Without telling why, I am going the custom route. I am looking for a reputable gunsmith to put the puzzle together for me that's not going to highway rob my south end.

If anyone knows of a good smith to handle this for me I would appreciate it much.
 
Thanks a million,
RiP

What kind of rifle are you wanting built and/or what kind of work do you want done?  That has everything to do with which gunsmith to recommend.

Tactical rifle in .308 possibly .300

I had a M40A3 and it was quite nice. Better than my used up M24 at work. I sold my M40A3 quite a while back but are really stable now and I have a few $'s to spend.
 
This is sort of what I have in mind as a list of what I would like to see for next rifle build.

Stock: Manners T4
Barrel: Rock, Krieger, Lija, Broughten plenty to list
Action: Stiller Precision TAC300 w/ R700 3 point safety shroud
Trigger: Timney R700 Tactical Trigger
Trigger Guard: Badger ordnance M5
Rings: Badger Ordnance
Scope Rail: Badger Ordnance
Scope: Premier Reticle's Heritage 5-25x50 paid for awaiting order
Sling: Turder Sadelry national match AWS

I am open to sudgestion on everything except the scope and stock.
Thanks a lot,
RiP

Manners has a new chassis system, quite nice, better lockup than my old M5 bottom metal.

Where are you located?  I have a great smith in Houston, he has never let me down.
