    Breakdown of my DREAM rifle (what is yours?)

    I'm crossing my fingers they come out with a 7 PRC. It would be similar to a 6.8 Western, but with a better selection of long range bullets.

    The total reliability of synthetic stocks makes my mind want to jump back to them so much, but then I see pretty walnut and behave like a bull in the rut haha

    Since I was thinking of using a Kimber for the basis of my dream rifle, could you tell me if you've had a good experience with their action and trigger?

    Thanks for your feedback! I've been really curious about them because of the accuracy most people tend to get. Then I get scared by thinking they won't be tough enough for elk...

    Do you think they would penetrate enough for elk?

    That sounds like an extremely capable rifle build! Do you have any experience with those Berger bullets on game?

    Your build sounds wonderful! I've heard a lot of mixed reviews on Kimber rifles, and I always want to like them. What happened with yours?

    You're right about my choice of wood stocks not being rational or practical. I guess that's part of the dream part of this whole exercise, it's more about having fun than being practical. I like the 2 calibers you picked as it pretty much covers anything you would hunt without much overlap.

    This is a thread I’ve wanted to start for years, because if you’re anything like me, you’re constantly building the perfect rifle for each situation in your head. Since I’m stuck inside on this rainy day, thinking about the fall, I thought I would breakdown and explain why I think I’ve created...
