Re: Totally Over My Head

Pictures! They may be too big, so if I need to re-size them let me know.

6BRX and the 6.5-284 side by side:









6.5-284 is the big beast with Lapua on the side.

Next up is the .308:

Re: Totally Over My Head

X3MHunter, How much does the 6.5 x 284 weigh, what length barrel does it have on it and what twist is it? Interested in the specs on the 6.5. That looks like a great experience for slafav. You guys can have a great time with your monthly shoots. Thanks to all of you for sharing it. This has been one of the best threads I have had the opportunity to follow.

It weighs 19 pounds, I'm going to add 3 more pounds to get it up to the 22 lb. limit allowed in F-Open Class.

It has a 30" Krieger 1:8 twist bbl. I shoot 139 Lapua Scenars which shoot 3/4" 5 shot groups at 300 yards using H4350.

The action is a Lawton 7500 with RBRPLE (right bolt, right port, left eject).

The stock is a LowRider Stock by Richards Custom Rifles.

The scope is a 12-42X56 Nightforce BR held in place by Badger rings on a Lawton 20MOA base.

The rifle was built by Mark Pharr of Tumbleweeds custom rifles who is a friend of mine and happens to be a great gunsmith.

Slafav, I'll let you know when we are having the next shoot, it will be fun like always. Also, did you take any pictures of my 300 Win.?

Re: Totally Over My Head

Plenty of people use the .308 for target shooting at 1000 yards. There are rifles that are better at that extended range, but for an out of the box solution, you might consider that Savage rifles. They have a great reputation as being accurate out of the box, have a good stock, trigger and can be set up for less than $1500 including a decent scope.
