Re: ingredients for success

Congratulations, greatlooking rig. The camo and barrel fluting came out really good. I guess the NF will be going on it pretty soon. How thick is the recoil pad?

adjustable LOP before the recoil pad. Very nice rifle, you gotta love the Brux barrel fluting.

Re: ingredients for success

depending on the throat, do not be afraid to try the Berger or JLK 130s. Lots of guys having great luck with both and more MV.

I am building a 6.5x47 throated for the 130s now.

thanks. The camo is molded in GAP from Mcmillan.

The nightforce is on, mounted it today at the range. With my 5 diamond target at 100 yards, I peeped down the bore and centered it on the target, then adjusted the scope to center. First shot was within 2" of the bullseye. Who says you need a tool to boresight!!

The recoil pad is minimal, but there's really no recoil to speak of anyway. There are several spacers like blipelt mentioned, for adjustments. I'll play with those later I guess. Today was all about break-in.

The fluting is sweet looking for sure. This is the 1st rifle in Sacramento I've seen with this fluting. I can see that keeping it clean will require some ingenuity, maybe a silicone spray & sponge, or similar. I'm open to ideas, but thinking that a pile of Q-tips would certainly work, except it would drive me nuts...

You're probably right. Jerry Newman, the gunsmith who built the rifle, also highly recommended the berger 130's. I've got 1000 of the scenar 139's so I guess once those are gone I can try the others

Re: ingredients for success

I use a soft bristled toothbrush for my flutes. I have the same setups on two of my longrange rifles. Mcmillan adjustable a5 and interrupted flutes on my Brux barrels. I love the look of them.
