    It doesn't exist yet as I am planning a build. So far I've given serious thought to a Surgeon Action and a Benchmark barrel in .308 cal.

    I want a real good tactical style stock but nothing that folds. Any suggestions.

    McMillan? H-S Precision? Only real "absolute" is that it has to have an integral action block that will accept the Rem 700 or clone actions.

    Also looking for ideas on bottom metal. Badger Ordnance? CDI? H-S Precision? Want something that will use the AICS 10 round detachable magazine.

    Trigger: Shillen? Jewell? Other?

    Lastly, optics. So far I'm considering US Optics, Leupold, and even the Meopta ZD 6-24x56. I've been impressed by the clarity of their optics in some of their other scopes and supposedly this scope has been designed for use with the 7.62X51 NATO round.

    Not interested in the Nightforce line. Nothing wrong, just a personal choice.

    I'm interested in any and all suggestions. This will probably be the last bolt action rifle I'll build, that is if my wife's threats are to be believed:cool:

    another option for a stock would be one of the aluminum chassis' out there. they can be had for a similar price to a decked out mcmillan and don't need bedded. Mcree and XLR industries are just a couple in that price range. Also on optics there is the Vortex Razor HD
