    MNH, please post pictures when you get your stock. I'd love to see the finished product.

    Will do. It will be a few more months unfortunately, but it is a price you pay for custom inletted, hand layed carbon fiber, painted just the way you want it. Stings the pocket book too, but it will be worth it.

    Yes I will have the Vortex Razor HD 5x20x50 with the EBR-2B recital and 20 moa turrets.

    I would try to stay with a 168 gr bullet if it were me. Great BC and plenty of choices. I've killed a lot of animals with a Nos partition, though they aren't the most accurate bullet ever made, they are constructed well.

    I can't get over the looks of the SMR.....super nice. And their prices are outstanding.

    My .270wsm loves Nos Accubonds in 140 grain and the Hornady SST in 140 as well.

    Yes at 10lbs it will be a bit heavy but not like some others I have. I was really considering the Savage Long Range Hunter. It's almost 9 lbs so I felt 1 lb wasn't much to sacrifice.

    The cost difference is huge from the Savage to the SMR but for a fully custom rifle vs a high volume mass produced gun the cost for the SMR is very cheap compared to other customs.

    You did right by skipping the Savage. As much as I like Savage, there's just no telling what you would have gotten. Could be a lights out sub moa, could be a 1.5"-3" gun. It will be worth it to know exactly what yours will shoot and what its capable of. Nice scope choice, one day I need to upgrade mine to a vortex. I love my vortex binos. Keep us posted on your progress.

    MNH, I feel ya on the stock. I've wanted a McM stock for quiet some time. Just haven't been caught up enough to throw the cash at it since I built mine.

    I'll have to weigh my rifle. I'm pretty sure its in the 9lb range. I have a #4 countout hart barrel on mine sitting in a laminate stock. Its not a bad carry really.
