Saturday morning I decided to load up some rounds with
RE 10X. Well, it didn't take me long and I worked up to 33.5 grs. of reloader 10 with the 55gr. Nosler BT molly coated. Rem.7.5 primers and Lapua 6mmbr cases.I then shot these four groups,two at 100 yds. and two at 300 yds.
Conditions~ -5 degrees F. wind gusting from 3-7 MPH. from
2 o'clock position and overcast. I also cronyed the rounds with my pact crony at 3930 average muzzle velocity with an E.S of 11.8. This load did show some signs of presser on the primers but was easy extracting and there was no ejector marks on the cases. Please don't start with this load and I may need to back down for a summer load. needless to say I was very pleased. and am very confident this will make someone an awesome varmint rifle. Due to an e-mail I got from someone on 6MMBR.com I am lowering my price to <font color="red">$1050 and I will also include 50 rds. of ammo if the buyer is interested.</font> I am only interested in my customers 100% satisfaction and in no way want to overprice my products. If you were to build something with all the customizations this rifle has, using all new components it would be running around $1600. Again I never expected to get that from it. I will also add if the customer is not 100% satified with this rifle I will take it back (in the same condition it was received in) for a total refund. I like to keep things in the open. This is what the guys

$1,250 for a reworked Stevens? With a used barrel and other takeoff parts? Seems about $500 too high.
$200 for the action, $150 for a takeoff bbl, $150 for a takeoff stock, that's $500 in parts. Add in the work you did for another couple hundred...
You can buy a brand new Savage 'F' class rifle for $900...
Good luck getting your price, but I think you're gonna be disappointed.

two groups @ 100yds. the one on the left is a 3-shot group measuring .260 center to center and the one on right is a 5-shot measuring .475. I feel the rifle could even hold tighter than this as I was holding no steadier than these groups. I had no cradel on the front rest and this portable shooting bench is a little on the flimsy side. I did change mechanical point of impact from group one to group two on both the 100 and 300 yd. targets.
two groups fired @ 300yds. one on the left is a 3-shot group measuring 1 inch and the one on the right is a 5 shot group measuring right at 1-1/2 inches. the wind was gusting on this one.
