    Second rifle is also built on a Savage action.

    28" Shilen Match Select barrel chambered in .308 10 twist

    SSS LVT laminate stock sanded and clearcoated by me

    Vortex Viper 6.5x20x44 scope on Ferrel 20 MOA base with burris rings and mounts

    The .308 is a regular visitor to groups under .350", and has shot a couple of 1/2 moa groups @600

    I fully expect the .223 to be at least as accurate if not little better due to higher BC bullets

    wow, I was really surprised by the extremely bright cedar looking color and then the darker grey black wood laminate mix. what woods' are those by the way?

    those are both gorgeous weapons. where did you come about the knowledge and experience to put your own stuff together like this?

    and any particular reason why your using savage actions?

    never met a .308 yet that did not LOVE Varget and SMK's, and that is exclusively what I load for this one

    I really have not a clue what wood it is, although it looks and smells like birch. Not much knowedge involved with building these. Savages headspace off the barrel nut, so if you have a set of gages and a barrel wrench you are in business. Bedding and installing pillars is not high tech either. I will admit I was terrified to pull the trigger on the first one I built though!

    I selected Savage due to the fact that they will outshoot any factory gun, and a lot of customs right out of the box new. Do a few mods to a Savage and it becomes somewaht legendary.
