Awhile back I had Chris Matthews of Longshot Rifles build me a new toy. I posted some real quick pics and really never gave any details because I was too busy playing with it.
So....That being said here it is.
Remington 700 Long Action trued and gone over with a fine tooth comb.
2.5 Lb Trigger that breaks like a glass rod
Broughton 5C SS barrel (chambered by Chris in 6.5-284)
Badger Bolt knob
Badger rings and bases...20 moa
McMillan A-5 Tactical weight stock and bedded for above
Bolt reworked to remove J lock and increase lock time
The Barrel and Action Teflon coated in MilSpec OD Green.
Also Blind Mag
Not sure if I forgot anything? Anyway, after several trips to the range and several different loads, all I can say is this baby shoots. Chris guarantees 1/2" MOA at 100 yards...HA!! This thing does better than that every time out
Posted 3rd place in the Mifflin groundhog shoot in June. Was placed in the unlimited class with the Bench rest boys and well....Came in 3rd. The day before the shoot I went to said range and recorded an awesome 500 yard group with witnesses I'll post below as well as 100 yard group, I wish I could of shot that 500 group at the match…hmmm too much pressure. A few Club members were shocked the way this baby was shooting. I also need to thank Rimfire for giving me his secret load [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] Wow does that shoot.
Anyway, here is a little gun porn of the LSR as well as some targets. Oh, the stray shot at 500 was the first shot...after windage change I shot the 3 shot group
Anyone even thinking of having a project done...Look no further than Longshot Rifles! Simply the best in my book.
