Hi, I have been reading the forums for months and have decided I want to get my first custom rifle for hunting. I was just able to draw a oryx tag in New Mexico so I figured now is the time. Anyway, I am down to a 300 win mag or 300 rum based on either a custom action or Remington 700, thumbhole stock, sako extractor, and break. Ideally this will weight under 10 pounds with optics and be solid to 800 yards (ideally I want a 1000 yard gun). A good friend recommended I purchase a HS Precision and I spoke to them about an SPL. From my understanding they manufacture a full custom rifle including the action in house and guarantee 1/2 moa from a bipod at 100 yards. Then I saw a company called Red Hawk Rifles offers what looks to be a accurized remington 700 at a very competitive price(almost half) and also says their guns are 1/2moa . I also have been told to look at Borden rifles and have contacted Kevin from Montour County Rifles as he is not far from me and has a wonderful reputation on here. So of the three I have contacted does anyone have experience with them? I was barely able to find any posts on HS rifles. What is the benefit of going from a "1/2 moa" red hawk to a Hs or to a MCR for the cost? Ideally I want the best balance of cost and performance and would like to keep the entire rifle with optics under $4,500 (I a, currently leaning toward a leupold vxIII 6.5-20 LRT with custom turrets. Any help or guidance would be appreciated.
