How did I not see this?
Although I personally agree with Limp on the caliber choice for Yotes...and I'm not a big fan of that stock personally....and I don't enjoy the Mosin action from an ergonomic standpoint....I really like your enthusiasm and anybody that's going to build a gun on ST gets a big thumbs up from me! I can't wait to see it finished!
What does the stock cost? I've never seen it before, but I don't do much with the Mosin stuff. What optics are you going with?
I personally have been looking into the 220 swift, 22-250AI, or 223 WSSM for a custom built Yote rifle. Those calibers are absolute screamers. I believe the 223 WSSM is currently the fastest factory loaded round out. (4000+ factory) There's load data throwing 55gr @ 4000fps and 35gr bullets at slightly over 4500fps. That's screamin.
The 17 caliber stuff intrigues me...but the 5.56 stuff is cheaper because it's a lot more popular.
I really like the 6.5mm stuff for long range....7mm stuff for deer/elk/moose...if I had the funds I would have a rifle in each...but my 30-06 kills deer just fine...so I can't justify the expense for a custom rifle to shoot deer.
