Re: New LR Rig Has Arrived!

.284
I handled several different stocks before settling on the Greybull. Weight is not bad at 2.6 lbs, and it just felt right in all positions. The forearm is wide enough for stability, but I can easily get my hand around it for carrying. The factory finish is good too, even though I had mine Duracoated.

Re: New LR Rig Has Arrived!

I am on their site every couple weeks looking at new builds. He makes some nice guns. I have heard a lot of good about them.

How long was your wait? Did you get the new ART reticle with MOA above and below the horizontal cross? I would love to see a through the scope picture of that reticle sometime.

Nice Rig!

Specs:
7mm Remington .307" neck throated for 180 gr Berger VLD
BAT HR action w/ integral 20 MOA rail, melonite treated by BAT, receiver then bead blasted
Jewell Trigger
Kreiger #19 barrel, cut to 28"
Greybull stock, Duracoat finish
Schmidt Bender PMII 4-16x50 w/ Holland ART MOA reticle

The goal with this rifle is marmots at 1K, then LR elk hunting.
Wow! This sounds a LOT like my current build which is posted on the forum "30/375 S.I.". Mine has a 28" Krieger Sendero contour but will look a lot like yours. This kind of gives me a preview and I like it! Sounds like a real shooter too..........Rich

love the barrel! I ordered a #5 fluted sporter hoping to get something similar to what you have there..... Hope mine looks something like that.
