It is true that you might spend $500, and you might take two or three years to finish your build. Those are not necessarily reasons to avoid your sporter project.

I used two years and $500 to make a wonderful .45-70 sporter from a Siamese Mauser that had been stored muzzle down in a barrel of water, ruining the barrel.

I also reload. So the first time I took my reloads and my newly finished sporter to the range and it turned in six touching holes at 100 meters, well, the time and money was worth it.

Now I'm tinkering with the loads to get .5 MOA. Not a bad goal.

Just because it's expensive and takes a long time are not good reasons alone to avoid the project. Just don't wreck a good collectible.
