Great Gun, Great Shot Great Guy

Congrats to Dan (Dan's Custom Gun Service - LRH Sponsor). Dan lives about three hours from me and drove down yesterday to take a crack at some of our S.C. deer. Within minutes of setting up, Dan found a nice doe, ranged it at 1066 yards and one shot, one kill, DRT!! The deer didn't even take a step. The rifle was one of Dan's Custom 7-300's, shooting a 175gr LR Accubond. I can tell you the combination of Dan's rifle, that bullet and some excellent shooting on Dan's part make for a heck of a combination. We had a great session (yes, I missed!!) but it did not take away from a great afternoon. Always great to hook up with fellow LRH members.

I have said it before, I will say it again, if you are considering a build, you should talk to Dan. He has built two guns for me, one for my father and one for a friend. Dan's workmanship is top notch, he is honest as the day is long and his customer service is all you could ever ask for.

    I have been fortunate to become friends with Dan. If you are considering a custom build, you owe it to yourself to give him a call.

    Chris, It was a great time. I enjoyed the time hunting with you and your hospitality. I needed a positive in my life after this year. If it wasn't for friends like you,Joel, Jett and a special friend in NJ, Sherrie it would have been a lot worse. I will let Jett tell why Sherrie is special. I am still wondering how I made the shot. A shot at that range is pretty special. It is not like a match where you have a sight in period. You have one try. Thanks again. Dan

    Nice job! So, if I sent you a McMillan stock, Jewel trigger, hand lapped barrel, Stiller or Pierce action, you supply the 700 bottom metal, what's the charge for the build in 7-300 throated for VLD bullets, bedded in Marine Tex grey or ProBed 2000 with pillars? blast the metal the same finish too.

    Thanks!
