Re: 7 saum full custom mnt rifle

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.
