Versatility is the cornerstone of a good field rifle. Light enough to carry reasonable distances, but heavy enough to be stable, accurate, and not kick like a mule. Bill’s Custom Automatics Precision Field Rifle is pure accuracy in a highly versatile package that’s comfortable to shoot and fun to show off.
Based on the McMillan Sporter stock of your choice, we utilize a standard weight fill and a Kevlar exterior to provide extreme rigidity and moderate weight for stability. Your choice of molded in camouflage, solid colors, or even painted schemes insure your stock will be as good looking as it is usable.
BCA will build rifles on most quality custom actions such as BAT, Stiller, Defiance etc… However, our choice for custom builds is the Borden repeating action in the appropriate length for the caliber of your choosing. Borden repeaters are the perfect blend of accuracy and reliability. Borden repeaters have the incredibly precise bolt fit and machining tolerances needed for extreme accuracy but still have enough allowance engineered in to be reliable in field hunting environments. This perfect balance is paramount when extreme weather conditions are combined with the need to precisely reach a target 600 across the next valley.
Supreme accuracy requires that your action be mated to your stock rigidly and precisely. Bill’s Custom Automatics uses a Multi Laminate Pillar Bedding technique to establish the ultimate action bed. The foundation of this technique is two aluminum pillars which traverse vertically through the stock to form the vertical limiters for the action. Next the base layer of laminating compound, which has a Shore D Hardness Rating of ##, is poured in covering 75% of the pillars and permanently locking them into the stock forever. A substance with this Shore D hardness insures absolutely ZERO movement FOREVER! Finally, a special compound with 0.0% thermal expansiveness forms the final bed for the action. That level of thermal stability ensures your action remains in the exact same location as temperatures range from freezing winter to sweat dripping summer. Our Multi Laminate bedding method is the definition of “World Class”, there is no better anywhere, period.
To achieve the weight of a reasonable “field rifle”, we utilize Borden CNC machined aluminum alloy bottom metal. Borden’s proprietary alloy is one of the lightest and stiffest bottom metals in the industry. Combined with one piece steel piccatinny scope bases and a Jewel trigger, you will have a “World Class” field rifle that is as impressive to the eye as it is on the target.
