    Custom build ideas

    Hi guys I am looking to build a new lightweight rifle that will knock over anything nz has to offer out to say 600 meters.
    After thoughts on what calibre preferable in the 7mm class and who to build it thanks a lot team

    Maybe something like this?

    https://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co....mm-saum-39260/

    All depends on what your budget is/what you'd like to spend and if you have a preference of action eg Remington or rem clone, tikka or Sako etc and short vs long action and non belted or belted cases.

    New builds are always exciting

    If you are set on 7mm then a 7-08 or 280 would be good choices. When you say build a new rifle you need to give us budget limitations as the sky is the limit. Hugh Bradley NZ Gunmakers in Alexandra makes his own barrels and actions.

    There are heaps of options with a 7mm but something that will do what you’re asking I’d go with a 7mm Saum.

    At that budget I'd look at jumping on what @camo_wsm has, then get Hugh Bradley to sort barrel and so on for you, he's just completed 2 jobs for me, has done 4 now.

    Thats my build in the link @camo wsm put up and I'm very happy with everything and how it turned out. Dean Maisey does a bloody good job as well.

    True but if you actually wanted something you could shoot often / practise with then maybe not so much

    My model 7 in 7mm SAUM is awesome, 3.1kg scoped ready to go hunting, 162 Amax at 3,000 fps from a 22" barrel, 600 yards too easy. Holds 1000 ft lbs of energy to over 1000 yards.
