    Yeah mine will have a 223, 22 Creed, 25 SST, 6mm Creed, and a 6.5 creed. I will have 2 stocks. An EH-1 and a smaller style stock for my short barrels and light barrels. I am doing a second switch. I think it will be on an SR3 big horn with the Wyatts cut for the longer coal. I will have a 28 Nosler, 280 AI, 30-06 and if I can make an 338 edge work I will. I already have a lot of these cartridges on Savage setups so already all set up to shoot. I am sure it will change a bit though. Waiting for the wife to finish doctor school so she can foot the bill lol.

    Very cool
    That’s the dream right there.

    I’m also very interested in a long action magnum build. A 28 Nosler/338 Norma improved would fit well in the safe. We will see, hoping to not start another build before filling out this one.

    After seeing this build I sold my custom 300 NM and have 6.5 SAUM build in the works. Did a Vector with a 7.5 twist proof carbon, KRG Bravo chassis. Should be fairly light for hunting 20190406_171737.jpg 20190406_172055.jpg

    That’s awesome! Glad to be a good influence.

    Had I been more experienced in reloading I likely would have done a SAUM, as it is I’m enjoying the PRC and using it to learn to load on. Keep me updated on yours! Awesome actions, running the bolt is addicting.

    Will do, my barrel is at my buddies being spun up now. I love how smooth the Vector runs! I have both .308 and mag bolts for it. Going to get a MPA chassis and a 6 Creed barrel for matches. The ease of swapping barrels and a bolt sold me

    @jmcmath how do you like the Curtis actions? I'm going to build a 25 creedmoor/7mm ss switch barrel on a bravo stock. Was entertaining the idea of a bighorn origin or Curtis axiom. I know the axion is a step down from vector, but other than machined on rail and lug, they're very similar.

    Love it, would do the Curtis again every day of the week if I had to build the rifle over again. The manners is the only thing on the build I’m not in love with.

    It’s pretty likely my long action will be on a Helix whenever it happens. They feel great, they run great and I can call/text the owners if I have an issue or question. Customer service is nuts. Longest I’ve waited on a callback from Joel was a whopping 15 minutes.

    Edit* As many have likely seen now Joel Russo is no longer affiliated with CC. I feel it necessary to state that all of my communication and business was conducted through Joel. This is not to say that CS would not be good without Joel, as I have none to speak of. It is important to me that I note that none of my CS comments are applicable without Joel being present.
