    cycloneshooter,

    I have a factory Sako that will shoot under a half-inch all day long. I had a friend who has since ascended to Heaven. He had many custom rifles. He told me that not a one would out-shoot my Sako. The only things I have had done to my Sako is bed the action and trigger work.

    I was all set to customize a 700 action. After I researched it, I found that due to computer aided manufacture, many factory rifles are capable of accuracy that meet or exceeds custom guns.

    Were I to buy another rifle, which I don't need, I'd buy a Sako AV action .270 Win. If I didn't have loading stuff for a .270 Win, I'd go .280 Rem. IMHO and from my experience, it seems that .284 projectiles hold an inherent accuracy edge over other hunting calibers.

    Anyway, if you're dead set on going custom route, I wish you the best. My suggestion is to look for a used Sako AV and modify it as you wish. For that matter, any factory rifle that has an accuracy track record.

    Remington rifles deserve a look. The second most accurate rifle I have evef fired was a 700 ADL that belonged to another friend who is also in Heaven. His rifle was stock. He didn't have a thing done to it. And the way it shot, he didn't need to do a thing to it. From what I've read, Savage rifles are incredibly accurate right off the shelf as well. Maybe you can save money that can go towards a hunting adventure.

    Thanks guys for all the great information.

    I think I am pretty well convinced to stick with my W70 action and the 284 Winchester cartridge.
    Espeically after reading this thread... http://www.6mmbr.com/gunweek095.html

    I attached a couple pictures of my action. I believe the magazine box is about 2.860" long.

    I used "Precision Barrel Works" out of Texas. He did me a fine job. I went with a .270 WSM, Hart Barrel, Browning A-Bolt Medalion Action and a custom laminate stock.

    I am also sure that the gunsmiths mentioned above are all fine too. Just do your research and ask good questions when you contact the smith.

    Look no further! Cloud Peak Gunworks www.cloudpeakgunworks.com

    I own three CPG rifles and I've lost count how many my dad has. They're all great shooters and have piled up tons of game for us from 100 to 1,000 yards.

    www.shoot-long.com I have 2 custom rifles build by him and attention to detail and very personal customer service are top notch. the turn around time is crazy fast too. the last Rifle I sent to him I sent all the parts and told him I needed it asap he had it together in about a week.. its possible because he doesnt take on more orders than he has time for. Highly recommend!
