6.5x285 Competition/Long Range Hunting

This gun is basically Brand New, built in 2006 by Bill Shehane, I specified it to be built just like the 6.5 that he uses for competition with one addition and that was a bipod mount so I could use this for varmint hunting. I put 42 rounds through it, 30 of those where breaking in the barrel as per Bills instructions down to the T. I have kept this gun immaculate in a humidity controlled case the whole time I had it. It has a Baityís 30" barrel, starts at 1 1/2" at the receiver then narrows down to 1 1/4" at the crown. It has a 12 1/2" pull, 8 1/2" barrel twist, and it has a 297 no turn neck so it can take different bullet sizes. It has a solid one piece Python receiver to hold the heavy barrel. I do not know the trigger pull but it is competition level, very light pull. The stock is laminated oak wood with a thumb hole for improved grip. I have rods, bore guides, and 10 of everything, i.e., brushes and bore punches for cleaning. I also have the recommended load Bill uses for this caliber. This system is ready to go, case included, scope not included. You get the gun, case, and all necessary cleaning supplies for $3,700.
