      Ed,
      If "cost" can except the word "value" ? Then I strongly suggest you value your hearing and the noise factor for your neighbors by adding sound suppression; either Sure Fire or what ever product Fiftydriver prefers. Savage may pleasantly surprise you especially if you use David Tubb's Final Finish on the barrel.

      Kirby,

      I like your recommendations and thought process, I'm going to have you build me a rifle it's just a matter of what and when. I have a lower end 6.5x55 in process on a new savage action but I am in the market for more rifles, 6.5 and higher calibers so I will stay in touch and we will do business. I can afford to spend, but I'm just getting my feet wet at this right now. As I grow as a shooter, my knowledge and collection will surely grow.

      Thanks,
      Ed

      This is what I would recommend for a top end rifle

      Borden Timberline receiver
      Seekings 20 moa rail base
      Holland recoil lug
      Jewell trigger
      BDL floorplate and magazine box
      Lilja #6, 1-8 twist barrel
      Barrel flutes if wanted
      McMillan HTG or Manner MCS-T stock
      Pillar bedding
      Bead Blast Matte finish

      Cost would be right around $3000 but this would be a very top end world class barrel that would meet your weight requirements, be plenty for any deer hunting and great for even 1000 yard target practice.

      Again, this is a top end rifle, I generally start there and then state that there are other options to reduce price if that is needed to meet a budget.
      All of my rifles are personally accuracy proven by me .

      Thanks for the interest. IF you want to talk more, please send an e-mail to [email protected]

      Thanks,
