My new rifle

Hi guys

Thought you might like to see my new rifle. I am still in the process of load development, but it seems pretty promising so far.

Good to hear ya like it. The colour is dyed into the laminates before they are layed up. Bill Shehane has a large range of colours available on his web site at http://www.scopeusout.com/colors.htm. All my gunsmith did was to apply a clear semi gloss coat to a well-rubbed down stock.

Just in case you are interested, I have added a link to some pictures of my friend’s light rifle on a Shehane laminate http://www.angelfire.com/sports/actbenchrest/lightgun.html.

I think you are referring to Annie Elliott and you’d be right that she often kicks our behind in competitions. The rifle was built for her technical adviser (her husband Stuart who is also an excellent shot). Annie and Stuart alternate between their light and their heavy rifles, depending on the events they are shooting. Just recently at a competition Annie commented that she didn’t like shooting the light gun as much as the heavy, then almost immediately went out to her bench and shot a 1000yd light gun group with 4 shots in about 1.6”, but with the 5th shot being caught in a wayward wind gust for a total 5.82” group!

Any day you beat Annie probably means you shot exceptionally well!

The rifle has two barrels in 6.5mm chamberings, one is a Tobler (Australian made custom barrel) in 6.5/284 Shehane and the other is a Trueflight (New Zealand made custom barrel) in 6.5x57 Imp. Both of these barrels shoot very well.
