    GREAT Shooting!

    NICE Rifle!

    BEAUTIFUL RAM's, how old were they. The second one looks awefully busted up.(maybe just his "bad side") [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
    how many points did you have??

    Excellent terminal preformance of the Bergers, im hoping to get the same out of my 6.5 this season on some big mulies with a similar load.

    GG,

    Congratulations on some fine shooting. That is one nice looking rifle. I have actually had an interest in the 6.5-284 for a couple of years.
    If I may ask,what stock do you have on your rifle?

    As always, great shooting GG. It must be nice to live in such a beautiful area. I hope, one day, I will be able to go chuck hunting. I just do not know who to contact and or where to go. Can you give us the specs on your rifle, it looks real nice.

    Thanks.
    The larger one was about 9.5 years old.
    The really beaten up one was about 11.5 years old and had been fighting with another ram who was famous in this area because he would have scored in the 180's and been ranked high in the B&C book. This famous ram beat the heck out of our ram every winter for 8 or 9 years! Everyone I show these pics to thinks these rams fell off a cliff after being shot but they didn't. They just like to knock the snot out of each other all the time. We never saw any rams without broken noses!

    Both these hunters had maximum points (13) when they drew these tags.

    Good luck with those mulies!

    The six-five is hard to beat in my book. Accuracy, speed, uniformity, and decent barrel life all in one nice package. It is undoubtedly one of my favorite cartridges and I will always have one in my arsenal.


    My stock is an H.S. Precision sendero stock that I modified with the help of a couple friends who are auto collision repair specialists. I wanted to add weight so I wrapped some wheel weights around the forend and then built up long- fiber body putty and sanded it down to shape. It took several weeks and about 30 man hours to finish and paint.

    Looking back on it, I should have just bought a Mcmillan but I wanted to see if we could make a true custom stock. It is surely one of a kind!

    The rifle is a blueprinted 700 with a Pac-nor 30.5" barrel. It wears a Performance Guns muzzle brake and a Jewell trigger. The scope is a Leupold 8.5-25x50 LRT with a fine duplex reticle and it sits atop Ken Farrel 20moa bases and uses Burris Sig rings with 10 minute inserts. The stock is a modified HS Precision sendero stock which has been glass bedded.
