Anything I'm missing?

many shots

Oct 7, 2009
I usually just do a lot of reading on the form and not much posting as you can see, so here goes. I am getting a new rifle built by a quality smith up in my neck of the woods. It is going to be a 338 edge. Here are the specs:

#5 krieger barrel 27" + brake (1-10 twist)
Trued and blueprinted remy action with fluted bolt
Tubb firing pin and spring ***.
shilen trigger
New recoil lug
Wyatts entendable box mag
Mcmillan edge ultralight varmint stock
Tac bolt knob
Talley one piece rings and bases
optics are still undecided

Plan on using this setup for gettin' out there in the mountains.
Now the question is, am I missing anything on my build; or are there any other suggestions. Thanks and have a good one.

+1 on the moa base. Minimum 20 or more depending on how far you plan on shooting and scope choice. Also nothing at all wrong with 27" tube. My preference is 30" but, that's me. Good luck with the build, keep us posted.
