first long range hunting build

im fairly new here so i though i would post pics of my first long range build. all work done by aj brown

260 rem
stiller action
sheilin #5 select match 1-8 twist 26 inch
badger dm
manners stock
uso rings
rifle basix trigger
triad large stock pack

as far as optics im still on the fence. iso far ive had a falcon menace, nf br, swarovski scope. i bought the falcon to see if i like ffp before dropping a couple grand on one. if i like ffp ill get a uso if not ill get another nf.

i dont have any super tight groups to show yet. i have only shot it about 50 times so far. give it a week or so and i hope to have good group pics

mcs-t stock. i should be shooting it this weekend and ill give a update. i could not get 130vlds close enough to the lands to work (i think thats why they didn't work) i just got some 140 amax bullets to try. i liked 142 smk but i didn't want to hunt with them

Re: first long range hunting build

i tried 140 amax bullets yesterday. id say it likes them pretty well. i usually dont do 3 shot groups but this is early load development so im just looking for my max and getting a idea of velocity

best group is .3 outside to outside @ 110 yds

Re: first long range hunting build

just a update. i never do 3 shot groups, but this was the first stage of load develpment and i was mainly looking for my max and getting a idea of velocity. id say this is close to the sweet spot. the group measures .3 outside to outside @110yds
