    I posted back a while ago about an itch to build a .280 Rem, and now im pulling the trigger. Here's what ive decided on after countless hours of research.

    blue printed 700 LA
    Bartlien# 3 5R 1:9 26"
    HS sporter stock
    Jewell trigger (1.5-2 ish)
    NF base and rings
    Leupold MK4 4.5-14x50 IR

    Hoping to shoot the 160 AB's. This is going to be my short to mid range hunting rifle. (600-700 max) Trying to keep it light, but capable.

    yes, I'll post when complete.
