I am thinking of dropping some serious cash on a full custom rifle and wondered if anyone has much experience with a .243 like the one i want.
Basically it will be a custom action from either Surgeon or another similar action with a semi bull barrel that is heavier than a sporter but also fluted to take weight off to try and get the best of both.
Carbon fiber stock from Manners in the US to keep it light
most likely will get a 1 in 9 custom barrel to shoot 55-60gr VMAX for fox and then the option of deer at the 100gr level, these also shoot the 105gr AMAX target ammo very well for shooting at the range for some target work on the odd occasion.
This will be the ultimate do it all rifle but im not sure who will build it yet..
UK gun smiths are local but i have yet to see one as well equipped as the US custom shops, also prices in the UK for the US parts seem way higher than what i can buy from the US which more than covers the $400 import licence fee.
They also have better options for cerakote type coverings where we are still behind the curve a little bit here.
But this is all theoretical at the moment so can anyone spot any problems with my desired combination of wishes above?
