Pix of the 30-338 Lapua Imp Completed

Thought I'd post the pix (lousy ones) of the rifle I just finished up here last week. Some of you know that I've been shooting this thing in a laughable POS plastic ADL stock for some time now doing some load development with a strain gage setup before I clamped on the barrel block and put it in the stock it was destine for.

Well, my smith chambered it up for me early last winter and I finally pulled the gages of the barrel and took it in to be finished up. We just bought my smith's buisiness off him a little while ago and he's been finishing up all the work he had left getting ready for a trip to Africa in May, so he's been busy enough I finished the barrel block and the rest of the rifle.

I'll have to take it out in the sunlight and get some better photos, these are pretty poor.

Here's a pic of the block I made up for it, pretty close to Jay McMunn's. Jay got me the chunck of aluminum with the nicely pre-drilled 1.35 hole down the middle to whittle it out of. Thanks again Jay! Saved a bunch of work on it, not to mention it fits perfectly! I used 5 5/16-18 tpi cap screws to clamp the block on, and 4 more to hold it into the stock, as the action is freefloated. I bedded 6 lbs. of lead into the butt, pretty much filled the whole thing, but it just balanced out an inch or so in front of the receiver the way it sits. I'm putting a 4 way adjustable buttpad on it this summer, LOP is too short for me but I made it to fit my wife for now. I kept all the lead forward of it another inch, as that's what I'll have to remove to put the other pad on it later. Bout time to go drill some holes in the steel again! BTW, another batch of 210gr JLK's just got finished up, I got 450 on the way... get 'em while they're hot. Jimmy and John both have them now, probably not for long though.
