How do you build a sniper scope?

Unless you're an optician, you can't. The US military has standardized on Leupold scopes for its snipers, so if you want a sniper scope, go to a good gun store and buy the Leupold scope you like best. Then, go to a gunsmith familiar with high-accuracy rifles with your bolt-action rifle (Remington Model 700 is a very good gun and .308 is the caliber I would choose) and have all these things done to it: fit the stock to you, glass-bed the stock (this makes the stock fit against the barrel nicely and cuts down on vibration), polish the bolt, have the headspace adjusted, then mount the scope. And THEN buy about twenty boxes of match-grade ammo and learn how to shoot. The scope is just part of what makes a rifle a sniper rifle; it's a system including the rifle, optics, ammunition and shooter.
