Whatever you put together get it out in the wind as much as posible to practice with it!!
I've built and bought a couple of goat guns but end up prefering my old M77 Ruger in 7 Mag......Its light enough to haul around all day and back with a goat in the backpack and after 25 years it just plain getserdone.
I have been getting some pretty fair results with the .300WSM and the 180 Nosler BT, been keeping my eyes open for a 7mm WSM
barrel too. At just under 8 1/2 lbs. I should be able to carry the Savage a ways. I have a brand new shiny 7mm Mashburn reamer sitting here, I'm waiting on a set of dies and will have one of those up and running. I haven't been having real good luck with the 7mm RM accuracy wise, once I get the velocity up the groups expand a bit much for my liking.
I will have a .264 WM in the near future, just can't decide on a barrel contour/length yet.
