probably end up offsetting the scope to the left of the centerline of the barrel to make it a little more comfortable. I got the idea from the pics Dave Wilson posted on here of his 338 edge bullpup. If I go with 375 with a shorter barrel and bullpup design it might be sorta managable for hunting.
