    Ok so let’s throw price out the window for starters if you could only have One and only One custom rifle builder to build you a custom hunting rifle who would it be ?

    Thanks,

    Kenny Jarrett or John Lazzeroni or Kirby Allen.

    I would get Chase Curtis to build it with a Joel Russo stock from AAA flamed black walnut, using one of Chase's actions, a 28" Proof Research CF barrel (7mm, 1:8 twist, 5/8x24 muzzle threads for suppressor), chambered in .28 Nosler Imp 40º, with a BDL-style bottom metal, a 20MOA base, Seekins Precision rings, a Tangent Theta TT525P w/ Gen2 XR reticle on top, and shooting through a Thunderbeast Ultra-9 .30 caliber suppressor (direct-thread).

    But we're talking about a $10,000+ rifle setup...So, that will NEVER happen, unless I won the lottery. :(

    One that knows how to communicate and does not sit on your deposit for 2 years.

    I’d probably choose Jarrett.....cause when I was a kid that is what all the big name gun writer's always wrote about that I enjoyed reading and dreaming of owning one day.

    I would stay far far away from Chris Rodich at Valhalla Rifles.

    i had kelbly's build my last gun. I liked that they build there own actions, rings and stocks plus they had great communication and spent time with me going through my options. they make both alum and steel actions depending on what your trying to do.

    they were great to deal with and have a bunch of records for there guns
