Re: Building a 30.06 rifle
When you say build i take it as a custom rifle. Most of mine are or factory rifles with modifications. It will depend on your checking account of how far you want to go. I would say you need to contact a gunsmith or custom rifle builder there are many out there and some darn good ones in Pa. I will give you the basics of a custom rifle and opinions will vary but here is my preference.
Action of choice : i use a rem 700 most of time and have it blueprinted by a smith . Its put in a lathe and receiver is squared along with the lugs on the bolt im not going in to many details of step by step but all of this is done so barrel fits perfectly square along with the recoil lug ground. Custom actions are availble that everyrhing is done priced anywhwere feom 1k- $1,500.00 Trigger can be worked or replaced I use Jewells.
Barrel- Stainless stell match grade there are many good barrel makers out there: Hart, shillen, Brux, Kreiger, Broughton, etc. You can choose the twist, contour, and length. Your smith will thread, fit, chamber, and crown. A good barrel is the heart of a custom rifle.
Stock- All on prefernce wood or fiberglass. Many people like a beautiful piece of wood you can have that choice. I have a local smith that has amachine he can duplicate any thing you want checkering, etc. Fiberglass i prefer many makers out there. Mcmillian, Manners, HS Prescision, etc. The stock has to fit your action of cource but should be properly bedded. This is the start of a custom rifle good luck to you.
