First off, I've never had a rifle custom built for me. I work in a maintenance shop with a benchrest shooter, Jim King, down here in Utah. I told him about how I wanted to have a 338Edge built and he recomended several smiths. One of them was BAT Machine. Is anyone here familiar with their actions? I'm looking for a "legal in Idaho" weight gun, (15lbs I believe). I just moved from Idaho so I have a lifetime license up there. I'd like a fairly heavy gun for recoil, stability ect. Secondly, I don't know what to ask for. Do smiths walk you through and build a gun from thier different vender's parts or do I buy all the parts myself and send them to the smith? I kind of wish I could find a 338Edge for sale but there aren't many out there. If do find one they get snapped up pretty quick. Thanks guys.
