Hello everyone.
 
My name is Jim and I've been involved with firearms for 26 years now. My Dad was a seargeant in the local Constables (Game warden/Hunter safety) and because I was always arounf guns my whole life, I passed my NRA Hunter Safety course when I was 12 years old.
 
Anyway, I recently became interested in Precision Target Shooting. I am planning to build up a Remington 700 (.308) or the new Savage 12 single-shot target rifle in .308.
 
I have several small bore rifles currently (and a few bigger ones too) but nothing for precision work.
 
For practice, I am mounting a SWFA SS10X42M onto a very nice Remington 511 I have. Since the stock is mint, I want to replace it before I drill that nice stock for bipod and extend the pull etc. This way, besides the tappings for the scope rail, the gun will be able to be brought back to stock later, if I choose to do so.
 
I found one guy on eBay making replacement stocks, and I asked him if he could do one more like a target rifle style for me.
 
If anyone knows of a target stock for a 511, please let me know.
 
Thanks to everyone, and I'll be lurking!Howdy

Thanks!

 

I'm working with an instructor, so I feel that I'm in good hands.

What do you know about the NRA precision rifle competitions? Or, do you know of specific members I could chat with about that?

Thanks again.
