Hey Roy, it's a parts gun.

I found a early Remington 700 in 7mm mag at a pawnshop for cheap. Bought the Sendero Barrel on Snipers hide, and was given the stock.

Finally had a chance to wind it together the other weekend. I used a EGW 25moa base and a 10x mk4 LRT.

OPS inc Brake

Anyway, optics aside I needed to do this on the cheap. I think i'm into it about 500.00 less optics.

Matt

mhg,

Nice looking rifle and the price is nice too!
What size groups are you getting with the 225 gr AB and 96.0 grs RL25?

Re: 338 RUM data

That's my kind of thinkin'. I did the same thing but got a sporter weight new take off bbl from Kirby for 40 bucks. Had the Holland brake removed from the 338 Win bbl and put on the RUM bbl. She's sitting under a Weaver Tactical 4.5X14

Tim/TX has a Sendero 338 Edge bbl chambered by Shawn for sale but I'd like to "harvest" something with this setup before I try to make it any "bigger". I have 495 + 40 + 125 in ol' "Pink". Not nearly as purty as your's but she'll do for the hunt. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] It was a doityurselfer while the 270 AM was being built....

Thanks for the kind words.
I was just shooting 3 shot stuff behind the house. 100yd on the laser, off the bipod, 15kt wind I shot a .7.

Pretty informal, not alot of time and rain/cold etc

I know it will shoot better

Re: 338 RUM data

hey matt, glad to see you made it over here. that came out really nice.

if that shoots half as good as some of the firearms you put together, it should be scary accurate. hopefully i will get too shoot it before i deploy again.
