    Welcome to LRH. Be ready for a bunch of money to start leaking out of your wallet!

    As for tips and advice, tell us a little bit more about the rifle you want to build. What do you already have? what's your budget? will it be BR exclusively or might it have another role?

    Hello trebark!

    Im wanting to build a very acurate rifle and not strictly for Br shooting.
    I have a few remington 700 rifles and im thinking of using the action off one
    Of them for my build. I also have a 6mm ppc barrel that i picked up some time
    Ago. I have done rite much shooting at 3 an 4 hundred yards but id like to have
    A rifle that can produce good groups at 600 plus yards and from what iv read the ppc
    Is more of a 200 yd gun. From the looks of the cartridges i should be able to rechamber
    The ppc to a 6br...do u know if that is correct? I know this can get costly and i do not
    Mind spending the money on quality parts but for my first build i think im gona go with what i have here at my despence just to see how it turnes out.
