.300 Weatherby by APS
This June I picked up my new rifle by Allen Precision Shooting. This is my first precision rifle.
The build is a:
27" Lilja 3-groove w/ heavy flutes (#7 contour).
Lawton 7000 Action
McMillan A-5 (wow, what a wait).
Defensive Edge brake
Nightforce 3.5-15 x 50mm
I will attach a photo soon.
It is a wonderful rifle to shoot with the Decelerator pad and Defensive Edge brake. Learning curve for me to shoot off of bi-pod (I was a backpack guy), but I am getting it now. Shooting 200gr Accubond for hunting and 210 SMK for gophers. Best load with Accubond came with 82.6 grains of Ramshot Magnum at 2980 fps. Still working with Retumbo and the SMK. Can push the 210's to over 3000fps with no signs of pressure, but I do not see the need.
I would maybe shorten the barrel and inch, because I do not think the rifle gained much velocity for the extra weight in this caliber. This gun will be packed in the hills.
It is a nice precision rifle, that shoots 1/2 MOA when I do. Kirby took me to a place near Ft. Shaw to shoot at 1212yds. I think I need some practice before I can talk about 1/2 MOA at that range. Even the light breeze in the morning really changed things.
Thank you Kirby. Nice work.
