All work was done by Chris at LongShot except the new coat of Cerakote (Joe at LTM) and the bolt stop mod (GAP).
Remington M700 short action w/ .473 bolt face
Custom bolt (built by LSR) w/ Badger knob
GAP Bolt Stop Release
Factory trigger set at approx 2.75 lbs
Holland lug pinned to action
Broughton 22" 8-twist 6-contour
Brand new coat graphite black Cerakote
Includes magazine, follower, and spring. Also includes a 20MOA Badger alloy rail (also Cerakoted). No BM or stock.
The bolt job is tight. . .feels like a custom action. I've fired exactly 315 rounds (thought it was at 110, but double-checked and confirmed). This barrel shoots the 107gr SMK's relatively well. The Berger 95gr VLD's are phucking scary accurate.
Paid approximately $3000 for the entire project (stock, BM, bedding included). Minus the stock and such and figuring half the gunsmithing charges, I'll ship the barreled action and parts for $1600.
Chris did an amazing job on this rifle. I just don't need a .243 Winchester for my applications.
Will also entertain a partial trade for a Remington M700 LTR in .223. Just need the barreled action and accessories. Don't need the stock and BM.
I also have two boxes (one full, one partial) of 6mm Berger 95gr VLD's, approximately fifty pieces of Winchester .243 new brass.
Also. . .Redding Competition seater, Redding Type S FL die, and a Hornady neck die. A few bushings for the S type as well. Another $100 gets you the whole kit.
