Chad aka Nesikachad built my 7 mm Rem mag rifle using a McMillan Remington Hunter with edge technology, Borden Timberline magnum action, Bartlein #4 barrel fluted and finished @ 26", PT&G bottom metal, and a Jewel trigger. Finished weight with a Zeiss 4.5X14X44 scope with Seekins rail and rings, sling and loaded ready to go is 8.4 pounds. Best group so far is .344". If your going to have a custom rifle built I would suggest you talk with Chad. Not only do his rifle shoot great but they are finished to perfection. He does ALL of the stock work so there are no gaps or irregular lines around any of the metal or barrel. I guarantee you will not be disappointed.
