New stick pics

Thought I'd share a couple of pictures of the newest project.

It's a 7mm SAUM
27" Douglass XX barrel from Sharp Shooters Supply
SSS recoil lug
SSS competition trigger set at 2 lbs.
SSS tactical bolt knob
Sits in a Boyds pepper laminate thumbhole stock bedded with devcon.

After all this time and effort I sure hope she shoots.
Pics didn't turn out the best but you can get the idea.

Re: New stick pics

Nice!

What kind of velocity are you getting out of that long tube?

Re: New stick pics

It sure looks the part. I love that laminated wood look. Let us know how it shoots, or better yet, show us [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]

I'm hopeing to get around 3000 fps with a 160 gr Accubond. But it might be a little while before I get to fire this one. Its the third project I've done in the last 18 mos.

I've been so wrapped up in building them I haven't been keeping up with the optics end of things. I've got a 243 with a Tasco on it and this one with no scope at all.

Time to start saving my pennies for a couple more Conquests.

Re: New stick pics/ With range results

Well I couldn't stand it any longer, I temporarily put an old Bushnell on this and headed for the range this morning.
Barrel break in went very well, 6-8 shots and copper fouling dropped right off. I shot 6 3 shot groups after break in with 2 different powders, Re-22 and H4831sc.

H4831sc
58.9 2857,2821,2838

59.2 2840,2826,2886

59.5 2856,2864,2871

Re-22
58.5 2901,2866,2844

58.7 2860,2880,2883

59.0 2884,2900,2912

Velocities were a little disapointing for a 27" barrel but the 59.5 grs. of 4831sc went into .716 and the 58.7 grs of Re-22 went into .252.

The top loads of both powders is the Nosler max load for a 160 gr bullet but neither one showed any pressure signs so I'll be trying for a little more velocity if I can get it.

Recoil was a little suprising I was expecting a just little more than my 6.5-284 but it's closer to my 300 WM. I'm pretty sure I'll be replacing the recoil pad for a little more comfort.
