SO I decided I wanted to do another build ( on a budget this time LOL ) thought I was gona do a 264 win mag but then thought about it for a bit and changed my mind to a 6.5 CM . I will list my build specs I would appreciate any helpful info as I have never built off Savage action before so it is a bit new to me I am also using this gun as my walking hunter/ long-range target shooter so I want to keep weight down to no more than 7.5 LBS. Donner rifle : Savage 116 243 with accu-trigger - would you guys use the accu-stock or should I just get the model with regular stock? I have found both used just don't know if I will need accu-stock for the extra $$ Now barrel length and contour??? I am using Benchmark again ( prefit from Benchmark) ,and was thinking either a sporter #3 non fluted or a #4 fluted and still up in the air on barrel length for this cartridge should I go 26" for extra velocity or go with 24 " will I gain much with this cartridge in a 26 " is it worth the extra weight ? Will I need a different barrel nut and lug? I will not be doing any action work to this rifle basically going to screw on a custom pipe, hydro dip the factory stock, and start shooting .
