Not being as well educated in the art of gun making as I would like to be, I am posing this question here. I am in the market for a new rifle. I have looked at buying a Christiansen Arms or H. S. Precision custom rifle. I am mind boggled by the options. I have talked to others about barrel length, stocks, action, length of pull, triggers. If you were able to buy a gun for $3-3500 bucks what would you consider as options and why?
Also, anyone have experience with the new .325 WSM caliber? I am undecided about caliber. I already own a .300 WSM Winchester and its awesome. Its taken a sheep and goat now. I know I definitely don't want a heavy rifle, but possibly a larger caliber for grizz/brown bears. I have considered both the .338 and .325 WSM for larger game or going totally the opposite direction in a .270 WSM for sheep.
Thanks for your insights.
