Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

A 300 RUM built for an ESPN2 producer. The show is called "The international spor"tsman series. Should air this fall I am told.

He has a Baboon at 900 plus yards and a Crow at 1275 ish yards so far on film. Both first shot hits. Ammo from Superior Ammo by Larry Barnett.
She was shooting around 3/8" at 100 with the first 200 GR SMK loads Larry sent us.
Scope is a USO 3-17 lit Horus reticle, supplyed by USO, awasome scope BTW!.
Walther 1-10 27" barrel with an Answr sniper brake. Recoil is less than my 15 LB 308. AICS bedded, Badger knob with the Celt 3 screw bolt mod, Shilen trigger, base holes opened to 8-40 and aligned to barrel centerline. Surface groud recoil lug. Ejection port opened for more reliable ejection of live rounds if needed.

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

Mr. Ric Horst,

You have some very nice rifles as do the rest of you gentlemen.

I really like the look and caliber of your .300WSM rifle pictured.

Can you please tell me what badger metal refers to, is this in reference to the scope rings?

What type of action do you use for this rifle, and what is the twist rate and length on your Rock barrel? Also, how much does the whole rig weigh? And in conclusion would you mind letting me know what the cost of such a rifle is, without the scope.

And in conclusion, I would like to hear everybody's opinion on the Nesika Bay Actions. I have looked at these on their website and was impressed to learn that their actions are made from 17-4ph, which I know to be extremely strong and corrosion resistant metal.

Would a Nesika action fit into the McMillan A-5 stock?

I know this is a lot of questions, but I am rather new to this long range ultra accurate sport and I am simply spell bound by it.

I don't really need one of these long range rigs as I am just a hunter who carries light weight hunting rifles into the steep Wy mountains, but I feel that it is my patriotic duty to help stimulate the economy. I just hope my wife see's it that way too!

Thanks in advance for any info,

Hi Vic, and welcome to the Hood.
This is a close-up of Badger Rings and a 20moa canted Base. Note the front part is thinnner than the rear. This helps some guns reach out to farther distances and allows your reticle to remain more centered within the scope tube.
Sounds like you have some early symptoms of an on-going problem [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Celt, pretty slick rig. Nice camo job [img]images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

It has Badger all around- trigger guard, bolt knob, rings, base and recoil lug.

The Nesika is a great action. I have built a ton of rifles on them. Maybe Len will see this and post a pic of his two Nesika's in A5 stocks.
I'll try to post of few here later if I can.

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!


Here is a picture of two rifles Chris Matthews did for me recently with a Nesika Bay action and an A5 stock.

Whoops! How did that 900 yard steel target picture get in there? [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

That's a 5 inch square.
