Precision and reliability are two characteristics that should define any firearm. When considering a rifle, whether it's for hunting, sport shooting, or any other purpose, every component must be carefully considered for its functionality, reliability, and contribution to overall performance. In this article, we will examine a custom-built rifle equipped with some of the best components available in the firearm industry, including a Proof Research carbon fiber 300 Winchester Magnum (WM) 24” barrel, a Kudu Arms action, a Trigger Tech 2 lbs trigger, an Atlas BT46-LW17 Bipod, an Accushot BT-12 monopod, a Woox Exactus precision stock, and an Athlon Optics Ares ETR 4.5-30x56 optic.
The Barrel: Proof Research Carbon Fiber 300WM 24” Barrel
A rifle's barrel is one of its most critical components, influencing the accuracy, reliability, and overall performance of the firearm. This custom rifle incorporates the Proof Research Carbon Fiber 300WM 24” barrel, renowned for its remarkable lightness and durability. The use of carbon fiber reduces the barrel's weight without sacrificing strength or accuracy. The barrel is designed to accommodate the powerful 300 Winchester Magnum, which provides exceptional stopping power and accuracy at long distances, making it ideal for a range of applications, from hunting to long-range shooting.
The PROOF Research Carbon Fiber Barrel, designed for the 300 Win Mag cartridge, perfectly combines top-tier materials and precision engineering. Its Sendero contour and 24-inch length optimize balance and accuracy, while the 1:10" twist rate ensures bullet stability. Made from carbon fiber for superior strength and heat management, it features a 1.2-inch shank diameter for robust action connection, offering exceptional durability and precision.
The stock: WOOX exactus stock
WOOX's Exactus is a precision-oriented tactical stock designed for ultra-accurate long-range shooting up to 1,000 yards. Crafted with a durable forged aluminum monoblock chassis and precision-cut contact points of American walnut, the Exactus balances robustness and elegance. It's designed for easy drop-in installation, featuring an ambidextrous grip and constructed from hard-anodized AA 7075 aircraft-grade aluminum. The stock offers an adjustable length of pull (13.5” - 14”), weighs 4.1 pounds, and can accommodate a floating barrel diameter of 1.17". Available in Walnut, Midnight Grey, and FDE colors, the Exactus is a blend of craftsmanship, versatility, and precision
The burnt bronze cerakote finish doesn't just add aesthetic value; it's color-matched to the optic, ensuring a seamless look that stands out in any shooting environment.
The Action: Kudu Arms (Remington 700 Long Action)
The action is the heart of any rifle, dictating how the firearm loads, fires, and ejects shells. This custom build uses the Kudu Arms action, based on the legendary Remington 700 Long action. The Remington 700 action has long been the standard for precision rifles due to its reliable operation, ease of use, and adaptability to various calibers. Kudu Arms further refines this design, enhancing its precision and reliability, creating an action perfect for a high-performance custom rifle.
Kudu Arms is the true merge of new and old school within the bolt action firearms sector. Combining high end long range tech with an old school style.

It features an eye relief of 3.9", a field of view at 100 yards ranging from 24.5 to 3.75 feet, and parallax adjustment starting from 25 yards.

With a length of 15.3" and a weight of 36.5 ounces, the product strikes an impressive balance between size and functionality.
The Trigger: Trigger Tech 2 lbs
A trigger's quality can drastically affect a shooter's accuracy, and this build features one of the best. The Trigger Tech 2 lbs is a well-regarded component, known for its crisp break and minimal overtravel. With a pull weight of just 2 pounds, this trigger allows for a light, precise pull, enhancing the shooter's control over the firearm.
The Bipod: Atlas BT46-LW17
Stability is a fundamental part of accurate shooting, and the Atlas BT46-LW17 Bipod provides it in spades. This bipod is highly adjustable, allowing for perfect stability on a variety of terrains. The cant and pan features make it versatile, ensuring a steady shot no matter the ground conditions.
The Monopod: Accushot BT-12
To complement the Atlas Bipod, this rifle also features an Accushot BT-12 Monopod. This provides additional stability and allows for fine-tuned elevation adjustments, enhancing the overall shooting accuracy, particularly in prone and bench shooting scenarios.
