Id like see the 2020 build be something like the perfect truck/blind/utility rifle. The last couple builds have been long range hammers. I need a light, compact, everyday rifle. Im thinking carbon barrel 20 or less in a caliber that is short barrel friendly.

That is what I have done on the past 2 builds. A 20" 7-08 and a 20" 6.5 CM

Pretty much describes my Tier 1 from the last build. 7mm-08, 20" carbon proof barrel, topped with a lightweight Swarovski glass.

I skipped this build cause of the stocks. We didn't want.

A lot of us did that last year.....mine was 20 308. But I would be all for it again....but I would probably do a longer barrel and 280ai or PRC this time. Lol

I did the opposite, I went with a 24in 280AI last year and now I'm looking for the shorty.

Last year's version could be adapted to fit that criteria pretty well. The shorties actually had an impressive balanced feel for the ones who went that direction. Let's see where it goes this year.

I agree, last years build could go just about any direction you wanted. I should have ordered two.

I’d like to see a shorty/PRS hybrid - defiance action, mid-weight short barrel (18-22”), folding chassis (with custom camo options) and I’m envisioning .22-264 calibers for general Texas use.

Would be a really cool truck gun and compact predator rig.

Well I was finally able to get my son on some horns this weekend. Hunting in the Sonora area has been really tough this year due to all the acorns. (We are not in the anthrax area) anyway he got himself this old warrior. I havent pulled the jaw yet but I know he is post mature. Thanks again Robert and everyone at APR and yes he claims this rifle as his own now so I am really hoping im able to get in on the build off a 700 action deal.
