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.
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.
Sorry I'm a dumb@#$. The long action bell & carolson stock.

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.
