what parts would you buy? These must be parts that are somewhat available right now.

Caliber is 6.5 Creedmoor,
Action: Brand, bolt face, action length, etc
Barrel: rifle MUST to come in at 8lbs without optic, #3 contour??
Trigger:?
Stock: glass or carbon fiber, no chassis
Bottom Metal: ?
Brake:?
Builder:?

Ok. It's my next build. Remember as you list your choices, This rifle will probably be for sale in a year or two, so choose wisely you may get it for a deal.....

No Budget set, within reason $4 - 5K

No Tikka parts whatsoever

The reason I'm asking is I'm not an expert, while looking at actions, I like Surgeon, Deviant, Stiller, Borden, Bighorn. Not sure what bolt face, for Creedmoor, .308??

Stock may be sent to Dallas Airbrush confused2

Buzzsaw, I'm going through this right now. After talking to a few from this forum, and talking to Chad for over an hour today, I have decided to go with the 6.5Creedmor. There were other caliber that peaked my interest, but availability of brass and cost of reloading with zero factory ammo available, I decided on the 6.5Creedmor.

Here is my run down:
Chase Curis Action, short action
Manner MCS-EH1 stock, carbon fiber
Bartlein 24 inch Sendero/heavy varmint
Seeking bottom metal, AI mag
Timney Teigger, 2lbs
Builder hasn't been decided, brake hasn't been decided.

Weight should come in around 8-8.5 and around 10 with optics

All I have to do is send my rifle to derrick at some point and have a benchmark barrel put on it, and get my timney.

His bottom metal has me intrigued with the design of the mag release

if only I could find a titanium action for the 408 cheytac case, then it would be chambered in 338 AM or 338 Snipetac

No idea really. It's the one derrick uses as his in house barrel I believe.

I did see a little special during a hunting show where they showed how they are made, all hand fitted, hand rifled, every single barrel is repeatedly checked before it leaves the factory. I'm sure lots of places do you this, but I was impressed.
