    Dream build

    Managed to get enough money together with my savings (for a GA Precision Crusader) to purchase an action, stock, trigger, dies and brass to start my dream build.

    I have a barrel and wyatt's centre feed box at teh gun smiths so no photos of those bits sorry.

    Action: Defiance Deviant Hunter Medium (Rem 700 SA length) Mag boltface cheers @camo wsm
    Barrel: 24" Proof Research carbon in .284 1:8.4 twist from East Coast Arms https://sites.google.com/site/eastco...horizontal-nav
    Trigger: Trigger Tech 1-1/4 lb
    Stock: AG Composites carbon fibre 700gms

    Toyed with the idea of going 6.5 saum 4s but have the ultimate 6.5 already in the form of The Mighty 264 Win Mag so elected to go for a 7 SAUM. Will be my first ever 7mm / .284 and when I had my 300 WSM I said I would go saum next time I wanted a short mag.

    Bits are off Monday to the 'smith so we will see how it goes.

    Action weighs 900 gms, barrel 1400, trigger 100 and stock 700. Bottom metal 150 grams so about 3.2 kg without a scope...

    Are the Defiant actions worth the difference to a Stiller? eg $1.4K difference

    very nice. You wont regret going 7mm !! 284 rules !
    My model7 7mmSaum weighs in at 6lbs bare rifle in a STUG cf stock and shoots ~0.5 moa if the nut behind the bolt pays attention
    Interested in some info on the TriggerTech trigger - are they the exact same dimensions as Rem triggers ?
    The reason I ask is that the Timney trigger wont fit into my model7 & stock becos its slightly thicker.

    Got the triggertech roller in my 7mm, it's a great trigger. Have also fitted a timney Calvin to a model seven, think the stock just needed a bit of relieving

    Defiance are bloody nice...

    I have a trigger tech in my 338 and I rate them. Very nice units and very nice to adjust with the click system.

    Saved long and hard and had to get rid of some things I would rather have kept.

    7 SAUM seems to be very popular here on the forum so mist be something to this .284 business
