You're looking at a very tricky piece of woodworking. Matching grain and color will be difficult, even if you're hiding the joint beneath the barrel band. You also need to be very good with a miter saw to get the two pieces to line up, it's not like you're cutting a 2x4 where the angle always comes out perfect, you have two pieces of shaped wood that you're tying to align. You probably want to use 1/8th dowels to connect the pieces, so you need a jig to drill the holes.
None of this is impossible if you have the experience and the tools (like a drill press that allows you to feed from below through the plate, and a laser guided miter saw), but I'd seriously wonder if the effort will be matched by the looks of the final piece.
I used to love being able to hit hard at 1000 yards. As I get older I find hitting a mini ram at 200 yards with the 22 oddly more satisfying.
