Currently shooting a .260 and a .338 Edge with an old Remington 721 in .30-06 sitting in the closet, begging to be rebuilt. Both current guns are in the 14+ pound range so I'm thinking of more of a carry deer/elk/sheep (hopefully!!) type gun. I don't want to go extremely lightweight as I'd still like to stay competent in the 600-800 yard range. With that in mind, I'm leaning towards .280AI for a caliber but looking for input on components. Barrel, stock, scope, etc. Would love to do this as economical as possible, but also tend to believe in the 'cry once, buy once' theme.
