Hello my first post. I have been reading postings and learning about guns for about 2 years.I have 270 remington pump-308 savage lever-308 bolt husqvarna. I would like to build long range shooter. I bought 7mm rem mag it is a weatherby vanguard lightly used. I have bought a ziess 4.5x14x44 conquest it has side focus and rapid z1000 recticle.I have bought reloading gear but still need case trimmer-prep station-tumbler(cabelas has one for $75 seen it on some ad today).looking for good stock. Since my action is a howa 1500 all weatherby vanguards and howa stocks will work (sako should fit but know yet. i"m still checking on it). The trigger has been adjusted to two pounds and it feels great.(dry fired only).Gun will not be used till i restock it. Since i am a poor man (teenager in college woo hoo thank god every day) my gun will 100% used parts.I have been very picky buying parts and equipment for two years.I will blueprint and rebarrel with muzzlebrake next spring.(only new part on gun).I can"t believe this much fun is legal.I like this site the most.Good hunting every one.
