Well, long story short, I put together a new Remington 700 build from various parts I had laying around. A good buddy of mine had his take off 308 Win, Bartlein match barrel from his competition rifle with about 500 rounds down it. He wanted to sell it and he made me a super deal I couldn't pass up ($100). It came already chambered in 308 Win, with Tubb brake installed, and ready to screw onto a Rem 700. So, I needed a Rem 700 action. I bought a cheap Rem 700 ADL (see pics below) for $360. I had my gunsmith take off the factory barrel on the new Rem 700 ADL, screw this 308 Win match barrel on it (confirm head space) and tune the trigger up. He also threaded the bolt and installed a larger bolt knob, from the many bolt knobs we pick up on the prize tables at shooting matches. I had my old Manners T4 stock from my Surgeon rifle with Badger bottom metal laying in the garage. The new Rem 700 action fit almost perfect in the bedded Manners. I have my Nightforce shop scope I use for customer rifles for load work up to put on it. I bought a Seekins 20 moa rail and installed the scope.

I took it out to the range on Friday shooting my standard 308 load, match ammo I loaded with some 168 BTHP Hornady bullets. After sighting in and walking it out to 800, I started shooting some smaller steel plates. I tagged the 1 moa plate at 600 yards (6" plate) 5 times in a row with it. If you don't count the cost of the parts I had laying around, this was the CHEAPEST rifle I have ever built. This will be my go-to 308 now. I'll call it the "PBR" for "parts build rifle", and with a hint of a beer innuendo!
