Does building your own AR count as buying a custom rifle? I haven't voted yet.

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

I have a Rem 700 stainless ultramag action, but haven't got around to start the build. I keep buying factory Remington stainless guns, HS stocks for them , Leupolds, dies, brass and bullets. That the problem with being a gunaddict, can't say no to a good deal.

It's not that I do not want to, or the wife will not let me. Its come down to the under-utilization of what rifles I already have.

Ordered mine on Jan 7th from Corlanes

Defiance action in 300 win mag
Ted Gaillard 26 fluted Barrel

Turn around for parts is quick so should be at the range by June or earlier with it. Can't wait to see what it can do.

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

built my last one- probably have to do the next one. Just want to warn anyone who is planning to buy RCBSload programming...DON'T. You should spend the money on the $1000. wouth of manuals you have to OWN to use it! they now require that vice the nominal fee they used to charge for "updating" the program via the Net with a minimal payment for the additional books you want turned on. I had ver 2.88 and loved it....then I made the mistake of buying the upgrade to 3.00 them 3.36, each sucessively worse! thank God I saved the old version on my old hard drive and my old lap top so that I can access all those old manuals I use. I will now go out and buy at least 4-5 new manuals so that I can continue my 50 plus years of reloading. Pissed in ID.

Will buy or build a new custom rifle soon, after the disaster with the Remington .308 I am firmly convinced a custom rifle is the only way to fly.
