How much does the whole outfit weigh?
By the way, those are great groups for a rifle that is not even half a box of ammo old!

Hi Ric
Early days but looks like a keeper! BTW what distance?
What was the plan behind this caliber? Push a little more weight than the WSM?
By the way how heavy is the complete rig?
Your earlier post with the initial photos showed a much darker camo job than you usually have?
Is Chris still with George at GAP or this a new venture? The Long Shot rifle bit?
All the best
APB

Chris @ LongShotRifles@yahoo.com he works for GA as well but is venturing out on his own too...

those first 12 were fired at 100 yards
I havn't wieghed the rifle but it is around the 15 lb range.

I kinda wanted a dark color... and the reasoning for the WM was I wanted to push a bit heavier bullet.. 220's are my goal...

The WSM is an Ideal caliber for teh 190's but I feel any heavier and you need the case capacity of the WM....

Re: My new baby shoots too!!!! hehehe

So how does the new Badger brake work ,how would you rate it as opposed to say Vias or OPS as far as noise and recoil?

Re: My new baby shoots too!!!! hehehe

Did some more shooting.... ;-)

All I have to say is that I tried different powders... with different charge wieghts and never got a bigger group than .5
That is a testiment to the way Mr. Matthews builds a rifle... I am not even done with break in and this this is a screamer!

this is using the 220SMK

heres a load of
H 4831 SC 68.5 grs. + 2710 fps Avg.
1 fowler and a 3 shot group!!


Here is a group with H1000 74.0 grs = 2770 fps

1 fowler and a 3 shot group
