Re: Pack Rifle Project caliber selection

I was thinking bout having Randy selby built mine. I hear he is the 6.5 guru. If he cant flut my bolt do you mind asking how much was it to flute. PM if you dont want to post i understand. I should have the action shortly (rem adl) and picked up a remingto TI stock. I may have selby or maybe your guy that did your bolt skeletonize the bolt as well.

Thinking it was right at $75 with return shipping. He can add a larger bolt knob as well if desired. Google up Kampfeld Custom and you can get his information. Dan does extremely good work on Rem 700s. Good luck.

Re: Pack Rifle Project caliber selection

I have a couple LW set ups... .243, .308, and a .338 WM. The lightest is 6.5 and the .338 is 7.5lbs (scoped).
None are really "custom", all are Stainless Rem 700s.. The .243 and .308 are Gander Mt Guide Rifles. The .338 WM is a KS Mt Rifle.

Nice trio of rifles... Not counting optics I have ~$2,300 into the three of them.. About the cost of one custom job...

I pretty much stick with the .338 for AK hunting..

Ilike the CDS PLUS IT IS ONLY 1/2" tall, works well because I use a safari sling set up and binos above
