I posted back a while ago about an itch to build a .280 Rem, and now im pulling the trigger. Here's what ive decided on after countless hours of research. blue printed 700 LA Bartlien# 3 5R 1:9 26" HS sporter stock Jewell trigger (1.5-2 ish) NF base and rings Leupold MK4 4.5-14x50 IR Hoping to shoot the 160 AB's. This is going to be my short to mid range hunting rifle. (600-700 max) Trying to keep it light, but capable. yes, I'll post when complete.
