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.?
