Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?
This rifle project started last year in September 08...
I bought a Remington M700 .338 RUM stainless for the action.
Action: Remington M700 stainless (trued)
Caliber: .338 Remington Ultra Magnum
Barrel; Hart barrel-Sendero contour (breach-1.250 muzzle-0.80) unfluted 26"
Muzzle Brake: Vias
optics: Schmidt & Bender 4-16X50mm Classic, reticle-A7 non-illuminated
with Schmidt & Bender bullet elevation compensator knob.
also looking at Meopta 3-12X50mm illuminated Dot!
Scope to be determined later...
This was going to be an upgraded sendero, with fiberglass stock.
The barreled action is completed and sitting on my bench,
the stainless action and barrel were bead blasted to a dull matt.
Today, I completed the work sheet for Accurated Inovations wood M-40 stock, with an upgrade in wood to AA fancy Claro Walnut.
I sorta want/thinking Bastonge Walnut...
Going to let this sit for a week before mailing.
Thinking about using Duracoat (Parker) for coating on action and barrrel,
might do a black color for bolt (origional M-40 )contrast....
never used the stuff, opinions are welcome?
