Alright since the worst part of winter is coming I should have a little extra down time for my beloved hobbies :D
So heres what Im lookin for, Im trying to build a long range precision rifle. I want ammo to be readily available (should re-loading become extinct here in CA due to Ammo Acountability Act). So Im thinking .308. I will be usuing a remmy 700 LA. I will probably be buying a whole remington 700 sps Varmint in 26" heavy barrel (see specs here http://www.remington.com/products/firearms/centerfire_rifles/model_700/m...)
Chances are I will be ditching everything but the action eventually, but I would like to be able to shoot throughout the various steps of this build. The remmy 700's are known for there out of the box accuracy anyways, often shooting sub moa, but it will get better as the build progresses.
My plan is to have it lapped and trued, then bedded in a Mcmillan A5 stock
( veiw specs here http://www.mcmfamily.com/mcmillan-stocks-tactical-stock-list.php#a5 )
I have come to trust GA precision with all my smithing needs

Now of course every long range rifle gets a bipod so Im going with the harris swivel pod lock system

As far as glass goes, I'm thinking I might just use an old S.S. I have ( the best info I could find on it since its a bit of an oldy http://www.supersniper.com/Reviews/5.htm ) Until I can save up for some nice USO glass.
Well thats the idea anyways, I was hoping you guys/gals might chime in with constructive criticism, suggestions, look out fors, you get the idea.
When I joined the site I was asked to video the build. What points of the build do you wanna see? keep in mind that GAP will be doing all the fun stuff (trueing the action and bedding the stock), I will mostly be doing the final assembly/paint. Still worth video?
The time is coming when those who kill you will think they are offering service to God.
