Long Range Rifle Price Check

I acquired my first long range rifle for a price that I thought was dirt cheap. Since I don't really have much experience with long range rifles, I was hoping someone can tell me what I have here, what it all means, and how much it is worth. I will likely sell it since I hear that the long range shooting gets pretty expensive and I don't reload. The rifle is in great condition and has only had 100 rounds down the barrel. The specs are below:

- Remington 700 action

- Black Star Accumax Barrel 1:8 twist Stainless Steel

- Chambered in 6.5-06

- Leupold VX-IIc 4-12 AO with friction target turrets

- HS Precision stock

I would really appreciate anybody's help here. Let me know if I can answer any questions you have about the rifle to provide an accurate estimate. I don't have any pictures of it yet since I am in california and the gun is currently in the 10-day waiting period at the FFL.

Thanks!
-Ryan.

Re: Long Range Rifle Price Check

There is a 6.5-06 sendero for sale in classifieds for 1200 that is fluted and has muzzle break and aftermarket trigger for 1200.00 These options add to the cost of build.

Do you know who did the smith work on your rifle?

If not, I would suggest parting the scope out and like anything the price you get for rifle is dependent on your patience to wait for the right buyer and what the market will bear.

My guess is in the end ~ 800 for rifle, but it is based on condition and how she shoots etc.

Re: Long Range Rifle Price Check

Thanks guys. The custom work was done by a guy named Dale at J&G gunsmithing in Roseville, CA. The barrel is not fluted, but it is a heavy barrel.

If anyone is interested in purchasing this, let me know and I will get some pictures when I get her out of jail.

thanks.

-Ryan.
