    Tossup between a recreation of a Holland and Holland best quality 8-bore muzzleloading double rifle and a recreation of an original Hawken. The Hawken would be "on the cheap" depending on builder and materials, somewhere between $5k and $10k. Why's that cheap? Because the 8-bore double could top $20k.

    Default Brevex and Kurz

    I would buy a hard to find Brevex magnum mauser action and a small ring Kurz action and go from there.

    If money was no problem I suspect that building a rifle would not be as much fun. Presently, money is a real issue. For me to undertake a new rifle I must be convinced I "need" this rifle and there is not a suitable available factory substitute. If I did not have to give any thought to this I am not certain I would appreciate a rifle build in the same way. Of course I would own the finest rifles money can buy, but I am not certain that my passion/respect for rifles would not decline.

    But since you ask, it would no doubt be a bespoke H&H "Royal." Now the real question is if I could truly afford the rifle. That is afford it in such a way I could buy what I want when I want or if it is a one time gift by a wealthy benefactor. If money is no object and I can build any and as many rifles as I want, then my dream rifle would be in 700 H&H. This however is not an entirely practical rifle. If this is a one time deal I would choose a "Royal" in 500/465 H&H. It weighs only half as much and is about as ideal a hunting DGR as I can imagine.

    I like how you think, but I'd go with the 500/465NE. I suppose I'd throw in a Westley Richards drop lock in .476NE and a Purdey 12 bore while I'm at it!!!!!!

    I can get you into a Luxus grade one for as little as $45,000, in calibers 243/308/30-06/9.3x62/300 Win/375/416....

    The one pictured was given to the Sheek for free...he paid for the tooling

    Pre-64 model 70 action for the foundation. This would be trued, tuned, slicked up so that it would practically operate by itself. The barrel would be from one of the great aftermarket makers in either 24 or 25 inch length. It would not be too heavy nor too light, but just right. Caliber would be 280AI, just because I have never had one, and always wanted one. Stock would be synthetic, McMillan, shaped like the wood versions on the factory Sako AV’s. Those fit me soooo nice. Finish would be CeraKote in at least two colors since money is no object. This rifle seems so apple pie USA, I would have to top it with domestic glass, likely Leupold top of the line.

    Now that the juices are flowing, I have always dreamed of a Dakota rifle. Hmmm… start with a Dakota action, fluted barrel worthy of the cause chambered in 338 Lapua of adequate length. I’d hire me a wood hound to sniff out a piece of crotch wood that would be so dark and dense it can’t hardly be called wood. Then he would find someone who has made shaping such wood into rifle stocks a life’s work and this project could finalize their retirement fund because when they finish with the stock it would look and feel so amazing, it would be “priceless”. This one would be topped with the absolute finest optic, likely Swaro or S&B.

    Surgeon Scalpel 338 Lapua action, mated to a 28" Krieger Barrel, Bedded into a Mcmillan A5 stock in GAP camo of course. I would stick with Nightforce NXS 5.5-22X56 for the scope because I like the MOA turrets and the NP-R1 reticle. Yup, that just about covers it.

    If money were no object..... because I would be too afraid of taking it to the woods unless I could afford to take it in the woods. I guess I would have to have a Doug Turnbull upgraded Winchester 1886 take down in 50-110
