Shot #1... fire-formed one case to make a modified case gauge to fit my Stoney Point comparator tool.
Shots #2-6... bore-sighting and getting on paper (forgot the scope was last used @ 1000yds... on a .223
Shots #7,8,9,10, & 11... centering up for load testing. I hate it when that stray shot goes exactly where I called it...
In the interest of full disclosure... they didn't build this rifle from the ground up. It was originally assembled by someone else as a .308 Winchester, and shot like a house-afire in that configuration. Situations change, and the criteria that defined what I wanted to use this rifle for did too. I had a 40X Prone rifle with two barrels, one a Broughton 5C .308 Win (Palma barrel) and a second Lilja 6BR. The rifle didn't work out as well as a switch barrel as I'd hoped (note: never re-use a factory recoil lug, even if it's pinned), so I decided to 'recycle' the barrel as a 6-6.5x47L. It had all the right specs: three groove, 1-8" twist, fluted medium Palma contour, approx. 29.5" long w/ a 0.750" dia. muzzle tenon (for mounting front sight). R-Bros took the barrel, trimmed back the tenon, threaded it for a Badger Ord. Thruster brake, chambered it for 6x47L with a barrel length of ~28.25", and coated it. They also corrected some issues w/ the action - only one lug had been contacting (surprising, considering how well it shot).
Very nice rig - one of those projects where what I wanted is exactly what I wanted (for a change). Seems to shoot the B105VLD pretty well so far. Gonna get a load fully worked up for it, and then start looking for a load w/ the Hornady 87gr VMax or B88LD bullet... and start thumpin' some coyotes with it!
