My aim with this build was to get it as light as possible. It has the original factory barrel and the action has not been trued.
I fluted the barrel and got it threaded for a non-directional muzzle brake
. Bolt has been fluted and a light weight firing pin used. I made a carbon fibre stock for it (16.5oz). The scope is too heavy but the magnification is perfect, it is a Bushnell 6500 2.5 -16 x42 sitting in lightweight Talley one piece bases..
The bare rifle weight is 5lb 4 oz, and is 6lb 10 oz with scope and bases, no bipod.
Shoots 140 accubond around 3060 fps and 0.6 -1 MOA and the 162 a-max at 2870 at 1-1.25 MOA. The a-max load needs some tweaking.
