6.5-.284 Hoover

Complete rifle weighs 14 lbs. I have 236 rounds through the barrel. Rifle shoots very well. I get 2990 fps and SD of 5 with either A-max's or Match Kings. I don't shoot this much at 100 yards since it was built for long range but has proven to be a less than 1/2 m.o.a. gun. I built this back in 2006 for woodchucks. It has taken chucks out to 1100 yards. Has enough energy with 140g Hornady A-max or 142g Sierra Match Kings for deer size game out to around 800 yards. Would cost over $3,000 to build. Selling for $2,100. I'm only selling to finance another build.

That barrel looks like a mirror and stock looks like marble!

I prefer metal barrels and wood stocks myself!

Re: 6.5-.284 Hoover

The color is considered "Imperial" It is red/maroon and grey/black. Rifle is excellent for woodchucks out to over 1000 yards and carries enough energy using 140g bullets for deer size game to around 800 yards. Would possibly consider a Nightforce 8-32 x 56 NXS scope and some cash for trade.
