Give Justin Sip at Justin Sip Custom Guns, Inc.: Welcome a call. He has built many of these type rifles and has a lot of knowledge on that particular cartridge....

Re: 6-6.5x47 Lapua Build

Whatever blows ones skirt up is fine with me but frankly I don't want anything but a 'straight' 6.5x47L using Lapua brass! When I get my brass in I run it all through my tool to even up the case mouth as some are somewhat dented inward during shipment, I prime with BR4, weigh out 38.5 grs. Varget, seat a Sierra 123 gr. HPBT and go do this from 1000 yards. 17 rounds in this target, first two are the wind shots over at the 9 o/clock side. The inner plate is 20" diameter.

Here's the rifle:

Good luck with your build whoever you choose to do it. I talked to a guy a few days ago that was really high on his 6 X 47 as I've heard good things about it from others also.

Sharpsman, sweet looking rig you got there and definately a shooter.
