Re: R BROS build

trueblue, I'm told by the local shooters with the 6.5x47 and 6.5creedmore that the badger bottom metal and AI mags work fine together. Maybe you should have it changed out. I'd think your smith would take care of it without question if the rifle he built wasn't funtioning properly...?? I don't know the situation - obviously there's some back story there...

Regardless, I like the looks of your rifle. What is the coating? I'm also interested in your fluting, which is like my .260 barrel. Brux does a great job with that style of flutes. How many rows of flutes are on your sendero contour?

loadersloft,
If I can't get this feeding issue resolved, I might have to change bottom metal as you suggest.

Re: R BROS build

To answer your other questions, the coating is Cerakote, done by Travis ( R BROS ) . He does a great job of coating and digital camo on stock.
The barrel has 10 flutes.

Re: R BROS build

Travis sure builds some very nice rifles! I'll be sending him some work in the near future myself. Nice rifle, wouldn't expect any less from Travis.
