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

My first, but let's call it a semi-custom. I've been chatting on the Gunsmithing forum about a REM 788 in .308 I picked up . I'm limiting it to what I can do for the most part. It's already threaded with an older Herter's muzzle brake. Gonna swap that for a better one.

Planned upgrades

Timney trigger
Leupold scope - most of my work is with their LRT's
Richards Tac-Driver stock
Muzzle brake - since it's already threaded
Harris bipod

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

    YES. Originally was going to use a remington platform, but financial issues and condition of "donor" action was questionable. Then decided after a lot of convincing, mostly from this website, to buy and build a "switch" barrel Savage and have not looked back! Would like to aquire a 6x47 Lapua barrel, and a 6.5-284. The base rifle is a model 12 low profile varmint. I do have a option of using a model 10fp which is also newly aquired. EGW 20moa base, Warne 30 mm rings and super sniper scope. I may have made a post previous to this one, but this one supercedes it!

    Of course. Some things the ladys are better off not knowing. Am working on a 7mm built on a 8x68 cartridge.
