RPA interceptor

I am interested in this rifle but never hold one.
Can you give me the good and the bad?
Pictures?
I am also interested in the AICS kit with the quadlite repeater.
Thanks
David

Re: RPA interceptor

Nobody using this rifle?
I was thinking it was the ultimate long range rifle.
Maybe I am wrong

Re: RPA interceptor

im using one and i love it
its an allrounder basicly i use mine for f class as well as long range varmint shooting and stalking deer the lot
At the moment its in 6mmbr cartridge which is one of my favorite rounds
iv got a new barrel which im going to screw on in a dasher or brx just to give me that slight edge its a great action which is as solid as they come heres a few pictures

Re: RPA interceptor

Great looking rifle !
How 's the accuracy?

I both have the 6 BR and 6 BRX build on the same Viper drop port rifle.
For long range I prefer the BRX.( both are neckturn versions)
The RPA is going to be a 260 Rem match.
Thank you for posting the pictures

Here is a link to my Viper

Re: RPA interceptor

Forgot one more thing.
How does the stock behave on the sandbags? Does it have some torque?
I am asking because I always use stock that have a low fore end design.
Best David

Re: RPA interceptor

thanks for the comments
it was 6mmbr.com and your video that got me started on this rifle and caliber so thanks
the stock isnt great realy for f class as there is some torque which doent help but it does ride the bags quite well and a slightly firmer hold on the rifle tends to iron this out a bit my biggest let down at the moment is my scope which is realy holding me back as its only a 10 power i struggle sometimes to put the bullet where i want
the accuracy is pretty good though with the 105 berger moly bullets driven by RL15 apart from the quite bad carbon build from the powder im quite happy .
this is also a tight neck and i turn cases down to .267 which i find cleans them up nicely
how do you like the brx as im still unsure which way to go with my new barrel.
the cheapness of the brx is tempting but im still not sure about the short neck can you convince me of the brx or would you go the dasher route
my list of things to do to this rifle goes like this;
new scope nxs 12-40
then change the barrel and if got any money left change the stock to a tooley mbr style
any thoughts

Re: RPA interceptor

Smackumdown,

That stock has, to me, some very pleasing features.
I especially like the looks of the pistol grip/palm swell.
It looks like the thumb would lay perfectly parallel to the bore and make for a pretty sweet trigger brake.

How would one get with the stock maker?

David Bergen,

I went to the link on your rifle. I read the whole thing.

Pretty nice, in fact very nice.

Good work all the way around.

I had to grin at the "fly" shot.

I did the same thing many years ago during a bench rest match.
It was the last shot of the last relay.
I was locked in a dead heat with my shooting buddy.
The gallery was watching through their spotters.
He made his shot. It didn't enlarge the group.
The gallery was on the edge of their seats.
Now it was up to me and that damn'd fly landed on my scoring target about a inch and a half from the group.
I was in the zone, so to speak.
I knew where the bullet was going to go.
I shifted to the fly.
I broke the trigger. The gallery gasped.
When the target came in for score I was questioned about what happened.
All I said was, "What color is the ring around the hole?"
The scorer looked again and said "Red".
All I did was give a big smile. In fact I'm still smiling.
I ended up second in the match but it was well worth it.
