James,
yes, the flutes in the barrel are also by me. The customer wanted a #3 contour with flutes so stainless was out of the question. I had a good discussion with one of the reps at Krieger and we both decided we would need to go with chrome molly. I did make a lead cast of the muzzle after I fluted it and pulled it through the barrel. It felt very consistant through and through so I did not add any lapping compound. I feel the rifle will indeed be a heck of a shooter and of course it has my 1/2moa guarantee. Krieger would not flute there #3 chrome molly due to their set up.

Thanks for all the kind words.
I will have to say the fella I built this rifle for is one heck of a shooter/reloader and definately picked some good components and options in this build.
This is the second rifle I built him, the first was similar only supporting a #5 contour in 6.5-06AI and he has shot several group in the 1's and 2's with a 400 yd., three shot group he could cover with a quarter.

Cheers,
Nate

James,
The gun weighs just over 7 lbs with mounts and rings. The barreled action is just over 4lbs 6oz. with the stock weiging 2lbs. 14oz.
The stock is definetly on the heavy side for an ultra light.

Nate

Unique! I like it. What technique did you use to 'decorate' the stock?

Nate, nice work!

What's the difference between the 260 Rogue and the 260 Improved?

Also what kind of load do you use with the Rogue and what ballistics are you getting?

tks!
