Well here I go . I decided to build 2 semi custom rifles on vanguard actions.
.257 and 28 nosler.

I went with OMR prefit barrels
257 is a 1-8 twist 24 inch
28 nosler is 1-8 twist 26 inch

McMillan stocks

action and barrels are at the gunsmith now. I will keep this updated as I make progress.

It was quoted at 8 weeks, but took 16.... I will be selling my factory 257 barrel that I had threaded and a break installed.

actions and barrels are done. Off to get fitted and bedding done. 3-4 weeks and I should have them back.
Hope to get them done in time for season. I have a bull elk desperation tag that I plan on hunting early September (runs august 1-September 30th)

but most of all..... I have a desert bighorn tag that opens November 20th. Planning to set cameras this Saturday!! Should be a fun season.

Well a little set back. Every thing got lost and then found. They were missing for 10 days, but showed up today at the smith to have bedding done and final fit in the stocks, only set me back 3 weeks.
