.375 Cheytac Build...PICS!

The Man in the Brown Truck stopped by today and left me a package....My .375 Pac-nor 1/10" twist super match barrel showed up after about 9 wks. Barrel looks great. It's 1.350 for 4" and then tapering down to 1" at the muzzle with 6 flutes.

It's going on my Bat action with 40MOA base. I haven't exactly decided if I'm going to use the standard .375 cheytac chambering or one of the improved versions. I'll probally go with one of the improved versions.

I'm going to be putting in an order for a manners T-4 in the next couple of days. Anyways I'm excited to say the least, and wanted to Share. More pics and progress to come.

i bet it'll shoot better if you point the action in the same direction as the barrel! OK, a little attempt at humor. looks great, keep us posted

Earl,

I'm a bit behind you but gaining......

What's the diameter of that Bat?

Yea, may as well go with an improved version which should settle you in for a while. There isn't much out there that bigger and still useful.

Re: .375 Cheytac Build...PICS!

The Bat action is a model M 1.55 diameter single shot. It has the straight flutes. I must say it is a machining masterpiece. It's hard to believe how nice these actions are until you actually put your hands on one.

The barrel is unfinished @ 31". It is 1.350 diameter for 4" tapers to 1.2 @ 7" and then to 1" at the muzzle. It's a 6 groove 1/10" twist. I've had very good luck with the pac-nor barrels, and will continue to use them until I get a bad one.

Roy, you have plenty of time to catch up!...I'll be building this rifle, as I get the "extra" money. I'm finding out This Chey-tac stuff isn't cheap!

Those BAT's are nice. I just picked mine up Thursday. Same as yours but with helical flutes. My .375 Brux came in Monday. I'm going to do an improved version with a Russo A-5.
