    is the Gunwerks magnus in 28 nosler really worth the cost ..... titanium action and fluted barrel with a Nightforce ATACR 7-35.

    Looking for along range rifle that will kill an elk size animal at 1000, and do
    It consecutively.
    Just wondering if you folks think this investment is worth the 10 k ish price.
    Any other caliber suggestions

    Thanks in advance

    If I ever get a 28 nosler It will come from Ryan Pierce. He has built a lot of 28 noslers and they all seem to hammer. I wouldn't pay gunwerks prices but that's just me.

    Beautiful Rifles alright but the reality is your paying some mark up on a Custom build
    Price out the best parts available
    Titanium Action&BM-1500.00
    Fluted Barrel ———- 500.00
    Trigger. ——————- 200.00
    CF Stock—————— 700.00
    Scope & Mounts—— 3000.00
    Labour for build——. 1200.00

    Aproximately 7000.00
    I’m sure if you shopped around you could shave some off the prices I posted.

    There are many, many calibers that will fill your requirements. The hard part is feeling 100% comfortable about making the shot. There’s so many variables to making a 1000 yard shot successful and ethical. You can build a very accurate rifle for far less than 10k. Looking at what’s available now, it’s really hard to beat the 338 and 375 calibers. Lots of good heavy bullets with high BCs.

    That is strap for what they offer. I had pierce engineering do a full titanium and carbon gun for way less that that.
    Ti action, with Ti firing pin, manners thumbole stock, proof carbon barrel, Ti muzzle break. Every little part we could make from Ti we did. Even went with plastic bottom metal. Really spared no expense and the did a great job. Turn around was 3 months and two of that was waiting on the stock on my end. Total cost was around $4-4500 if I’m not mistaken.
    That leaves a lot of headroom for a scope. Plus you can do a fluted barrel cheaper. So you could save some money and have a great rifle that will more than likely out shoot you. Most of mine do.
    I have gone the expensive route with a turn key .375 Allen mag. Very expensive but I wanted my dream rifle for long range so I had him do it. That was back when I was new to long range stuff.
    As for caliber I would look at the 300 Norma mag that’s my next one for a hunting rig.

    I was close check out the website now they have a light weight 28 nosler and 300 win mag for $4400. That leave you a lot for a scope.

    Ryan Pierce at Piercision Rifles would definitely be who my first choice would be. I love his self timing brakes as well, have 2 of them already.

    Well they sure are proud of their rifles? But I think you can find a much better deal!
    Take your time and shop.. read reviews.. do your homework..
    Haste makes waste... I have always thought they were too self promoting anyway....
    Here's a nice action I have the SS one..

    Let me recommend this builder Dallas Lane at Lane Precision Rifles. He will save you some money and has the golden touch when it comes to 30 cals.

    With gunwerks I’m sure you get a fine shooting rifle and with their package rifles I do believe they have been shot and verified but the reality is you can do that yourself unless your wanting to pay someone else $2000-$4000 to do that ?

    If I was going to put 10 grand in a rifle it would be a switch barrel. Bighorn or impact action with shouldered barrels would be a awesome setup.
