I haven't posted much on here at all, but I've done lots of research, both here and everywhere else. All that led me to my first LR rifle build. I started out with a Remington 700 .243 that I traded my Dad for (traded a 3-9 Leuopold VX1). The only thing left is the receiver. Here are the specs: Remington Model 700 ADL Receiver HS Precision PSV004 Stock PSS Bolt and Handle Hart Rifle Barrels Spiral Fluted MHV (1.250 @ shank-.940 @ 26") Vais Muzzle Brake Harris Bipod Jewel HVR Trigger Badger Ordnance 20MOA picatinny base Badger Ordnance rings I still have some decisions to make, especially the scope. I have narrowed it down to Leopold 6-20 Mark 4 or NF 5.5-22 NXS. I also think I might change it over to BDL configuration and add bottom metal and extended mag. I am considering going with a McMillian A5 stock as well. Thanks to all of you guys helping without probably even knowing it! I'll keep you posted. Hope the pictures turn out. Wasn't real sure how to do it.
