    Custom rifle cost going to the moon , when does it end ?

    Custom rifle cost going to the moon , when does it end ?

    These guns often appeal, like other high end items, to people with more money than sense, often who can't/don't want to set up rifle, work up loads, etc. That probably have a factory or dealer modded diesel 1ton pickup that's way more that they need, as well. This recent economy (pre-COVID 19)...

    exploding bullets on this real or are people guessing?

    Absolutely. As an extreme example, in 1969, (I was 15), I purchased for $100 a custom Mauser 25'06 from my grandpa that he had taken in trade.
