R BROS build

This is a rifle Travis Redell of RBROS built me last year. I have not shot it much, due to magbox feeding issues of Seekins design and shoulder surgury in Jan of this year. Magbox issues still not corrected, but that is another story.
Anyway, went out this evening and zeroed my scope @ 100 then took it out to 750 on a mansize target of steel. No problem hitting steel with it. Decided to shoot a 5 shot group at 300 yards.
Now this group might not be as good as some can shoot, but I impressed myself by having to shoot 3 of the 5 shots without my glasses as the fog from humidity made it impossible to see with them on. The group measures 1.13"
Also, I had to break shooting form from pron to get up on my hands and knees after every shot in order to chamber the next round as the 6.5x47 Lapua cases are still nosing up in Seekins mags and the bolt is riding over them and not feeding.
So, enjoy the pics, and thanks Travis for a great build.
JIM

Re: R BROS build

great I love it and nice group veary nice. Sorry about the shoulder did you consider a brake. I just parted with a 260 rem with one of Kirbys brakes on it and I must say it had no recoil at all.

Re: R BROS build

Its been a year, but going off memory:
Brux barrel staggered flute 1:8x Rem Sendero 26"
Stiller SA Predator
Seekins 20 MOA rail with keyed recoil lug
Manners T4
DE brake
Jewell trigger
Seekins DBM
Shoots the 130gr Bergers @ 2975fps And recoil with the DE brake is extremely mild.
Sendero man, I could take some other pics if you would like. Tell me what you would like to see.

Re: R BROS build

Nice shootin' Trueblue. Congrats. Id be proud of a group like that too after changing positions so many times, and glasses on and off..... Come to think of it, Id be proud of a group like that at 300 even without all the movin around.

Re: R BROS build

Yup, they build a great rifle and have done right by me and my daughter.
I have 2 myself plus the one Shayla has sitting in the safes.
There's nothing like watching my daughter shoot her pink rifle at 1245 yards and put up a sub moa 5 shot group.
