Hello I have owned lots of different 338 lapua from the savage 111 lr,savage 110ba,Remington 700 and more! None of them have offered what I was looking for which is a lighter rifle yet extremely accurate used for hunting and shooting 1200+ yards! I am dead set on the caliber so please don't try talking me out of it! My question is what is my best setup to build a custom rifle with the lowest cost possible! I already have the optics(vortex 6x24-50) I was looking into a light hunting style atom like the McMillan a5, I have no experience with building a rifle so this will be interesting! Thanks for the help and any knowledge is appreciated!
