4. Custom hunting rifle components
You’ll find hunting rifles at a variety of price points, which is good news. However, it’s essential to know what sets the good-but-affordable rifles apart from the just-plain-cheap rifles. You can avoid a bad investment by choosing the right barrel and stock materials.
Most hunting rifles feature either stainless steel or carbon steel for the barrel and other metal components. All IN-RUT Rifles use stainless steel barrels as it’s more prone to rust than stainless steel. If you keep up on regular rifle maintenance, this shouldn’t be a deal breaker. When it comes to choosing stock for your custom rifle, you’ll likely be able to choose from wood or fiberglass. Both are good choices so long as they’re well maintained. At IN-RUT, we choose fiberglass as it is a lighter option, and when lugging around a rifle 5 miles in the backcountry, every ounce counts. When it comes to wood, it’s also important that you choose a good species.

5. Budget for rifle optics
Many a hunter has fallen into the trap of buying a great rifle and then having no money left for a rifle scope. Think ahead and budget for your optics so that you’re not stuck with a rifle you can’t use. In terms of budgeting, you can plan to spend between 50 and 100 percent of what you spent on your rifle on a scope. If you already have a suitable scope, remember to mount it, site it and get comfortable with it before you head out to hunt.
