New Guy in Washington St.

Hi Everyone! My name is Kalle Hyrkas (pronounced: Cully Hercus). I am new to long range shooting/hunting. But not new to hunting. I have been a bowhunter for 30 years and have taken my share of game with the bow (30 animals including deer, elk, bear and 1 coyote). My wife (Tina) and I went on a self-guided caribou hunt in Alaska last month. Could not close the gap for an archery shot... Tundra too open. So I took a nice Bou with a .223 (301 yards). I now have a new love for long range shooting.

I am going to order a custom rifle from Len. Can someone please help me with the following specs and what they mean?

Brux Barrels - hand lapped 26 inch stainless match grade barrel, with #5 contour and 9 twist
Phoenix Machine custom stainless long action with fluted, oversize bolt handle
Throated for 210 grain Berger VLD bullets
Pinned recoil lug
Pillar bedded, free floated
Side bolt stop, release
Front and rear studs with 1 inch Pachmayr Decelerator pad
20 MOA Picatinny scope mounting rail

Thanks!
