6.5-.284 Sporter

Wow, now that I finally figured out how to post photo's I'll share some of my rifle builds and hunting photos. This is my personal 6.5-.284 Sporter. It's based on a blueprinted Remington 700 S/A, Shilen barrel, Richard Micro-Fit Straightline Thumbhole stock, Burris Signature Rings, and topped with a Sightron SII 6.5-20 X 50 scope. Rifle is incredible. I've taken numerous wood chucks with this now out to 900 yards and a deer this past fall at 799 yards. I'm mostly shooting the Hornady A-Max 140"s but it also like the 142 SMK's.

That's a nice looking rifle! How does it group at 100 yds? It looks as if it shoots well.

100 yard 3 shot groups are around 3/8". I'm more concerned with the SD which is 2.34 Shot strings are very consistent, making for very accuarte long range shots.
