Thread: New rifle build (Birthday present to myself)

    New rifle build (Birthday present to myself)

    Well, Ive decided to go down to two rifles. An everyday rifle and one for Sunday best. Im going to use my tikka 7mm08 for stalking and have a 6mm for walking round the fields foxing and longer range target/plinking.
    So far Ive got:

    BAT VR, Lilja 1:8 6x47 chambered my Steve Bowers
    Wilson custom dies.
    A Jewel sat on my kitchen table waiting to be put on it.
    TET DBM which either my mate is going to use or Im going to put it on this rifle.

    Im like a dog with two tails and looking forward to get the bits together as and when I can afford them. The first thing Im going to have to do is look at the barrel contour as atm it is too heavy. Im looking at making a carry-able rifle for foxing but that is still stiff enough for some longer range target work.

    Yep, didnt like the idea of a trigger mounted safety!
    Im sure they are great on a range etc but on the field with gloves

    One thing though, Ive always used optilocks.
    What are good picatinny mounts? I like a low scope and its a 50obj Ill be putting on it.

    Very nice choice Dan. I would seriously look at some talley mounts. A large picatinny rail and rings might look out of place on a svelt sporting rifle.

    Ah well then, Third Eye Tactical. I like the rounded finish.

    go for the same size profile as the sako fluted varmint. they carry abit of weight. but nowhere nr as heavy as the barrel on my rpa

    I like the Remington Senderro Profile. I have one on my 30-06, not too heavy to carry but plenty stiff for precision work.

    Yorkie.

    Will the mediums be a close fit for a 50 objective?
