The rifle in the picture is a 6.5 06 That was built for me by Shawn Carlock at Defensive Edge. I have been wanting a rifle for long range Varmint and deer for several years and after a long conversation with Shawn this is what he built for me.. The base rifle is a Remington 700 that had the action squared and trued. The bolt had a Sako type extractor installed along with a second ejector. The bolt was fit to the reciever so the lugs have full contact. The barrel is a Hart 27" fluted stainless steel. Shawn fit the bolt face to the barrel and chambered and threaded it. Between the barrel and the reciever is a Tubb heavy recoil lug. Shawn built the muzzle brake
and installed it. The trigger is a stock Remington trigger that is set at 2.75 pounds with no take up or overtravel. The stock is an HS Precision with the HS box mag. The rings and bases are from Night Force. The base is a 20 MOA unit and the rings are Ultra Lights. The scope is a Leupold 6.5x20 long range tactical with .25 MOA knobs and a side focus. The initial shooting was done in the rain and at 300 yards the gun shot a .75" group with Hornady 140gr A Max at 2980 fps. The gun was then finished in a teflon moly. I will be shootin the gun this upcoming weekend and will post results then. I would recommend Shawn at Defensive Edge with out hesitation to anyone wanting to get a long range rifle built.
