7.82 war bird build
 
Im going to build a 7.82 war bird and right now all i need is a good barrel for it. I am going to use a mauser action, timney 2 stage titanium trigger, and a boyd synthetic stock. Any suggestions would b helpful.

I had a lazzeroni 308 war bird with a sako m995 action. Wow what a rifle. I would of never bought such a gun. But I painted a car for a guy I worked with and he couldn't pay when it was done due to a divorce. So I traded him my labor fee for the gun and later sold it at a gun show for $2100.00 to shut who really knew what he was buying. Great gun and one hell of a long range shooter. But $5 a bullet kind of was killer for me because I don't reload. Keep us posted on the build sounds like a good build.

play the victim, be the victim

Ya i reload so thats no biggy. I already reload for 7 mm mag and 308. I reload 7mm 08 so why not go the other direction?

Im thinking of going w a kreiger 20" w 1:12 twist but i dont know. My master said my length might not be the best though. He said 21" or 22" would probably be best. Im building it for elk/speed goats.

Ok guys i have a kreiger 21 1/2" medium sporter blank on order. Now i just need some optics suggestions for giggles sake. Preferably lowish to fairly high magnification, light weight and under $800-$900

check out the vortex scopes, they seem to be getting some good reviews and their prices are not too bad either.

Got one and dont think it would take the recoil. I am building a very light(for what it is gonna be)rifle. Also its not high enough mag for what im wanting. Im thinking about getting either a busnell 4200 or nikon monarch 4-12x40 bdc or 4-16x50 mildot

i forgot about the nikon monarch, that's a great scope too. i looked at one a couple of months ago on a winchester M70 in 270, it was really nice!
