Re: 6.5-300 ultra is ready!!!

That's not just a rifle it's a work of art. Congratulations. I look forward to hearing how it shoots for you.

Not so very long ago I gave very serious consideration to building a 6.5 STW... . Damn it, now I'm thinking about it again!

    Beautiful rifle! Joel Russo does very nice work. Very interesting chambering. That is a lot of fire behind a 6.5 bullet. Enjoy the challenge.

    All I can say is wow.
    I like the idea and the thinking outside of the box.
    And I love that stock---one of these days, I am going to have to have Joel build me one. Ummmm, lets see---a Russo or a synthetic??? Duh.

    Your nutts, but thats a beautifull rifle.
    Actually it sounds real fun, but be carefull, its kinda like a trophy wife. Absolutely beautifull, & everyone's envy, but boy you gotta have deep pockets to keep er' goin.....
    Plastic surgery/new barrels is a small price to pay for somethin that sexy & fun to play with

    That is perhaps the most beautiful rifle I have ever seen! Good luck with the rifle an I can't wait to hear how it shoots. I hope you put the smack down on an animal this year just so I can hear about that rifle at work!

    Man Alive! Thats is so stinking sweet! Even though barrel life will be crazy short... who care? The only thing that I hear from guys with Allen Mags and other hot rods is "cant wait to get another one". Cool choice.

    That is one very pretty peice, and one of my favorite wood to work with, black walnut.
