HS Precision rifle, pics!

I've gotten around to taking some pics of my rifle to show on here, hope you enjoy.

It's still "unfinished" I will be adding a bubble lever, cosine indicator and sling before it is complete.

Looks familiar. [img]images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]
Took that crow's head off with a 70gr B-Tip @ 495yds.

I call it the BLACK MAMBA. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Nice, really nice.
I just bought a Sendero 300 rum.
Sure would like the fit of that stock better than the factory's. How about some info. thanks

Re: HS Precision rifle, pics!

VH is yours' in 6PPC? shooting 70gn B-tips I would think so?

Hogs; The stock is comfy, the adjustable cheekpiece is very good, quick to set up or change should need arise, like when you need to remouve the bolt for cleaning.

I find it looks to be a little bit bulkier than the McMillan stocks, though I can't say cos' I've never been able to get my hands on a McM stock here.
It doesn't feel bulky once you snuggle into it though.

I feel the forend may not be quite stiff enough, because there are marks where it has connected with the barrel.

At this stage I'm not keen to do anything about it, becuase the rifle shoots fine and it would mean voiding the warantee on it.
I if I decide I won't ever need to make a claim (very likely) I might install an arrow shaft or alluminuim splint in there and see if that helps.

The only gripe about the rifle is that the whole unit is very heavy and the 8-32x56 has a very narrow field of view, making the rifle unfriendly towards anything but LR shooting or range work.

Express
The Black Mamba has a Rem 40x action and a Hart 6mmAI barrel. Nightforce 12x42x56 is sitting atop of the rig.
Looks remarkably similar to your new rifle, although its hard to see well in that image.

Good shootin' - VH
