Re: New Barrel/Caliber

Gentlemen, I appreciate the feedback and after doing some additional research have decided to go with the 6.5x47 Lapua. Thank you again.

Don't overlook the 6mm creedmoor or the 6.5 creedmoor. They are both stupidly accurate and easy to shoot.

Steve, I recognize those stocks! I have one on my STW, and am thinking of adding one to my 308. Very stabile in the front rest, and an awesome fit to the action. I'm talking Bobby Hart, right?
Beautiful rifles there dude! Nice scenery too!

7 STW
Thanks, I built 2 of them the same just different stock colors just wanted to see what I could get out of the little 47 lapua case and its been a good rifle.
The stocks blanks are from Joe Russo, I blue printed the remington actions and added
#7 Bartlien Barrels with a no turn neck reamer from Dave Kiff.

Re: New Barrel/Caliber

I looked at those two Russo stocked rifles several times and couldn't decide which they were. I have a Russo and a Bobby Hart.

If you were nuts you could make a 30" fast twist 6mm-284, barrel life be damned....on a Bobby Hart stock:

AZ, I have the sister to the stock in your pic, and that pic is what made me decide to get it, when I was considering it back in the spring. Mine is on a super accurate STW, and the color I went with was the Tawny Brown. Love it!!!! I honestly thought those two in the above pics were Bobby Harts as well. Those colors are awesome.
