Finished the carbon fiber tubegun!!! 338 lapua

I have been working on this idea for quite a while and have finally finished it.
The parts
Stiller tac338 action
Bottom metal is from Gary Eliseo
Barrel pac-nor 29" chambered in 338 lapua
Magazine is CIP length accurate-mag
The stock is pretty much all woven carbon fiber.
It has been a lot of work but I am really happy with the way it has turned out.
I have just test fired it and should get a chance to really stretch it out this week.
Overall weight 13lb 13oz ready to go. Rifle only is just under 12lb
I put this scope on it just untill my new vortex scopes arive. Should be any day.

Man, that is a really good looking rifle---looks like there is alot of work in it.
Better not show that photo to Feinstein or you'll be on the ban list............

Re: Finished the carbon fiber tubegun!!! 338 lapua

Today I took my lunch hr. and ran 25 minutes up the hill to go shoot this thing. It is absolutely pouring out. So I grabbed a tarp and my rifle and a couple rounds. I just couldnít wait! I got there ran up and set the target at 100yards, (couldnít see 200 yards) ran back, threw out the tarp, grabbed my rifle and backpack for a rear bag. I laid down and fired 3 rounds pretty fast. I could see my heart beat in the scope but I was getting soaked and had to go back to work. So here is the target. I think itís pretty promising considering the circumstances the dot is just over 1/2". Canít wait to get it back out.
