Yep, that's right.. I did it again! This time it is a mid-weight whitetail hunting rifle chambered in 6.5x47 Lapua. Unfortunately I was unable to be present for the build, but I will be for the next one. The big brown truck showed up earlier this afternoon with a package from Mr. Gradous and oh boy was I pleasantly surprised when I opened the box, it felt like Christmas morning! The complete rig weighs in at 12.8 lbs with a loaded magazine, which seems like a feather compared to my tactical rig's. I quickly loaded up some rounds and headed to the range even though it was raining! I think just a little tinkering with the seating depth and not being in such a rush will produce better groups. I guarantee this rifle will shoot a heck of alot better than I did today! I look forward to testing it out on steel at a 975 yards next week.
Mr. Gradous explained this is the first 6.5x47 Lapua to be fully built on his HAAS CNC TL-1 lathe. He informed me this rifle has the spiral lock threaded tenon.
Thank you again for the great service and the excellent products you provide the shooting community!!
