    Alex Wheeler at Wheeler Accuracy in Dillon MT.
    Great work, dang quick, very reasonable pricing and the guy knows what he's doing. Alex is a member here and you can check out his web site as well "Wheeleraccuracy"

    You cannot go wrong with the site sponsor gunsmiths. Regardless which smith you decide on, IIWY I'd acquire all your components first.

    Alex Wheeler or Jon Beanland. I’ve had several built but both of these guys are the stand outs. They are hands on, customer oriented, have decent turn around times and build very accurate rifles.

    A lot of good folks to check in with on the site. Didn't see Len listed, but he has some ready made type things if times an issue. Check Long Range Rifles top of the page. Hammer Bullets can get you set up as well. At one time Hammer was working on some entry level long range rifles, at good prices.

    Talk with Scott Harold at Quarter Minute Magnums. The name speaks for itself and his knowledge of gun building, shooting and reloading is outstanding. You would be very hard pressed to find a better shooting rifle.

    Kirby Allen as mentioned above and also Joe Collier in Millen, Ga.

    Never met Kirby face to face but he has answered every question that I had. Subject Matter Expert when it come to LR rifles and shooting. Makes a bad arse rifle. I have one of his .270 Allen Magnums.

    Joe is awesome and one of the most personable guys I have ever met and he knows how to build rifles. I had him do some work on a Savage in 6.5-284 Norma but he can work on anything (and make it better).

    Jon Beanland. I have two built by him and have seen several more. All are super accurate and well done.
