    I'm putting together my first custom, and I believe I have everything I need to get the smith started. Below is my list of all my current components. Is there anything I need to look out for, or anything else I need that isn't on the list?

    60s model 700 Long Action (spiral Fluted bolt with Tac knob installed)
    Factory Rem Trigger
    PTG Speedlock & Aluminum Firing Pin
    Holland Recoil Lug
    Brux #4 contour barrel
    Factory mag box
    Factory spring and follower
    PTG LA OberndorfBDL Bottom Metal
    B&C Alaskan 700 BDL Ti Ultralight stock
    Leupold DD bases and rings
    Vortex Viper HS 4-16x44 LR

    Looks like you have the parts.
    Now it's up to you and the gunsmith to set down how you want things assembled.
    Things like....
    Chamber
    Throating
    Shank length
    Finish length
    Crown
    Bedding
    Finish

    Yeah, I have to sit down and talk with him about it here before too long. I'm stoked about it, can't wait to get it done and shooting!

    Got any idea of what caliber and bullet you want to shoot?

    Don't know what bullet, but planning on a .280 Rem.
