Re: The ultimate Idaho weight \"smokin fur\" rifle

Thanks guys,

The brake is one of mine, I designed it especially for the large AM. The stock is an HS Precision for a 700, but with some serious mods. I had the front action screw hole relocated in the action to match a 700's, this allows me to use Remington bottom metal. Using a solid bottom action and BDL bottom metal leaves a storage space where I leave a set of foam ear plugs, a drop chart, 2 nickels, and a 2032 battery all in a small ziploc bag. This was also the reason it has a recoil lug like a Remington. I wanted to rifle to look fairly main stream for the most part, while it is visually appealing it was designed purely for function. I will be building one exactly like it for myself. The only thing I might do differently is sand blast grey the flutes instead of making them black.

There is something terribly disturbing about the "elks view" [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img], but the rest is pretty darn sweet.

BB,

The 2 nickels are for the "coin slots" on the cheekpiece, you may need them in the field to lower and remove the bolt for some reason. I figured that would get someone.

Re: The ultimate Idaho weight \"smokin fur\" rifle

i'm assuming that the extra slots/baffles, 5 total, in the brake make it more efficient? does that 4th and 5th baffle really reduce any more recoil? sweet looking rig!

Dave,

I changed to many things at once to tell for sure but it works better than the 4 port on my 338 Edge. I do believe that the big difference is the baffle width in the first few ports. That being said the 4th and 5th ports build residue and have a blast pattern just not nearly as much as the first 3.
