Whats not to understand? Most everyone interested in precision shooting reloads, so ammo availiablity is not an issue. The rifle was built on a budget because I am not rich and at the end of the day it's a coyote rifle. I can load 40 rounds of my .220AI ammo that I would consider "match" grade for the price of 20 rounds of winchester grey box .220 ammo that might shoot ok (based on Canadian prices not sure what it's like in the US)

Hey bud, I'm not going to be critical at all. The rifle and results look great. I am also interested in building a similar budget rifle. If you don't mind me asking, how much $$$ are you in so far, excluding the scope?

It will be different for you as Iam in Canada and we pay quite a bit more up here for the same equipment. Basic break down is like this

Donor Action 500
Stock 495
Trigger 135
Barrel 460
Smith charge to spin the barrel on 50
bedding 75
so without optics or mounts about 1715

Great looking groups with both bullets.
I'm looking to change over my swift down the road and was wondering what barrel length you went with? Also do you know what FPS you getting with 75gr bullets?
