Hope this'll do

Well with the help of quite a few friends, in the last several weeks I was able to accrue all the parts for my ELR rifle AND find time to build the beast. 30" Mullerworks bbl, Stiller Chey Tac action (1.450" SS), CSR 4 port brake, Joel Russo came through in a pinch with an un-inletted A5L stock, brass and a loaner set of dies until I can procure or build my own, Jim See gave me a great deal on an ATACR scope, and I found the rest cruising online including the 6 screw NF rings, Jewel trigger (w/bottom safety), cosine indicator and bubble level. Oh, and Greg Young lent me the reamer and guage. Now I have three weeks to get it shooting and see what this thing will do before an elk hunt in CO..

I'd say that'll do...

I really like that stock, pretty sweet.

What caliber/cartridge?

338-408 chey-tac. Joel has a lot of experience w/ this cartridge and in fact talked me into this vs. a 338 Lapua AI. 300 gr match kings at 3200 is the sweet spot although it'll do a few hundred fps faster.

One of the nicest setups I've seen in a while.

Best of luck on your hunt!

Re: Hope this'll do

Last but not least, forgot to mention Ryan Pierce for getting a brake sent out to me the day after I talked with him. Oh and if you read this Ryan, the check went out last Friday

Thanks guys for the comments, I've got ammo loaded in 1 grain increments from 130-140 gr of H 50 BMG and tomorrow morning I'll find out the chrono info so I can go to 300 then 700 and see where we're at from there. Might not shoot past 1000 til I get to camp, but there's a lot of rocks out as far as you might want to shoot once I get there. If the rifle shoots as accurately as I hope, this rifle will sit at camp waiting for the elk to show themselves on the mountain. I don't think I'll be walking far with this one, haven't weighed it but it's pushing 20 I think.
