Dave,

This rifle was set up to be relatively light weight and medium range say out to 800 yds.
It weighs a shade over 8 lbs, and that's with a 3 lb Bubinga stock.

With the 22" barrel it's shooting the 180 Accubond at 3267 fps.

Accuracy so far has hung around .3" at 100 yards and 1.25" at 300 yards.
Not bad for the Accubond.

Bubinga is a West African dense hardwood, with a specific gravity of about .88.
It makes an excellent stock.
This particular piece is laminated, which makes it that much better.

    Now that's funny. If you like that plain old piece of Bubinga, wait until you see the one that I am making with highly figured, rare, Pomelle Waterfall Bubinga.


    Dave,

    Since I'm not a paid sponsor here, I don't think it's fair to talk about pricing.
    Shoot me a PM and we'll discuss it.

    What would a 30" barrel do with 208 grain A-Maxes? Enough to give the 338 Lapua a challenge at a decreased cost?
