Remington 700 custom Bruce Dow vs. Patriot Arms (APA) help
#1
I'm in the market for a freakishly accurate rifle. Up here in Perry County there is a 1000 yard club I'd like to shoot with.

I have been looking at custom rigs by various makers. I have a line on a Patriot Arms that the seller claims to have produced a .19 group and consistently shoots in the .2s. Chambered in .300 Win Mag.

I have found a lot of info on the Patriot Arms/APA rifles and guys rave about them. A few of the things it doesn't have that the Dow rifle has are a DBM, larger bolt knob and adjustable stock.

There is also a Bruce Dow custom build I'm looking at. It has a 4 shot 1/2" group to its credit. It hasn't been fired as much and I don't know the skill of the shooter. Chambered in .300 RUM. Comes with dies, brass and 120 cartridges.

What I have found on Bruce Dow is that he's also an exceptional smith with an engineering degree. It appears his concentration has been service rifle builds.

Both rifles have had all of the serious custom work done to them with the trued actions, custom barrels, bedded etc.

I'm trying to find out if anyone has any experience with a Bruce Dow built rifle. Also, any long range shooters with wisdom about any of it, please chime in.

Thanks, I actually was lurking there and learned they all love the Patriot Arms/APA. I ended up buying it, sent the money today. I'll post some pics of the very tiny groups I expect to shoot with it.
