That's spot on what I'm looking for, weight is perfect! I'll be using a slightly lighter stock, 3b barrel finished at 24 with fluting, and either a Nightforce or Burris optic both of which are around 30-32oz

You don't need a 24" plus his is a #3 not a 3b. You're going to build s toad of a gun for no gain other than having a heavier than necessary toad.

Every gunsmith including your recommendation said to use the 3b and keep it at 24. This is why I buy them already built, lol
