My new 6.5-284 LSR

Got a new toy last month but haven't had much time to shoot it yet.

700 action
Broughton 5-C heavy varmint
A-5
Badger Metal top and bottom
Mark 4 8.5-25
Built by Chris Matthews LongShot Rifles

Break in was easy. Cleaned up nicely after about 7 rounds (1 and clean) Showed great signs with H4831sc 50 grains during break in with 142smk's and 210m Lapua brass. (slow load 2780fps) went under 1/2" for five shots. When I worked up to 2960 fps it went 1/4" for 3-shots. I haven't played with seating just 12 off, don't think I will, if it repeats it I'm going shootin [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img]
Ric will post pictures.

    28" Broughton lists it at 7.6 Lbs. When I get a Chance I will weigh it and let you know.

    I've been waiting to see this baby. Talked to Chris awhile back and he mentioned to keep an eye out for this post. WOW!! I need to have this rifle built for me now
    A few questions. Is it a 700 long action? Looks like it is.

    Time to gather an action and send it off to Chris Can you give an idea of the total you paid for this lovly beast

    Also..is it a single shot or repeater. God I'm drooling all over. Time to try to gather some funds

    Thanks
