New 6.5x47 is done. pics

I just have to share this with somebody. Very excited about getting it back from the smith.
I'll try and remember the details.

It's shooting lapua brass, CCI 450's, 130gr VLD's over 39gr of varget. Loves this load.

Rem 700 SA
Kreiger 25" 1-9 twist sendaro contour.
Jewell hvr
nightforce 5.5-22, ring and bases as well.
us optics hinged bubble level.
Manners mcs-t5a with the digital camo paint job
Manners/badger mcs-dbm mini chassis
PTG bolt, with all the goodies done to it.
threaded 5/8x24 for TI gemtech sandstorm suppressor.

Smithed by Shawn Thomason in Craigmont, ID

think that's most of it. the farthest I've shot it was 1480yds and that was today. That's a little far for this little guy. It's almost transonic at that point. But it's shooting excellent to around 1000-1100. So much fun to shoot after shooting my bigger guns all the time. You don't need ear protection and it's easy to spot your own hits. this thing is a blast! thanks for looking, i just had to share

Very nice. I hope to build something similar one day. I just love that stock, and... everything else on that rifle.

I think that is a fine rifle. You had me doing a double take when you said no hering protection then I looked at the pics and I understood. What are you going to use her for?

Re: New 6.5x47 is done. pics

thanks guys. I built because I was shooting my custom 300rum to much, and this will be a easier way to practice, at least that is how i justified it;). I'll be doing a lot of varmint shooting, some deer(but the 300 will get to nod for that most of the time). Lots of rocks will and already have been killed by it, and I think I'm going to start shooting f-class as well.

What a beast. Great looking rig. What is the finished weight?
