LongRifles Inc- Defiance 300WM AIAX

Gents,

One of my employees wanted to get into the LR game & asked me to get a build going for him, here it is.

Action- Defiance Deviant (these things are BAD ASS)
Barrel- Obermeyer 5R- MTU Contour 1-10"
Brake- Badger FTE
Trigger- Jewell HVR
Chassis- AIAX 300WM
Optics- NXS 5.5-22x56 NP-R1

Please Excuse my Cell Phone Pics- It seems I can't remember my camera on range days

I thought the Spiral fluting coming out of the AX handguard really looks good.

PS- Yes, those are Burris XTR rings. I forgot to order a set of quality rings & these are the only ones I had on hand that were tall enough to clear the AX chassis. They WILL be replaced shortly.

Very nice! I love the look of the chassis and the thin helical flutes. Is that cerakote? What color? I see you have some empty brass laying on the ground.... how does she shoot?

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

Believe me, the flutes look WAY better in person.

That is Graphite Black CeraKote, very sexy finish.

She's a heavy pig but recoil is VERY mild. Factory 190grain GMM is rocking ~1/2moa.

Ive seen some other rifles with that graphite black cerakote and it is really growing on me. Hows the Obermeyer cleaning up? Mute question? It looks like a "snipers hide" rifle, but it doesnt have GAP stamped on it. LOL

I've got two other Oby's in 6.5 & 7mm. I can't complain. Besides, Boots is the "inventor" of 5R. He's probably forgotten more about building a barrel than most will ever know.

I've never owned a GAP, with the work Chad does, I doubt I ever will. It's nice to have a top tier gunsmith 90 minutes from my driveway.

No doubt about Boots, i have a pretty darn good smith about an hour away from me also, Nathan Dagley at Straight Shot Gunsmithing. I have seen some rifles that he has built and they are consistent 1/4 MOA shooters at 100 yards. I will be picking a rifle up from him on Wednesday, i will be sure to put a pic up.
