At the beginning stages of a lightweight long range build. Looking forward to sharing as the idea turns into reality!

Looking at the Pierce titanium and the Lone Peak titanium actions. Both are very good, the Lone Peak is a bit more feature rich. The barrel will be a Proof Research Sendero light profile.

The for sure components will be a Jewell trigger and a McMillan stock. Not sure if I want a hinged foreplate or a blind magazine.

Still a lot of decisions...

John you have a major LR bug going. There are a lot of worse things you could be hooked on. Cant wait to see the results. Caliber????

Ya' I am hooked along with Lungpopper and Taft. There is something about being able to point your rig at any target at any distance knowing with a high level of confidence you will hit said target with surgical precision. Yep, it has me by the family jewels.

Building a rig is as fun as shooing it. I think I will do another 30 Nosler JP. It is a cleaner with horsepower.

I think I'm going to do the opposite. Might be time for a 338...
