My New 270 AM

Here's pictures on my new 270 AM Extreme Sportter that Kirby has built me. Went out to fireform some loads, 92 gr 872 with 130 gr NBT and it shot great at 200 yds, even with this really light load. I'm sure the gun shoots better than I can. Bull is 1 1/2 inches. Can't wait to get the barrel fully broke in and start shooting real loads with fireformed brass.

McMillian Stock, Lilja 30in barrel, Holland Muzzelbreak, Basix Trigger, etc, etc.. etc....

Thanks Kirky, I love the gun so far!

Roy, yes it's a #7 contour. My wife saw me taking pictures of the gun and said, not another gun????? Try to explain to a woman that it's a very special gun, Ha!

Beautiful Rifle! What's that pretty thing weigh? I really like the look of that rifle. That's pretty close to what I had in mind for my .270AM. Thanks for posting.
