Help me decide how to build a T3 Sporter.
In the near future I'm going to be acquiring a T3 Sporter 24″ in 6.5×55 Sweede.
The rifle will predominantly be used for long range precision work out to about 1200m with a goal of keeping <1 moa.
I plan on having the bolt and barrel fluted for the purpose of lighter weight while still retaining stiffness, cooling, and of course looks.
Also, I will have it threaded for a break/suppressor.
I've never sent anything off for gunsmithing work and I plan to use Longrifles, Inc out of Sturgis, SD.
As of right now the plan is a Spuhr TRG mount with an undecided optic, but something in the flavor of 5-25×56 FFP h59 reticle and <$2k
I'll most likely be using Redding Competition reloading dies and undecided on a good single stage press, currently my reloading setup consists of a Hornady AP which is set up for volume, I'd like to get a single stage for more precise loading.
Are there any flaws to my plan as of yet?
Anything you guys think I should do differently?
Suggestions for a scope, gunsmith, or reloading components?
I appreciate any comments/suggestions/criticism.
