building a rifle can be done for about a grand, if you shop and don't get too caught up in WANTS over needs! and have a donor action and or stock already!

but the sky is the limit
a lot does have to do with what parts and who builds it for you,
thus using some smaller lesser known smiths that stiol make good products just don't want the fame,
and having a donor action can sure save you a LOT of money right off the bat, many smiths with high rep's cost a LOT just for there name , even before they do a single thing !

new trued rem actions can be had for about 500 bucks, a good barrel can be had for about the same, so can a stock, and many OEM triggers can be made pretty darn good saving you some extra cash!

but you can for sure go wild and run the build up to some scary price tags if you want too LOL

I have a hankering to get into long range shooting but not the funds for a custom long range rifle. I had my heart set on a Tikka T3X CTR in 6.5 Creedmoor in left hand. Two local shops said they couldn't find one anywhere. I sent an email to Beretta and found out that that rifle is not available in the US! Same as years ago when I wanted a Tikka T3 in .338 Federal! So doing some searching and checking reviews I just placed an order for a Begara B-14 HMR in 6.5 CM and left hand.
I'll likely be installing a Zeiss 4-14x scope on it because that's what I have laying around still NIB. Another thing I've been reading is to get the most out of a rifle of this "caliber" you should use match grade dies. So that will be next on the agenda.
Build an AR precision rifle. They can be made completely ambidextrous.

I am very comfortable shooting a right bolt/right port rifle left-handed.
I am also comfortable shooting it right handed too.
The B-14's usually shoot good. Kind of depends if you get the luck of the draw with the barrel, which is to be expected with a factory rig.

Bronko,
What are your goals and or aspirations for this Creed?
Competing, goofing on steel at distance, PRS type matches, hunting, or a combination of several of these things?

Like you I've shot many a RH rifle left handed and took a few deer right handed too when they snuck in on the "wrong side". As for my B-14 I got an itch to shoot at far off targets just for fun. I've been in the competition game back in the 80s and it gets to be too much like work than fun. This is strictly for my own pleasure and satisfaction. I love shooting rifles that can shoot itty bitty groups at long distances.
