338 Big Baer, new addition to the gang.





Here is my lastest addition. 338 Big Baer in a highly figured Bubinga stock. Started this build about 1 1/2 years ago. Since then I have had shoulder surgury, and my dog broke his leg, so it was nice to get some good news for a change.

The rifle was chambered by Bruce Baer, and the stock work was done by the man himself, Joel Russo.
Got it in the mail last night, so have not shot it yet. Joel sent a 3 shot target @300 yards of 1"
Here are the specs:
-Bat Model M 1.55 single shot action
-Bat 20 MOA rail
- Krieger 30" barrel 10 flutes with my personal contour
-Jewell bottom safety trigger
-Vais break
-Adj. cheek peice hardware
Rifle weighs 14.4# without optics. With a Nightforce on it it should be just under 17#.
I could not post a very big picture, so hopefully Joel can post a bigger pic so everyone can appreciate the workmanship of these guys.
Thanks for the beautiful rifle, Joel.
Edit: I figured out how to post a better picture, so here it is.
