    I like it. It looks sharp. Tell us more....

    Where did you find the stock?

    What scope is that?

    How does it shoot?

    Nice gun! Let us know how it shoots. I recently finished a Savage 260 build myself. 10PC action+stock, Pac-Nor supermatch barrel, some small goodies from Savage Shooters Supply and a Bushnell 4200 6-24 tactical scope. Not as low budget as yours but everything I wanted except for some really good glass. It ran about a grand not including the scope I already had. That Bushnell gets a little hazy over 20 power. I'm saving for a Nightforce but budget and Nightforce probably don't belong in the same post! 6 shot groups fired at 110 yards off the hood of my truck measured center to center. The first measures .800", remove my flier and it's .440". The second measured .675". Next project build is a 338-06 for elk hunting.

    i found the stock at L&L guns in battleground. it was sitting with a bunch of wood stocks in a corner. the scope is a Nikon buck master 4.5x14. i put the 1/4 moa turrets for a monarch on it. no modding to the scope, they fit good. i still want to bed it then we shoot. maybe after hunting season.

    How much was the scope? Not in the 596.00 price?

    I know it is nice to build one for cheap. I went that rout but spent about 700 to 800 and ended up with a nice SPS.

    where did you score the barrel for $50? I am imagining that it was used.

    plans for the scout will include lots of SSS parts, like the competition trigger, recoil lug, the 10 round detachable clip. new barrel (338-06):paranoid:, timed and trued, tac bolt handle, and the Burris Scout Scope 2.75X. thinking:huh:.....?

    Mostly finished my 338-06. I started with a stainless long action and added an Adams & Bennet 338-06 barrel cut down to 20.5". It also has a SSS recoil lug and one of their tactical bolt handles. Then I had the whole thing Duracoated semi-gloss black. Finally, I modified an olive and black spider web Bell & Carlson Medalist stock with the aluminum skeleton to fit the accutrigger center feed action. It relatively short and makes a sweet handling gun for hunting in the coast range where it's usually pretty brushy. My only complaint would be the Decelerator recoil pad is nowhere near as good as the Savage marshmallow pad from the factory plastic stock. It shoots pretty nice with that aluminum bedding, averaging around .7" for 3 shots, shoots even better on occasion.

    It's a long action. It has to be to fit 338-06. If you want a 338 for your short action look into 338 Federal. I did and didn't like the low velocity from a 20" barrel with a 210gr bullet. I checked Hodgdon's and Barnes websites and decided a 338-06 is a better fit for what I wanted to do. Put a longer barrel on a 338 Fed and it's okay but the 20 inchers I use for prowling the coast range jungle really cut the velocity.

    Find what? If you want a 338 Fed barrel I have a short one I'd sell. PM me if interested in details. Look at MidwayUSA.com, they have alot of Adams & Bennet barrels for a good price.

    It was around $225. You may have to modify it to fit your gun. I used it on a Accutriger centerfeed action and had to do some work to get it together.
