    I have four different LR rigs in that they've all taken game at ove 600yds. Three of them were built specifically with LR hunting/shooting in mind.

    I have 15 that have taken critters over 500yds and numerous others that I've shot long range but never shot a animal with them. This year I shot a deer at 1006yds and a antelope at 502yds with a 6.5-300wm. I also shot a elk using my .30-8mm but it was only about 200yds.

    Do you guys prefer to buy a stock rifle and make modifications to them, or do you prefer to just have them built?

    I have 2, with 4 barrels. A.308/.243 and an .300wm/338RUM. I prefer to buy the parts and build them myself.

    Any more, when decide to start a long range rig, I start from scratch. As a south paw, I don't have much of a choice :cool: Factory options suck, for lack of a better term. I'm now kind of spoiled by custom actions & high end stocks....


    I have a few LR rigs:

    Custom Savage 110 in 6mm AI
    Custom Rem 700 in 6-284 (shot to over 1k many times)
    Custom Stiller LoneStar in 6.5WSM (harvested mule deer @ 655yds this yr)
    Custom Stiller LoneStar in 7mm SAUM (haven't shot yet)
    Custom Rem 700 in Lazzeroni Patriot (killed more game than the rest of my rifles put together)
    Custom Rem 700 in 338 RUM (No game yet just lots of LR targets)


    I have several others, but these I consider dedicated LR rigs.

    I have a couple 7-300wm's too and a pair of 7STW's. That's the benefit of being able to build your own guns. After 20 years of it you tend to of collected a few of them.
