Pictures of your longrange rigs!

Hey, I'm not sure if this has been done (if so please show me how to find it), but I would like to see some pics of everyones longrange rigs. Also, maybe a brief description of parts (stock, barrel, action, scope, etc).

I am looking at a near future build and need some ideas.

Show'em off!

    Well it's not like any of us here are at all opposed to "gun porn"... .



    Sendero 300 Rum.

    Free floated and bedded by me.

    Scope is an IOR 6-24x50 Settin in IOR 35mm rings on a Badger Base.

    Shoots 180gr Siroccos well enough I haven't tried anything else. This is a 300yds target.


    BTW I bought the rifle used here on the LRH classifieds from a fellow member. He bought it new and had the action and bolt face trued, other than my bedding and floating that's all that's been done other than me working the trigger over to a super smooth, crips, clean 1.5lbs.

    26.5" strait taper (don't do that it is HEAVEY) Douglass (I would spend money on a hand lapped barrel if I was you)
    Still the origional stock, the action trigger and bolt have been all completely gone through and tuned. Chambered in 7mag. As it sits there it weighs 15lbs, take the bipods off and stick em in your pack and it's not to terrible to carry, but about 4lbs less would be way better. But as you can see she's seen some miles. Maybe one day it'll get a new stock and a paint job on the metal parts.
