Re: Let's see your Varmit rifles !

I've got a couple of Varmint/Predator rifles, but here's the latest addition to my family.













Bushmaster lower with Magpul tactical stock (adjustable cheek piece and LOP), Sierra Precision thumbrest grip, RitePull grip extension (puts the trigger on the pad instead of the knuckle), Jewel trigger (of course). ASI custom .223 upper 22' UMSS fluted barrel, 1-8 twist, chromed bolt and carrier. Supposed to (gauranteed to) shoot sub 1/2 moa (3 shot) groups with certain Federal Premium factory ammo. Leupold Mark 4 LRT 8.5-25X-50 with TMR in a Nightforce 20 moa Unimount.

The scope is temporary until I get loads developed/tested. Then it's gonna have a NF 2.5-10 compact with MOA reticle and ACD on it.

I just got the scope mounted last night, hope to find out soon how well it really shoots. The test target showed 3 shots touching each other at 100 yds. Supposedly a .175" group at 100 yds.....?? Wish me Luck!!

Good looking rig. Can you drop me an email when you get a minute? I may get to Newcastle this spring and wanted to talk.

Cool looking rifles! What are they? Can you tell us a little about them?

Re: Let's see your Varmit rifles !

Here are the light and heavy of it. A Remington VSSF in 22/250,and a Tikka T3 Stainless in 22/250 as well. The little NEF .223 is about as handy a walking hogger as there ever was. Shoots quite well actually. I got lucky.
