Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

Here are a few pics of my 7RUM I just got back from Kirby Allen. He installed the Holland QD brake and did a Excellent job as I expected and also bedded the rifle which was also another superb job. This rifle was a good shooter before but is even better now!! The only other mods that have been made are a timmeny trigger johnnyk and myself installed and tuned to a crisp 2 pounds. Not as fancy as some but it gets the job done! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] [image]http://[/image] This is the view from my end. Everything on top of the reciever is Burris. Signature rings with 20 MOA in the rings via inserts with a 6x24x50 30 mil tube ballistic mil dot reticle Black Diamond snuggled in them. [image][/image] Here is a close up of the brake which works wonders on recoil! Thanks Kirby!! [image][/image] [image][/image] There are two more pics just for eye candy! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img] I will try to post pics of my other rigs later.
Guns and ammo, what more do we need?

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

Thanks guys. I really like that thumbhole stock. Very easy to use when shooting off a bipod.

The big hole really does work. Vents almost all the muzzle blast sideways. Looks like a howitzer going off. The width of the barrel also acts like a sail. For something so basic, it reduced the distance this rig recoils from 3" to 1". Recoil is now like a 22/250.

So as I have said in the past, muzzle brake effectiveness is based on how effectively you can vent the gas in any direction except forward, and if you can provide a surface(s) for the gases to push forward on.

Re: lets see some LR rifle pics!

Awesome thread, can't wait to get my 3 RUMS back from Kirby so I can post them.

Can someone recommend a good Buttstock Shell Holder? (since so many are visible).
