Re: McBros Tubb 2000 rifle?
Nice to hear from you. Give me a call or Ill try you later.
I got one of the first Tub 2000 in 6.5X284. Also I have the Accu-shot monopod on the back end on the sling swivel stud. It also has the Harris bipod, so it is very easy to shoot from the bench. I use Norma or Lapua brass for it. The Lapua tends to crack around the neck sooner than the Norma, but I got 10 loadings from them.
Its a nice shooting rig, but my biggest gripe, is the caliber or magazine length. The 6.5X284 with a 140 Sierra is to short overall length for the magazine. 2.825 OAL to feed from the magazine. I think 3.00 would be more ideal. Got over 2000 rounds through it and I plan to get a barrel in 260 for it with a muzzle brake. I use about 45 gr. of R-22 with the 140 Sierra and there is still alot of case capacity left. I think the 260 will be enough case capacity for the gun and you can seat the bullets out more.
They couple things I would like is a longer magazine, and for them to make it in a bigger bolt face. A 338 Lapua or 6.5 WSM Tubb 2003 would be nice.
