    Well, I just received my custom 700 project. As if you couldn't tell from the title of this post, I went with the 6.5 x 47 Lapua. I just finished breaking the barrel in and have a 5 shot group within .25" I haven't even tried load development yet, and I'm not overly sure how much further I will try haha. This was done with 120 SMK's so I will most likely try a more "ballistic bullet" for hunting purposes. :D
    Parts List:
    Remington 700 Short Action receiver
    Bolt fluted by Kampfeld Custom
    Blueprinted by my gunsmith
    Bartlein SS barrel finished to 26" with an 8 twist
    Gunsmith did a great job of blasting the barrel and "scotch-briting" it for a nice stainless matte finish
    McMillan A1-3 stock with 45% black/ 30% dark grey/ 25% white
    Tubbs SpeedLock Firing Pin
    Holland recoil lug
    Williams complete bottom metal
    Engraving done by Kampfeld Custom
    Jewell trigger
    Seamless muzzle brake
    Leupold Mark 4 base
    Leupold Mark 4 30mm rings
    Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50 M1 with TMR
    with Alumina flip up caps

    I'm honestly not sure of the actual manufacturer. My smith, uses them exclusively and has been very impressed with them. So far, I'm as equally impressed! Sorry I can't give you a definite answer

    This is the load I decided on for hunting. It is a 130gr Berger VLD sitting on top of 38.7 of H4350 with a velocity of 2694. Using Lapua brass and CCI BR-4 primers. This was 3 shots at 100yds. From center to center it measured .115"

    At the time the zero was at 100 yds, but it was high because I forgot to click the scope back down to zero after shooting at a hog. Tomorrow morning, weather permitting, I will rezero it at 200 yds.
