6.5x47 Lapua build

Well I wanted to build a nice rifle for the local steel matches and something I could go smoke ground pigs. the last one I built a few weeks ago was such a shooter, i figured I give the 6.5x47 a run for the money. I didnt have a chance yet to coat it with OD green moly resin, but that will be next week when I get back from shooting ground pigs. I finished up the rifle with the Badger bottom metal since it came in this morning, and ran out to the range to check a few loads. So far it seems to like 4350 and match kings. Ground pigs beware

    Excellent looking gun! Is that an HS Precision stock? I haven't seen very many that style.

    The stock is a HS Precision PST083, I believe it one of there newer designs. Its a nice stock if you have small/medium hand size

    Great looking rig, nice list of components. It looks like spiral fluting on the barrel, yes?

    It is Spiral fluted, I only do this on my personal stuff since some patent offical was to lazy to open a machinest book and see that process has been around for decades.

    Yup, I think ER Shaw holds the patent.

    that 24" barrel should make it nice and manageable. what bullets do you intend to use for varmints?
