6x47 Lapua F-Class open rig

I dont really like to post pics of my guns for my own strange reasons but I am really pleased with this one. It is my new f-class gun to replace my old 6x47 lapua. You guessed its a 6x47 also. My old gun will serve as back up and as a loaner to try and get others involved.

My nephews helped my fireform my brass for my first match. They fired 65 rounds through it. They hit my 800 yard gong 61 times.....not bad for 13 and 9 years old. (I actually think they missed the gong on purpose the other 4 shots trying to hit an old rattle paint can that on the ground beside the gong) No first place finishes yet, but I got a couple of seconds.

It is a Bat action in a Robertson Composit stock with a 28 inch kreiger 1.25 straight 7.5 twist. I topped it with a 12x42BR nightforce. I shoot 115 bergers out of it at 3120ish using 42gr of VV560 and WSR primers.

That 6x47 Lapua turns in some pretty impressive numbers for such a small case with heavy bullets , and the barrel life he got out of the last one he built thats still competitive is amazing. If we could just scale this round up about 30% it would make an awsome LR hunting round.
