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:

I will second the .375 snipetac, maybe some bullets will become available one day.
I got my dream ULR rifle a year or so ago. 338AM (338/408CT) it shoots the 265gr HAT bullets at 3400fps and is a tack driver.

My next personal build will be a .50 Whisper. I have the action on order from Lawton, along with an 8 twist .50 cal barrel. I am going to stick it in a MCM A-5 with seekins bottom metal and a form 1 supressor. I have not decided on a scope. Maybe a low powered zeiss victory so I can use my night vision in front of it.
