My 6.5 x 284

Well my gun is done and here it is:

This is my first custom rifle/build and it exceeds all my expectations. This build was a two part build as far as gunsmiths go. The gun was put together by my friend Rod Bryant of Bryant Firearms Repair and Trevor Rosencranse of Cloud Peak Gunworks (CPG). CPG chambered, crowned, and indexed the barrel. He installed the sako extractor, bolt knob, muzzle brake and applied the Cerokote. Mr. Bryant trued and blueprinted the action, glass bedded and free floated the stock, installed the trigger, base, rings, and optics. Both gunsmiths did an outstanding job and are masters of their trades. If someone is looking for a quality gunsmith for a rifle build, don’t hesitate to contact either of them.

Re: My 6.5 x 284

I was out hunting today, however, wasn't able to connect on a buck! Prior to leaving, I decided to shoot a rock @ 775 yds! Two shots, both hit on rock well under a MOA! Ill have to get back out and get some pictures! Really happy with this rifle!

That's awesome. I'm about to start a build on a rem 700 LA. I would be really happy if it turned out like yours.
