Re: More from Defensive Edge
There seems to be a little interest here on the Grand Slam, here is the scoop. It is very light shoots very well but is spendy to say the least. We start with a Remington Alaskan TI rifle (it is always nice to spend 1800.00 on a rifle and throw away everything but the action) then do the following:
Square, true & lap the action
Install DE bolt release
Install M16 extractor
Install Wyatt's ext box mag center feed
Tune factory trigger to 2.5 lbs
Install Hart #4 profile fluted barrel (this one in 7 WSM)
Fit and bed McMillan Edge fill classic stock (the factory one sucks)
2 flush cups
Stock painted in a web camo
Bed and install DE 20 MOA tapered ring base set
Test fire and proof 1/2 moa or better
4310.00 + optics
The price is pretty stout mostly due to the Ti action but if you want a sub 6 lb rifle that still shoots that is what it takes. That was our target weight was sub 6 and still 1/2 moa.
We were getting 3010 fps with the 162 gr AMAX and I got one group in the high .3's but most were right at .5 some were over of course but I am comfortable calling it a solid 1/2 moa rifle.
