Life happens. I've not been around much but for good reason. I have a a F.I.L. diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme. I'm ralleying funds for airfair for my wife and kids to spend time as it's running out fast. I've another 6.5-06 from this smith which I am keeping so I haven't lost all sanity.
When this settles and shakes out I'm sure I'll hit speed dial and order up another but for now this is where I'm at.
This is a custom built rifle. Designed around the hunting habits of the western states. It is also suited to longer range hunting is areas where it is possible.
The rifle is built on a Remington 700 long action which has been trued. Everything is precise and square. The bolt handle has a modified knob installed. It is a smidgen larger and longer than most for ease of operation while wearing gloves. The bolt itself has an Sako extractor installed for a more reliable extraction of a fired case. The barrel is a Stainless Steel Mike Rock 5R 8 twist at 26" with a custom break which reduces recoil about 70 %. All metal is coated in cerekote flat black. The barreled action is pillar and glass bedded into an HS Precision custom painted Hunter Stock in a BDL system.
The trigger is a Remington trigger which has been blue printed and set at @ 2 lbs.
I have less than 135 documented rounds fired and the barrel is barely broke in. With handloaded ammunition this rifle is sub minute of angle accurate and I have results of 100 yard groups measuring in the .3's and 500 yard groups measuring 2.5". I will include the most accurate load recipie with the sale of the rifle.
