Some Striker pics....

Since the Strikers have been mentioned earlier...thought I'd post a few pics of my guns.

First pic of of the Super Striker. It started life as a .223 Rem but I swapped the bolt head and added a Shilen 17" heavy tube chambered in 7mm-08. I took this deer at 270yds with a 154gr SST.

This pic is of the three together. Top is the 22-250...started life as a 22-250 but I added a factory varmint weight barrel that was chopped to 15". Optics are Burris 3-12x32 w/ fine plex and tgt turrets. Middle is the 7mm-08 w/ 7X Burris (fine plex and tgt turrets). Bottom is the newest...plain jane 7mm-08 Striker (just bought it used) w/ a Tasco Pro Point installed.

Last pic is of the boring 7-08 Striker in its current form. Rebarreled and swapped bolt head to a 270x243 WSSM wildcat. Bbl length is 15" and is a Douglas. I've shot this tube before on another action and it did very well. 140's will go around 2600-2700fps. Optics are again Burris 3-12x32 but it just has the regular knobs and heavy reticle...hopefully that will change at income tax time! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Those are some nice looking rigs. About how much does the 7-08 with the 17" Shilen weigh all decked out?

Ignorance can be treated with education, sadly there is no cure for stupidity.

Winmagman....not really sure what the Shilen tube'd gun weighs in at...never really checked.

Hshunter...the 7mm-270WSM in an XP-100. My two loads are both using H4831SC and Fed 215's. Load #1 is a 162gr A-MAx at 2825fps. Load #2 is a 160gr NAB at a little over 2700fps.
