I was just getting ready to send my specs to my builder for my first custom rifle and it occured to me, this being my first custom, that I could possibly avoid some mistakes and get some good advise from the real experts. I will use a Bat reciever (MB 1.55 round RBLP), Hart barrel (1.25x6x1.00@28" 1:9 three groove), Jewel trigger (1.5 oz. to 3.5 lbs.) and a Stocky LVR thumbhole laminate. Chambering will be the 6x6.5x47 Lapua with a .268 neck. I get varying opinions on the amount free bore, I plan on shooting the 105gr Bergers. I plan on topping it off with a set of Bat 30mm rings and Night Force NXS 5.5-22x50 NP-R1. So guys, what do you think, mistakes, things that you might do diffrently? Any advise based on your experiences with custom builds will be greatly appreciated. Scott.
