Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?

Kirby Allen should be starting on mine soon. I've read alot of good things about his work on this site......Thank You.

My other choice for a custom smith was Darrell Holland, I've been reading good things about his work since the early 90's. Just so happened that Kirby got back with me right away and I started chatting with him, so I stayed with him.

Borden Receiver
Lilja Barrel with brake
Jewell Trigger
McMillan Stock, Pach Pad, Marble Camo
Scope to be determined

The barreled action from my 7mm RUM is on its way to Hart as I sit here typing. Same caliber again and will dropped into an H-S Precision stock.
Someday someone may kill you with your own gun, but they should have to beat you to death with it because it is empty.

Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?

Yes, but right now I am in that part of the process of letting different ideas filter in and that sort of clouds my thinking, some of which came from others and some OPTIONS came from within, (I think those are the worst ones.) I have picked or donated a action, and tentatively decided the barrel maker, contour, and chambering. I have even decided to buy the reamer, because I want to also make a set of dies, and possibly rechamber another rifle at a later date. It seems like the thought process has evolved, and keeps doing so, but I guess that eventually will prove to be a well thought out peice of art. Can't wait to put it all together

Re: Do you plan to buy a new custom rifle?

Hell yes be a bit hard to have fun otherwise, been downunder and a complete novice to the sport of in particular long range I've got a lot of homework to do yet, even the caliber I,m after is up for discussion, I' wanting to be accurate with good knockdown on medium to large game at 800-1200m any one have a qualified opinion on what would suit?.
