    Hello - Over the years I've commissioned a few customs of the blued steel and walnut variety, never spending quite as much as you propose though (in one go).

    Things to think about with the benefit of hindsight . . . .

    Its your project, consult others, seek ideas but don't be a follower or compromise, it nearly always leads to disappointment - set you own objectives for the project and stick with them. I've been impressed with a couple of the recent build stories guys have posted up here where they have produced a really well thought through result.

    Don't be swayed or lead by current fashions or fads, nothing wrong with some of the new stuff (or old for that matter either) but a lot of what the firearms industry produces (both product and ideas) is designed to get people to spend money on the latest stuff, which is seldom much improvement on whats been done before.

    Be unique.

    Build a flintlock rifle with gold inlays and a hand carved, walnut stock.

    Then spend the rest of your budget on lead balls (you'll need plenty of practise if you're going to hit anything at 600m).

    Cheers.

    I can supply all the major US actions including Defiance & barrels, Bartlein, Krieger, Proof Research Carbon & stocks both local & imported.

    I can organise them start to finish including turn key, load developed with accuracy guarantee

    Not to mention, powder, projectiles, primers, brass, scopes etc

    I have had a few custums rifles from kiwigreg. Great pricing and top service.

    Personally i would go bigger then 7 saum. Sure you can shoot to 600y on a 708 but when that once in a lifetime stag is there and the weather isnt perfect you want a thumper.

    My current fav is a 300norma
    Defiance action
    Proof carbon barrel
    McMillan carbon fibre stock.

    Make sure you thump em and drop em on the spot. If inwas building a 7mm ir would be another 7-375r or 28nos or 7mm norma mag
