I may get the barrel from Brownells (they have some already made for Mauser actions in the caliber I want), or possibly a Kreiger.

I'm still in the planning phase of the build.
I'm still planning too. I've decided to go with a Weatherby action tho. Not sure who ill get my barrel from...

I do plan on going down to Choate Machine and Tool and having them build me the stock I want. I know the head gunsmith personally (grew up with his son) and he still owes me a favor. Lol

Gonna do the trigger work myself.

Question. Are you (y'all) going to the 6.5's (Grendel, Lapua, etc)for the shorter cartridge that will work in the AR platform? Question 2: If you have a strong bolt action, couldn't you load a 6.5 Swede cartridge to do everything these hybrids will do with a lot less work forming your brass etc?

I am going to do a 6.5 AR build, but right now I'm working on the bolt gun. I chose the 6.5x47mm for all that it brings to the table, plus I like that one doesn't see it often.
