It's got a good trigger that is a plus but personally I would ditch the stock and put it in a manners stock. Get rid of the custom turret and use the factory one. Then spend the rest on ammo shooting it like crazy.

Some people shake to much with a minimum of 8 power. A nice McMillan or manners would make it more better

And possibly adding a tactical bolt knob

Do you spot and stock or mainly shoot from a stand or rested position?

I would change the gun to a Savage, love their factory trigger, and change the stock to a McMillan A5, scope would be a Nightforce 5-25. As far as the rail goes, which ever one you like, I like EGW. And if you want a client to shoot it, at least put a brake and good recoil pad on it. That's a lot of thump

For that kind of money get a night force or go to a vx6 3-18 and save a lot of money
Get a CDs model and get the marks or knob into more of what you want

Save some money and get a timney

Save some money and get seekins rings

Add more to your stock price, look at McMillan sales section and see if you can find a deal

Save money with a different brake?
