finally

After a few set backs on stock decision and what not i finally got my rifle today (6month wait). Im not a fan of the stock color but my plan is to have the stock dipped and the barreled action cerekoted anyhow. Im lucky Midwest Hydrographics is only 15 minutes from my house. SO i can drop it off and pick it up 5 days later. I will get more pictures/better pictures, once my scope gets here. I just ordered it yesterday. The guys at benchmark are first class and fast turn around.
Remington 700 LA blue printed
27" 1:8 light palma Benchmark 6-284 fluted
McMillian A3 "OD green with black specks" (baby puke)
Aluminum blocks and bedded
SHilen trigger set to 20OZ
Badger 20MOA ramp and Badger rings (not pictures)
QuickClip detachable
Jlock removed/replaced



Here is a pic. in the sunlight so you can see the stock color

When i get the scope i will post better pictures. These were from my smartphone. Any suggestions on what color to cerekote the barreled action to match the stock? I may just give it a total make over. The one thing i did forget about on this build was a Bolt knob. I will be having that changed this week

Re: finally

Very nice. I like that color of stock how it contrasts with the color of the barrel.
Enjoy it.

Re: finally

Finally!! Welcome to the "Official" 6mm-284 club you won't be disappointed. I would finish the stock before Cerakoting the barreled action, it will be mucho easier that way.


Let me know if you need any more help,

Re: finally.....Range report

Well i didnt waste any time this morning. As soon as it got light enought for my Chrony to read my shots i started breaking in the barrel. I started off with 95gr SST's just to use them up. It only took 6 shots before my patches were coming out clean. So i loaded up three 107SMK with 53.5gr of H1000 (on the lower side of book loads) and i was very please. Now remember im shooting a 3-9 bucksmaster scope with fat crosshair at 150 yards. My highest speed was 3,177FPS and my lowest of the 3 was 3,168. I didnt measure the group yet but did take a picture
