"I'm thinking about making a 7 blaser wildcat with a 40° shoulder and very little taper, would look like a 7 Sherman short that has stretched out another 0.3" giving it around 88-89gr powder cap, and still having the long neck."
Did you ever make one of these? I am thinking this would be the ticket.
My dad is in the process of building a rifle and he found the picture you posted of a tikka 6.5 Saum in a thread about carbon fiber stock colors a while back and for the life of us we can't figure out the stock make and model from the picture, he's determined that that is the perfect stock for him. If you could point me in the right direction on make and color pattern twice greatly appreciated.
