Re: Proof Research custom rifles

have they, or anyone, actually got a carbon wrapped anything that doesn't start walking after around 5 shots? if so, they are worth as much as a ss barrel.

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

So, I randomly stumbled across this thread via a Google search so I decided I'd follow up on my earlier posts.

I have long since had my .375 CheyTac completed (XLR stock, Stiller Tac408 action, Proof Research Barrel, Jewel trigger, LRA bipod) and it's a shooter to say the least. .25 MOA is effortless and I typically run in the 0.15 range. The weight is fantastic and it looks sexy as hell. To answer a previous post, shooting strings has no effect. I only have two magazines so I am limited to 10 shot bursts but in so doing, the groups do not wander at all. This sort of abuse, however, is not something out of which I want to make a habit so it was a one time deal....

I liked the build so much that I am addicted. I now have a .300 Win Mag with a Stiller action and Proof barrel that delivers the same performance. In fact, I have a .300 WSM and a .308 under construction now and both are using Proof barrels. I am a true believer to say the least.

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

Thanks for following up. Sounds like you have a beast of a rifle. What is the weight all up? Did you have proof do all the work or another smith?

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

I have no idea what it all weighs but I am sure it's much lighter than the option via a SS barrel. One of these days I'll have to put it on a scale just to see. The CheyTac was done by Shawn Menzenberg (straightshootersupply.com).

Here's the 300 WM (By Ray Bowman).

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

I really like that 300. Looks like what i want in a 7mm. What stock is that? Very nice rifles all around.

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

The stock is a "Remington Hunter" by McMillan that was painted by Central Arizona Firearms. It also has an Edwards recoil reducer in the butt which seems to change the recoil from a "kick" to a "shove".

Re: Proof Research custom rifles

I see. Thank you for letting me know. I have not held a McMillan rem hunter. I know they are very popular.
