Well, that was built back in 2006. Going by memory: I got the rifle on sale at Bass Pro here in Cincinnati for $600 out the door. It was factory with a black plastic stock. I got the barrel from Dan Lilja. It was $310 shipped. I got the stock from HS Precision for around $250 or 300. I sent it to a guy in Utah from another hunting website forum and he charged about $125 to shorten the LOP and install the Pachmyer pad. I had engaged in a few conversations with Mickey Coleman in Alabama and decided to give him a try on the build: Coleman Rifles
I want to say I paid him around $500 to true the action, cut crown and chamber the barrel at the time and skim bed the action/bbl in the stock.
I paid about $50 for rings/bases and around $400 for the scope.
I am pictured with the rifle and my 2007 mule deer. That was the year I gave the rifle to my bud. I hunted Wyoming for pronghorn, filled 2 tags, got those hunts on video, then hunted CO for deer. I loaded 150 Btips and IMR4831 and right from the get go the rifle was a shooter. I left that ammo with them as well when I drove home from CO, leaving the rifle with them after I "test drove" it on 3 game animals in one season.
Adam, my friend, asked me what would be my "do-all" load for deer and elk with that rifle. I told him to use H4831SC and a 130 Barnes TSX and never look back. I will try to get a picture of his wife, the blonde in a few of the pics, and her #2 CO big horn ram. All of those CO critters you see fell to that load and almost all of the kills are on video. As you can see from the results, Adam has no intentions of changing the loads. He has a friend there in his home town that does his loading.
