    I bought a Savage model 10PC and put an ARP 20" barrel on it in October. Haven't got to shoot it much, but the initial trials went well.

    Need some pic of your guys setups. I'm seriously looking at getting one and trying to generate the funds to build or buy a 6.8 bolt gun.

    Keep an eye on PSA for donor rifles. I bought a .223 Savage Axis during black friday sales for $249 with a $50 mail in rebate and that was the XP package with scope already mounted and bore sighted and drop box magazine.

    Pawn shops are good places also. Got a stevens 200 in 25-06 for $150. It couldn't have been any better looking. Brand new just no box..
    Also got another stevens 200 in 243 for $160 with Leupold rings and bases.
    Few weeks later got a old savage 110 long action in 243 with the bolt block for the short action round for $125.

    Default To build or not to build tis the question

    I'm not sure what to do I have the cash to do either one but not sure which to do. Should I build or should I hold out to buy a 6.8 bolt rifle?

    It is! You're absolutely right! **UPDATE** So I acquired a Savage 10 about an hour ago in .243 that I will begin this build with. I'm going to order the Barrel and new bolt head probably next week.

    Default Sorry in advance to dredge up old thread, I'm building Savage Bolt 6.8 now

    Just got all my stuff rounded up and ready to swap barrels. Already set up bolt with a PTG bolt face. Accuracy Mag Bottom Metal with their adjustable 6.8 from .308 mags . Based on a New .308 Hog hunter donor. Bell and Carlson alum. bedded stock. AR Performance Savage barrel . Will post some pics of the finished product.

    I've got the PTG bolt head ordered and I went with a McGowen 22" CM Savage sporter contour barrel.
