Mike,

Looks good, but is likely a bid outside of the $2000 budget wink

I was going to be pretty close to that but go 7.5 on the brux in light palma finished at 26". As MM mentioned you want to be able to throw the 115s and I have seen 8 twist that would not do it under all temperatures or altitudes. Depending on the contour you might ask for a longer shank for setting the barrel back at about 2000 rounds. If you sweet talk Brux they will rebarrel your action for $150 (that was last year, might be to busy now).

I would go with the BC light tactical for about $200, DNZ mounts with 20-30moa of cant for $75 (damn tough to beat for a ring and base combo) and if you had the itch for a detachable magazine PTG has gotten in the game with an intro offer of $99. For glass I really like th SWFA SS 5x20 but I know that will bounce you over the budget.

Everything except the barrel and rings were bought used off of CGN.

I spent the better part of a year buying used parts here and on sniper's hide, then sent the box of stuff to Travis (TMR) at RBros Rifles:

Rem 700, 243 AI, a Rock Creek fluted 1-7.5 twist, finished at 26", Manner抯 stock, Badger bottom metal and mags. Gunkote finish, 20 MOA rail, Jewell trigger.

Made specifically to hurl 105 AMAX and 115 DTAC at the deer population.

More than a wee bit over your budget, but worth it.

6.5-06 (or yours would be 243 AI)

Remmy 700 ( Action had the works done )
Sako extractor
HS Sporter Stock, 3 color camo
Rock #5 8 twist
Break ( Smiths own design )
Remmy Bottom Metal
700 trigger ( blueprinted by smith )
All metal cerkote satin black

I supplied the bolt knob and base.

Shoots freaking lights out! That is a 500 yard target!
Smith is one of the best I've used!

Rifle as you see it (save optics) is in your budget!

PM me for details

The 6x47 is a great round but I was talking about the 6.5x47, it is a great little package with high BC bullets,fits perfect in a short action great brass and super accurate....it's on my next list smile

why 243 ackley? nothing wrong with it but 6-284 or 6.5 284 just a thought. cost would be the same. and you save fire forming process.

Already got the dies grin

So it looks like the starting point is a R700 Varmint in .243, some Redding .243AI dies, Lapua .243 brass, and a half dozen boxes of 105gr A-Max and HPBT. I'll probably throw an A5 and a Krieger on there at some point. Not sure which I'll do first, though.

Optics?
