Think you'll enjoy building such a rifle - I really did! Took me several years. In the process I met a retired GS - He and I planned the build together. He let me help with the metal work. The objective was to put together a good basic African plains game rifle. So...We pick the 9,3x62 cartridge and that simple 4X scope with a duplex. I did the stock work, the bedding and together we specially refit that front sling swivel.
What we produced was a great 200 yd plains game rifle. But I'm find myself more and more picking it for most every hunt that doesn't involve a beanfield, a highline or a varmit.
PS: Don't wait too long and PM me if I can be any help.
