Re: New Build Idea
I've never built a rifle, other than an AR-15. I have never considered building a bolt action, but I have heard good things about both calibers you mentioned. Both are supposed to be a high powered round but "mild" enough in the recoil. I have also heard the same thing about .243 caliber.
