Re: How Much Will You Spend On Hunting & Shooting Stuff In The Next 12 Months?
I'm right in the middle of a project rifle myself...not a full custom or anything though.
It began as a Winchester model 70 Ultimate Shadow ($680), I have a McMillan stock ordered ($562), and I'm in the process of trying to pick a scope (somewhere between $400 and $600).
The end result should be my idea of the perfect hunting rifle for me based on things I think I think after 30 years of hardcore deer hunting...I'm planning on treating myself to some rather expensive hunts in the coming years...I wanted a rifle that fit me and was dead nuts reliable...or at least as much as any mechanical device can be.
I would rather have had it in 280 AI...but that will have to wait until it gets rebarreled, I'm not gonna waste the barrel thats on it, I believe it will be at least a .5 MOA rifle when all is said and done...too good to waste...besides, the 30-06 may be old, but it still works.
