As I explained in a past topic, Im building a rifle off a Remington 700 action. The purpose of the rifle is simple, I need a general purpose rifle I can use for long range shooting, and a general big game rifle (which could handle both mule deer and elk (and yes, I understand a .30-06 would've been a better choice, but I didn't have choice when I bought the rifle)).



This the Remington 700 ADL I got for cheap becase the original owner was a felon. Basically my work so far has been turning this ADL into a BDL. And thanks to Mel, I got BDL floorplate and and some other parts from Brownells.

Its finally a BDL.



My next step is to send it off to Harts Barrels to have it rebarreled with a 24 inch #7 fluted target barrel. From there then get a HS Precesion tactical stock (I was thinking about the one on the 700P except get it with the adjustible cheeck piece and adjustible length of pull). But those are a long ways off, I need to get the money first.

BTW: The rifle's name is Canyonero (If you don't get it, watch the Simpsons).

Yeah man, I'd like to see how your rifle turns out! From the sound of what you're using it'll be great.

Sorry, but I didn't see the old topic and I'm lazy this afternoon lol. Is it in 308? If so, its still a fine choice for deer and elk.

The rifle will be in .300 Win Mag.

Due to painful lack of current funds, updates will be slow and painful.

And I chose the name Cayonero because its (to qoute the lyrics of the commericial) 12 Yards Long, 2 Lanes Wide, and 35 Tons of American Pride!

Good to see another CDA member on here. I figured there must be others around. Perhaps you can give me some good tips on places to shoot and places to shop?

I'm hoping I will be able to do so--just to watch and learn. It'll depend on the final date, though.

Oh, and to stay on topic, I do like the name. I think it's unusual but also quite appropriate. Robust and all about attitude--taking names.

OO

Right now I actually do have somewhat of a plan for the optics. If Im patient I may go ahead and save up some more money and become a super miser then I can buy a Leupold 10x40 Mark 4 LR/T with some Badger Ordnance base and rings. However the plan for now is to a Super Sniper from SWFA and TPS rings and base.
