Here is a new rifle i have just completed for a good friend. I am calling this the "Thunderstruck" its chambered in my 338 snipe-tac, 338-408 Imp for those not familiar with it. I spent a few hours with the mill on this one.
Lawton 8000 single shot action
I milled the receiver to take a 5 round magazine, bead blasted and KG Gunkote black finish. Jewell trigger installed.
The stock is all aluminum with adjustable LOP and cheek rest. Weight 5#
I custom built the bottom metal to match up with the magazine.
The barrel is a ABS/Mike Rock carbon wrapped, 10 twist, 32" with brake.
1.400 breech tapered to 1.100" at the muzzle. 6.5# weight.
The whole rifle is finished in Duracoat, my own camo pattern and colors i mixed from leftovers.
Testing will start later this week and then its off to Wyoming for Antelope and Elk hunts
. The goal is an Antelope past a mile. He will be using the 300 SMK bullet for these hunts, later on the Alum tipped wildcat bullets will be load tested.
Total weight for this rifle as is 15#
It will have a Nightforce 2DD redical 5.5-22x56mm scope and 40moa base.
I will post some shooting info later this week.
