I was in the Army for about 15 years, (7 years enlisted 13F4V, 8 years Warrant Officer 153DB). I currently am a Federal Agent with Homeland Security. I'm a gun lover (currently building a VLTOR AR-15) I have a Remington 700, Leupold Mk4 and will be upgrading the bolt, stock and trigger in the near future, so I will be soliciting suggestions and advice soon.
Since my initial post, I have decided to build a new rifle from scratch. A new Remington 700 LA from Brownells, A new Dave Tubb high performance bolt, and will be ordering a Krieger 5-r, 26", 300 win mag barrel. I am still researching stocks (Mcmillan, HS Precision, AI). I welcome any suggestions/input or advice from you experts out there.
