Hey all. I'm 16 and am getting into benchrest shooting. I was going to buy a target rifle, but I've read that it is cheaper to build one yourself. I will be shooting 100 and 500 yard competitions around my area. Anyone with help/experience would be appreciated.

Logan,

Howdy Welcome to hunting nut! Hope you enjoy your stay Smile

Well I dont do competition shooting but I've read about it and it depends on what you want.

A cheap starter right might be A used M700 action, a match grade barrel and a blue print job of the reciver by a good gunsmith. Smile

There are more extensive modifications of the M700 possible such as sleeving the whole action etc. As well as specific for competition actions being built by companies. Smile

There was a older post on the debate over the Mauser Claw style rifles and the M700 Push feed style and I think its a nice post you might want to check out from another forum: www.thefiringline.com/...adid=13813

PS I guess I'm not the young'in anymore ROFL

Dimitri

Hi Logan...glad to see your interest in target sport.

Call Bob White (past president of the International Benchrest Shooters)
after you look over some of his inventory at :

SHOOTER'S CORNER

E-mail him with your interests and he'll set you up.

Regards

SHOOTIST

Logan,
What type of action do you want to use or do you have to use and if you have an action, what bolt face are you working with, small or standard?
