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

Sometime in this lifetime I want to purchase a Gunwerks Longrange hunter in 300 WM or 7mm RM.

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

    Yep, I'm in, as long as you count "semi-custom's" in the not factory category....
    I'm having my Winchester Model-70 long action squared, & trued, chambering in 300wsm, screwing on a 26"Hart #4, fluted, 10 twist with a mini muscle brake. Bottom metal, new stock, bedded, Cera-kote....
    That's kinda custom isn't it? I mean, I don't have a BAT, Surgeon, Raptor, or Stiller "custom" action, but the rest is custom.
    I can hardly wait till its done!!!
    Gotta say thanks to "shortgrass" here on LRH, (AKA Ted Berg, of Teds custom shop)
    Ted is a pretty cool guy. (& Very patient with a first timer in the semi-custom gun world).

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

    what if my answer is "maybe"? I would love to buy a new custom rifle, but after getting the new stock, new trigger, and, hopefully next winter, new barrel, my Savage will be a custom rifle. Now there is my hope to, in the next few years, have Kevin Rayhill make me a custom 270wsm or 300 wsm custom elk gun...if my wife doesn't find out

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

    I just finished building a 7mm Tactical Rifle and I am waiting for it to get warm enough to not freeze my fingers while I go through the shoot and clean break-in procedure. It's still below freezing here at night. I used a FN Patrol rifle (Model 70) action, a McMillan A-5 stock, a 28", 8½ twist Bartlein barrel and an Extreme Systems trigger. I mounted a NF 5.5-22X scope with the NP-R2 reticle. My cartridge is a .284 that I pushed the shoulder down to get a .400" long neck. changed the shoulder to 40º and straightened the body out to a 10º taper. I am hoping it transfers well to this new gun. I shoot 180 gr. JLK's at 2960 f/s. in my 30" F-class gun.
