Default How does this sound?

Been kicking around the idea of getting a new rifle, the Remington Alaskan Ti caught my eye, buts its a little expensive for a factory rifle and nobody wants to trade one for my MRI/Sako .270.

.280 Ackley Improved
Remington stainless long action, lightened, trued, etc...
Broughton 5c #3 barrel, fluted of course.
McMillan or Manners hunter style stock.
Re-worked factory trigger.
Probably factory bottom metal also.
Then the whole thing either Cerakoted or Tefloned.

Would be a little more expensive then the Ti, but would pretty much guaranteed to be a shooter.

It will be strictly a hunting rifle, deer, elk, moose, black bear, sheep, and anything else I could ever hunt besides Grizz (the .375 H&H for that)...I would like to keep it under 8lbs scoped also...

Oh, and this is most likely a next year project.

Another one to look at is the Remington 700xcr. Less then the Alaskan Titanuim in price. A little heavier in weight but has the coating so you would not have to teflon or cerakote. As far as accurate mine has treated me well. I have it in the 270wsm. One of they days hopifully take it on a caribou hunt.

Sako? How about customizing it to what you want .Great action to start with.Just a thought since youwere thinking about trading it anyway.

I like the thought of a .280 Ackley. Good choice. One nice thing about that....factory brass is available, and you don't have to form your own as the .243 Ackley shooters do...poor devils...(for some reason, I can't drag a smiley face down here.. So..Smiley face here..)

Another possibility is the 7mm Gibbs. It will come close to the 7mm Mag with .30/'06 brass and ten grains less powder. Of course, you have to handload for it.

I thought about that, but the way the rifle is now is pretty rare and its a shooter, just a little heavy. And I bought it for a hunt last year, it did its job, now its time for something else.
