I dont have any pics of it yet but Kirby is building me what should turn out to be one hell of a packing wieght long range rig.
Trued Savage reciever
28" #5 contour Lilja Fluted bbl
Rifle Basix trigger 1lb
McMillan Lightwieght Desert Camo stock
Teflon Coated Tan
NF 3.5-15x50mm NPR-1
NF Ultra Lite Rings
In my last 30" bbl 270AM i was able to push the 169.5uld wildcat fast enough that with a .740BC it only took me 14.5 MOA of elevation adjustment from a 100yd to thump a bullseye at 1000yds. I never chorono it but it was trottin right along!! Now this was a very very hot load and definantly not recommended especially in summer.
Should be a pretty slick lookin rifle when its said and done. If i manage to get the berries up for it i will have the NF scope painted to match the rest of it, kinda scared to paint a scope that expensive.
take it easy

Thanks guys for the info. I'm just hashing some ideas around as I have a couple actions that are just gathering dust. I have questions on these actions I will post also. Hey Kirby, If me and my buds draw our antelope tags for North of Shelby, I'd like to stop by and chat. We drive right by where you are coming from Corvallis. mtmuley
Just give me a heads up when you are coming through. We can run out back and hammer some steel at 500 yards with the lightweight (17 lbs) 338 AM. Will put a smile on everyones face!!!!! You can also play with several other rifles to see if there is anything I make that would serve your needs. I am sure we could find something!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I'll do it. We drew last year, but odds in that area are about 50%, so I am holding out hope. Sure would like to check out those rifles in person. I have alot of family up there, so I might just stop by anyway. Thanks, mtmuley
