The point that I am getting at is that many of us have semi-custom rifles built on factory actions that shoot great but just donít have that custom feel or look.

    I agree fluting your bolt makes your rifle look bad@$$ (custom). It's not much fun to do but a cnc lathe with live tooling sure helps... ask Nape.270 lol...

    Does anyone know what kind of rings he has on that 40X? I'd like a set for my .300rum but can seem to find them.
