    I've been picking up new rifle parts for the last couple months trying to get the ultimate long range packing rifle here is what I ended up with

    Defiance defiant ultra light magnum action
    Proof research sendaro light 24"
    Trigger tech primary trigger
    Manners eh6 in molded gap camo
    Hs precision dbm
    Smr 2 port directional break
    Still deciding on color of metal
    7mm rem Mag

    Proof research recommended snowy mountain rifles here in Montana so that's what I went with for a Smith

    Looks like a good list, I have something very similar, but its the medium action and a McMillan Stock. It has 3 1 shot kills under it this year already. You'll love those components. And have heard good things about Snowy Mtn Rifles as well.

    Sounds like some very nice parts and should make a very nice rifle. Any idea on expected weight? Good luck and will look forward to seeing some pictures.

    You realize of course that the “Ultimate Long Range Packing Rifle” is a moving target! In my experience once it is built you “discover” that there is a better way to accomplish this same goal but with some slightly improved components ... it is a never ending story, but don’t dispare, it is an enjoyable trip so get aboard and enjoy the ride!

    I would guess around 7.5lbs after bedding

    Ive been using Snowy Mountain Rifles ever since Proof Research stopped doing barreled actions for me. They are building my 6.5 Saum as we speak. Greg is always friendly and very helpful with good advice and suggestions. I have not had a bad experience with them yet.

    I agree with shphtr on the moving target. I have built 4 perfect all around rifles..and each one " very good" but not perfect...I have enjoyed every build though...good luck, would love to see pics, and 7mm ReM mag is one of the best...

    Sounds like a good choice ! The only thing I would have done possibly different would have been going with a longer barrel, another 2 " I don't think would weigh me down that much more !

    To each there own I prefer 24" over 26" weight wasn't the deciding factor and muzzle velocity increase is minimum
