For the price of many factory rifles today you are getting a high quality rifle that will last for years and while many don't look good they function great. Every manufacture has some draw backs and pluses as well. Find the one that you like fits your budget and buy it and don't listen to all the keyboard commandos.

I have seen guys get budget rifles that were printing amazing groups. Sub 1/2" 200 yard groups. Then I have seen guys get $1000 rifles that couldn't hit the side of a barn from the inside.
I built my last custom (6.5 Creedmoor) in less than an hour on my workbench in my shop,and it shoots fantastic. Oh,but it is one of those ugly Savage's,well the action is!





Now if the idiot pulling the trigger wouldn't screw up on the last shot!!

I hunt with a Winchester model 70 and my father uses a Remmy 700 both in. 243... to make a long story short a couple of hang fires from his 700 and he has been borrowing my rifle since... we have been able to milk some impressive accuracy from mine without any real work too... both are well reputed but for my money I simply prefer the Winchester...

Beat me to it. - I would take the Savage as they have kept the quality up, and Remington hasn't.

That is not a custom gun. It is an aftermarket barrel screwed on to a factory action.

I like using Stolle actions. They are hand crafted with care. They have 2 oz triggers and stocks fitted to my specific measurements. With custom paint. I also have my smith make a set of dies specific to each rifle. I don't understand why I am a bad person because I like something different than most people? It is getting a little tedious here.

it didn't come from the factory like that. what is your definition of a custom rifle? every part built from scratch?

IMO, even screwing a non-factory barrel on a factory action is still a custom rifle, a mild custom, but still a custom rifle.

I'm not upset. I just don't like the attitudes of many here because again I like what I like. I can afford to spend $4k building a 1k yard varmint rifle. Then top it with a $2500 scope.

Like I said a custom gun is one I sit down with my smith for an hour or two and we hash out what exactly I want it to do. What parts I want to use or what my smith says will work better. We go through everything even the dimensions of the chamber and how I want my dies cut.

Replacing a barrel on a gun is just that rebarreling it. It doesn't make it custom.

I like my stocks cut to a specific length or pull. I change barrel taper and length for specific uses. I don't always use the same trigger either. Everything is built to the purpose intended for that rifle.

If you take a remington 700 action and blue print it add a new barrel, new stock, new trigger. That is still just a semicustom because you are using a factory action.
