    Sweet!

    Maybe I missed it, but what chassis is that?

    Looks like a Whiskey3 chassis to me....But I could be wrong. They all look pretty similar these days.

    That's just sweet! So, what action is that? Is that a Rem 700 RUM action (wider feed rails)? Has it been modified to accept the .500 Jeffery casings at all? I know the RUM calibers are based off the .404 Jeffery, which is why I ask.

    That .375 Mjolnir is nasty...Maybe someday I can talk you into letting me borrow that reamer.

    It is the KRG Whiskey 3 chassis in the fixed butt version, they also make a folder for a bit more $
    this rifle also has the 338 Wolverine in a 30" Bartlein 5R 9.3 twist fluted Rem Varmint contour and again the extra inch has a muzzle brake machined into it.... also have a new 34" Benchmark blank in 9.5 twist Sendero contour getting fluted and will be installed soon with the Benchmark Muscle Brake, this switchbarrel project also will have my 300 Wolf and 416 Grizzly added, reamers are in production and will be using Benchmark barrels, very impressed with their barrels and turnaround time was less than a month..

    the action is a Sako TRGS m995 that was originally a 7.82 Warbird, a perfect candidate for the 500 Jeffery based wildcats, the Rem 700 action IS NOT suitable for these wildcats....

    Ok, thanks for the heads up....I'll have to find a Sako TRGs m995 somewhere.

    Who is doing the fluting? Your smith?

    How is your switch barrel configured? Do you need an action wrench?
