it would cost me 200$ more for going your route
what do you think about fluting the bolt
Why limit yourself to a 1:9 twist? Go with a 8 twist and you can shoot the biggest of the 7mm bullets if you wanted. No sense in holding back the performance of the big 7. I'll also throw out the possibility of a remage build if you didnt want to spend the money one having a smith do the work. That's the route I'm doing.
It looks cool and saves an ounce. I'm getting the feeling that this isn't a lightweight build though. Which in this case I'd say that its probably not worth the cost.
the way i have it figured out it will weight about 8 pounds the barrel will weight about 4 and the stock and action will weight about 4 pounds
A 700 LA is about 2.5 lbs with metal and trigger, wood stock run around 2.5 lbs
the action weights about 26oz with trigger
What action are you saying weighs 26 0z
i looked it up where i am going to buy it from and that's what they said
Yeah probably without all the bottom metal
To give you an idea what a fully ready to hunt rifle weighs a couple months ago I put together x 6.5x06AI for my nephew.
Proof med. Sporter 26" steel barrel, 700 LA BDL metal, AG carbon fiber stock, trigger,
NF mounts and 3-15 VX5 Leupold scope.
that's a fine weight for me because my gun weights 11lb fully setup
should i get a high gloss finish
