Gunsmith I use build couple for some of his customers wanting short yardage timber rifles for elk. We talked about it at the time I was having 35 WhelenAI build and he had Rem 700 short action for a future build for me. I tried to talk myself into building one as late Dec Cow tag rifle but after I got the Whelen that fit my needs better.
Sounds like got rifle that fit your needs.
