If you could build a dream rifle, what would it be?

Mine would be based on a Remington 40-x action, jewell trigger group set at 1.5 pounds, tactical knob on the bolt handle. This would be sitting in a McMillan A5 stock, with adjustable cheekpiece, textured grip surfaces, jet black. The barrel would be a Shilen Heavy Bull barrel, 416 stainless, 26 inches long. Chambered in match grade .308, 1in 9 twist. All steel surfaces would be matte teflon coated. Sitting on top of it would be a Nightforce 5.5-22 x 56 NXS scope NP-R1 reticle in Nightforce rings and one piece steel base. On the front of the stock would be a swivel stud for a sling, along with another stud with a Harris bipod attatched.

That would be my rifle. :gun:

Gotta think on this:

It would be Bolt action, based on the Remington 700 for starters...

308 Win
I talked to Tim this afternoon about a possible 300 Win Mag Elk Gun..Some guides have a 30 cal minimun rule on elk

Super nice guy...

5 month wait on a McMillian adj stock

Major coinage though...Total package with a Nightforce scope was gonna be in the range of 6K..Hard for me to justify maybe...

fluted barrels are "2 shooters"...due to heat...they loose accuracy after that and need to cool..but probably not enough to matter..The heavy barrel rifles weigh in at 15 lbs...To heavy to hump with stalking an elk at 10000 feet

They make a sweet looking 7mm Ultra Mag as well. Tim said it would flatten an elk at 700 yards

ftbisley...you must be loaded dude

Hopefully Tim will join our forum and share a few other insights to the rifles they build at Bills Custom Automatics

Na...If I ever get a 50 it will be a Barrett


Gotta go pick some deer meat to process...a 9 pt bit the dust at dark
Did not get any pics...Stonepony on here did the evil deed with the arrow...I'm just the beneficiary of the meat :thumbup:

Yeah Tim and I talked about the Robertson stocks..

Those Night force scopes at 2K hurt...a surgeon action alone was $1200

I'm probably gonna just throw down for a box stock Remington 700 CDL in stainless flutted in 257 Weatherby...This caliber was suppose to be Weatherby's favorite elk rd.

No I don't have a rem action yet...and Tim said that by the time you had a Rem 700 action blueprinted it would be more than just buying the surgeon to begin with.

I'm torn between the 257 Weartherby and a 300 Win Mag (probably the best choice for elk)

Sounds like I need to get .....both :lol3:
McMillan A4 stock, custom 28 inch barrel, jewel trigger, Rem 700 action, 308 Winchester tac-ti-cool....NF 5.5-22x56 scope 20 MOA bases

being built

Having a savage 111 30'06 converted to 35 Whelen....custom stock,barrel all the goodies in the works...its gonna be a beast

then there's the 22-250 Savage to get decked out for prairie dog hunting...

Oh lets see...what else :eyeroll: dreams subject to change :idk:
