6X47 Lapua tube gun repeater

Well, I finally got to go out and shoot my 6X47 Lapua today and will say I really,really like this round. Here is the load I used.
Virgin brass
CCI 400 primers
105 A-Max molly coated
40 grs. of H4350
3140 FPS.
here is the rifle make up.....

Tube gun repeater by Mak
700 receiver blueprinted with PTG oversize bolt and helical fluting
Magpull fully adjustable butt stock
G27 grip
Broughton 5C 1 in 7 twist 28", I previously had this barrel at 31" chambered in .243 WSSM rogue.
25MOA base
IOR 6-24X50 MP8 retical and exposed turrets.

I have 500, 111's coming from Dave Tubb, should have them in another week.
Here is a couple pixs of the rifle and my 600YD. target. There is 10 rounds on the 600 yd target. was dealing with approx. 10-15 MPH winds. also I have not glued the receiver into the tube gun yet which I still plan on doing as the base sits on top of the tube instead of the action.

More to come........................................

I love it.....been thinkin on one of those tube guns.

The 6x47 kicks major butt IMO. For 600 F-class I do not feel it gives away anything to any caliber. 6br accuracy 6.5x284 ballistics, cant go wrong with that. If you get a chance try some vv560 with 115 bergers. I cant say whether your rifle would like it, but it is magic in both of mine.

Nice rig. Good goin'.

Ya just gotta love that Magpull butt stock.

I've trying to figure how to connect one to an AR-30 stock.
