Franken Mauser, if you are seeing custom rifles that will not shoot good groups, you are seeing rifles built by a poor builder. Either I build my own or send them to a smith who does my match rifles. Either way the hunting rifles are going to shoot 1/2" or less, assuming its a cartridge capable of such. I dont care if its a heavy bull .22-250 or a .30-06 mountain rifle, its going to shoot 1/2 moa or its getting torn back down till I find out why.

What I meant Franken Mauser. Match grade Shillen is about $400 threaded and reamed. If I dont have the reamer, thats the way I am going. If I have the reamer, I will get out a lot cheaper than that. More than likely you can get 1/2" out of a Douglas and get out cheaper than that. I just dont trust Douglass good enough to use anymore. I have heard their quality has gone way up, but not confirmed that for myself yet.

It requires two things.

Insanity and the money to accomplish the madness.http://thefiringline.com/forums/imag...es/biggrin.gif Moreover, if you have sufficient of the first, you will find the lack of the second to be a low hurdle indeed.
