    “Custom” rifle build

    Personally for a $2,000 budget I'm not sure custom action work is really worth it. Metal work is going to eat up a big percentage of the budget, and IMO a $400-$500 stainless 700 donor action isn't that great of a value when a 7mag stainless Tikka is like $800 tops.

    Sako .264's are twisted right, should be a snazzy rifle. A hundred bucks or two is a small price to pay in the life of a rifle to have it just how you like.

    Thinking of moving back, Harley

    No appreciable amount of public land, no mountains, high fence zebra ranches, scorching hot, 30 million people, all of which are convinced it's the best thing ever...sounds great! :D If you had the coin or family ties to own a GIANT piece of land it could be cool.
