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
Teflon finish
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.

Re: More from Defensive Edge

Shawn,
What would the weight difference be between the standard 700 action, SS or Chromoly vs the Ti action ?
Thanks, bb204

Re: More from Defensive Edge

There is 7 ounces difference between the two complete action and bolt assemblies. It was the only way we could break the 6 lb barrier and still have a reasonably stiff barrel.

Re: More from Defensive Edge

What's the barrel length on the "Grand Slam?" Let me say that's one heck of a good looking rifle and I really like the weight!

This one is 24" but you can of course have them 20-26" if you like.
