6.5 SAUM build

Just got put together. Pierce action, Mullerworks bbl, Mcmillian A3 sporter stock, CSR mini muscle brake. Have 4 rounds down the tube so far and she seems to be breaking in nicely, this is my first run with a Mullerworks stick. Will Cerakote when it proves to be a shooter. Rifle weighs 8 lbs 4 oz with a leupy 4.5-14x50 and Talley rings.

I like the look of the A3 sporter stock. Plus, the bolt is on the correct side!

Re: 6.5 SAUM build

Ok. So found out it has potential. 30 rounds down tube now and it's shooting around 3150 out of a 24" tube. Below is a pic of a group shot today. This stock is not bedded yet and is running about .010" deflection. Time to tear down Cerakote and bed. We'll see how she finishes up. Weight scoped up came in at 8# 4oz

Re: 6.5 SAUM build

nice looking gun. I've got one in that caliber and it is a flat out deer killing machine.

The load is on the target. 65 grains big boy ( it's now called Ramshot Magnum) fed 215 and a 140 JLK. I'll be testing some 160 Matrix this weekend.
