I'm finally over my AR-15 building phase (3 built and 2 bought). In all honesty, there isn't too much to assembling an AR-15 from a box of parts so it's not "really" like building a rifle. It's more like a really cool puzzle... for 2 year olds... I'm wondering: (1) Can I build my own long range rifle (1,000 yards target / 600 and less hunting) myself if I don't have any machinist experience? If yes then: (1) Which action would be good to base the build on? 700 Remington? (2) I'm thinking about 7mm Rem Magnum for the caliber. Thoughts? (3) Barrel recommendations? Shilen? (4) Trigger recommendations? I like HS-Precision stocks so I've got that covered unless someone has a better idea. I'll cross the optics bridge if /when I get to the point of needing something to see through.
