No problem. Here's the breakdown....
Leupold VX1 - ~$200
M1 Knobs ~$60 each
Mil-Dot reticle ~$160
Burris Signature Rings and Bases ~$60
If I had it to do over again, I would not have changed the reticle. I made the modifications because I already had the scope and modifying was less expensive than buying a scope that was at this quality level with these options. You can investigate all the options that Leupold has to offer by visiting their custom shop https://customshop.leupold.com/custom_shop.php
On their website, you can 'build' your scope online and see the various costs.
Process here is easy. Build, order and pay for the scope online or if you already have a scope, call Leupold, tell them what you want, send them the scope with instructions and payment. They do the work and send it back.
Here are costs for other items....
Boyds JRS Classic Stock $70 (bought this online directly from boyds and nephew finished it himself)
Accurizing by Kevin Cram at Montour County Rifles (www.montourcountyrifles.com
) $250 (he normally charges $200, but I had him add pillars to the bedding job). Visit his website and click on 'Accuracy Package'. It entails...
Full action bed
The process for getting the accurizing done, was simple. Call Kevin, tell him what you want. Mail the rifle to him. He does the work, mails it back to you and write him a check.
So overall the optics and accurizing were ~$860 (+cost of rifle). Final weight of the project is 9lbs.
Two more examples for you....
Here's a 308 that went through a similar transformation...Read the thread all the way to the end and you will see it's continued transformation into a full-custom 260.

My 280 (it orignally had the scope that is now on nephew's rifle), read through the thread and you will see that the 280 now has a VX3 with M1's and TMR reticle.
