I have decided that’s it is time to build a dedicated long range rig. I am now having a hard time deciding on some of the components. I am going to be building this on a Savage action. Now, here is where I am having trouble deciding. Since the gun will be chambered to 338 Edge, I want to go with a 30'' barrel. 4D Reamer rental has Criterion and McGowen and offer almost any taper I want and can even throat the chamber long. The other choice is to go with Shilen and am limited to standard savage contours, but I have heard that Shilen is top notch. Which one do I go with? Since this gun will primarily be used for target practice with the possibility of hunting in the future, I was thinking a #7 contour? The other decision I am having troubles with is the stock. I like the McMillan tactical stocks but I am having a hard time choosing which one. I am gravitating toward the A-5 or A-2, what are the pro's and con's of both? I really liked the A-3 sporter but I would be limited to a #5 contour.
