"surgical bolt gun" means "terrorist rifle", IIRC.

did you buy a real Surgeon rifle???

I could easily dump $10K on a rifle with the help of that site. Now if only I had an extra $10K

I agree that the optics and custom guns can get you in very deep very quickly. Unfortunatley there are not a lot of places you can shoot long range in the northeast so I muddle by with my Remington/Leupold. I'd love to live in one of the areas where you can go out and shoot 600+ yards on public land.


If you ever visit California, on a vacation or something, even a business trip, drop me a line. I'll take you out to our Club range - we shoot at 600+ yards regularly. We have gongs out to 1200 yards.

My guess is a very nice custom tactical rifle. Probably from GAP or another reputable source. The top it off with a nice Nightforce or USO scope. Probably around 5-6k whole hog. Does that dound about right.

if it is a 1/2 MOA gun that is all you need to say. if it's a 1 MOA that's fine. repeatable 1/4 MOA under field conditions is bull crap. so you got a good gun. i am happy for you.

i just don't understand how people can justify selling someone a multi thousand dollar remington 700 by using terms like surgical.

http://www.surgeonrifles.com/

Regarded as one of the best if not the best actions to build on for a tactical sniper type rifle. Builds on the Hide get into the thousands. Everytime I go to that site, I get the urge to build a custom bolt action on a AICS stock with all the do dad in 338 Lapua Magnum. Then comes the realization of my wallet and the cost of ammo. That, and I have no place that is open to the public that shoots out to 1000+ yards that is within driving distance.

it's a tool that fires a hunk of metal that flies thru the air. gusts of wind, humidity, ambient temperature, barrel temperature and a whole lot of other factors make it less of a surgical look like a scalpel and more like a very accurate rifle. which is what it is. it's not the finger of god and you are not zeus raining down lighting bolts that can't miss.

sometimes i just get sick of the hype.

(and you guys KNOW the week after he gets his end all be all super gun it may puke it's extractor every five rounds or fail to feed and it will be a $4000 piece of crap).

i am just saying it's a tool.

The funniest part is, while it will look very tacticool, and expensive, many typical Remington 700s will shoot darn near as well. Most shooters would never know the difference.

Not knocking your rifle. I appreciate an accurate bolt gun more than most. I just see guys spend that kind of money on hunting rifles all the time, with less than spectacular results; but they are happy, as you will be. Although suppressed isn't something I see everyday. I'm jealous.

Can't wait to see pictures.

He's just right, that's all. I have a 700 classic .22-250 and a expensive trashco scope, that with handloads off a bench on a calm day will shoot 3/8" 5 shots groups more often than not. Will all my 700s do that, no, but all shoot under 1MOA consistantly.

How much more can a "custom" gun guarentee? Not going to happen.

Does that make the rifle as cool, or as good? No, but probably just as accurate; although the suppressed thing would be just a bit cooler

To be honest your comments kinda surprised me . While I'm well aware that a rifle
is just a tool. but there are tools and there are precision tools . While both might be able to get the job done in the end , some tools are just more enjoyable to use.

I understand your comment of being sick of all the hype and sometimes it can go overboard with calling everything Tactical from hats to gloves and everything else the manufactures want to attach the term to.

And I'm sure that I'm a little older and have worked just a bit longer than you.
And in my retirement which is growing near . In my opinion I have earned the right to buy my END ALL BE ALL SUPER RIFLE. piece of crap.

Thanks for posting your thought in my thread.

and to the other question here it will be built on a surgeon action.

Like with surgery and surgeons, its the hands of the shooter and the surgeon, not the gun or scapel tself, that makes it surgical. Most high quality sniper rifles shoot more accurately than the ability of their owners.

1200 yards! Damn, that'd be sweet. I think I'd need a better scope though


I recommend laying of the coffee the morning prior to going to the range, too. At those distances, every little bit helps.

So, is it one of those sub-MOA's out of the box or do you have to have someone work on it? Give us some clues as to what you're purchasing, if you don't mind. I favor the Remington 700 PSS myself. In a perfect world, I'd buy an Accuracy International, but I can't swing it right now.

I intentionally stop all caffeine consumption a few hours prior to
a shoot. It does change my marksmanship slightly. I DO recommend
hot decaf because it warms you up and keeps you from shivering.

At 1200 yards, a slight movement on the shooter end translates to yards off the target at the target end.

I'm going with a .308 , Krieger barrel , jewell trigger , and still working over the stock
choices , McMillan A5 or AI haven't decided yet. I'm going to shoot with AI stock
tuesday and get the feel of it if I like it. As for the suppressor I'm still looking
at manufactures.The only thing I have bought at this time is the action and the barrel.

Once I get the rifle finished in hand will decide on optics.

I can tell you right now that you will love the AI stock. With optics, moreso than other things, you definitely get what you pay for.

It sounds like you have money. You can't go wrong with this one

You are misunderstanding his comment

He is not impling that he will be using this gun with "surgical " precision. He means he is buying a rifle made by Surgeon , most likely their "scalpel" - $4000 without optics !model or building a gun on a surgeon action.

Thanks , I think he understood that , or maybe not .It is a Surgeon action.

I hope that the readers don't think I'm implying that I will be shooting with surgical
precision just because I'm buying this rifle. I know that this will shoot much better than I can. I just wanted a very nice bolt action rifle.

But ... you can't beat the out of the box SIG Trigger. Smoothest trigger I have ever felt. That being said, you can always have a trigger job done on the gun you choose, if the feel is not to your liking.

That site is totally evil. It made me buy a scope first and then find a rifle for it. When I was done the scope / rings base is worth twice what the rifle is . I wouldnt hesitate to do it again like this . Scope is a Schmidt and Bender PMII 3-12 . Rifle is a Tikka in 308Win
