Re: Strait Shot Gunsmithing built 260 Rem

Well I finaly got this thing finished despite several setbacks and hold ups. here are the specs

Remington 700 SA fully blue printed by Nathen Dagley of Strait Shot Gunsmithing , fitted with an PTG over sized bolt with Sako extractor and that Nate fluted and tig welded the handel, the action is coated with KG Gunkote in black, the bolt shroud is a custom SS unit and the firing pin is one of Greg Tannels light weight pins with a tight fitting 22lb Wolff spring. All the bolt inside and out plus all internals were coated with Robar's NP3 process. The recoil lug is a holland unit thats pinned in place. I also fitted the action with a Wyatt's long mag box.
The barrel is a 27" Lilja 3 groove , 1-8 twist , #7 conture fluted and fitted with SSG's V-port brake and chambered in 260 Rem , minimum spec.
The stock is one of Joel Russo's A5L ADL configuration piller bedded with a 1.25" SS piller up front and 9/16" SS piller in the rear and glass bedded with Devcon Liquid Steel and fitted with an adjustable comb unit that I made and fitted myself. The stock was realy pretty before the neighbors lab pup chewed on it , so after alot of sanding and filling I thought it was best to paint it black , the paint is a spray on bed liner for trucks beds.
The scope is a 4-16x50mm Nikon Tactical mounted in Glenn Seekins's 6 screw rings and 20 moa base. The base and action were fitted with 8-40 screws.

This gun shoots several loads with the 140 A-max into the .3's and one into the .2's at a velocity of around 2800fps, the inital crono reading were off by nearly 100fps on the fast side. I haven't done any load development other than 4 loads of two differant powders with the bullet just seated to touch the lands , I'm sure that with a little more work I can get some very consistant groups in the lower .2's.
All the shooting was done off a great bench with a Rock BR front rest and rear bag. The recoil of this gun is just a little bump , tipping the trigger with out the gun touching anything the gun simply scoots back anout a 1/2" !!! , if I can train myself to keep my eyes open through the report I'm sure that I can spot hits at 100yds.

I want to give a special thanks to everybody here who helped me build this gun as "ALL" the parts were either bought or traded for from this web site clasiffides or built by a member here .

So how does dog taste. I would guess a freshly butchered lab pup would be pretty tender.

I would be interested in the details of how you installed the adjustable cheekpiece and where you got it, etc.
