Best mistake I've built

Fella's you ever get an itch and scratch it? this is what I did, I was looking for a long range deer rifle (now long range around my parts is maybe 800) and didn't want it to feel like I was a pack mule so something on the lighter side. This rifle was going to be a 280 Rem but we found a 284 Win reamer and thought hey this could be fun! chambered and reamed the throat to take the 162 A-Max at a COL of 3.100" got with McGowen for the barrel and the action is from my first build a 308 that I finally shot the barrel out, it's a Yugo Mauser action, the stock well I got with Boyds and a few days later had it in hand. Scope base is a +20 MOA from Ken Farrell and I went with Warne rings, I had a Nikon 6-18 on the shelf so it found a new home.

Hope you fella's like it got a little creative on the barrel during the bluing process and I think it turned out well. Later,




Here's the barrel treatment I was talking about, kinda cool huh?



Hope you guys like it, it's not a super mag capable of taking game at 2000 yards but it fits my needs pretty dang great. Have a good one fella's. Later,

Kirk

    Takes a lot of practice to do perfectly but that is just the plastic protection that the tube is in when it comes from the maker. Just bead blast over it. Done quite a few that way..

    Yep Boss you would be right! polished the barrel a bit then blast with light media and walla you've got some cool little patterns, now Boss I was goig to sell the idea for a limited time of $19.95 + S&H so much for that idea now

    Thanks fella's it's by no means perfect but hey neither am I, again thanks for the good words. Later,
