Very nice weapon . I like the lines . I also built one the round is a bit short as to the 6.5 06 AI but there both winners I built mine on a choate varmint stock with a shilen barrel and a ss comp trigger 26 inch tube anda millet 6x25 x56 lrs scope 20 moa base
Went to the range the other day trying to get a few more rounds down my barrel (52 rounds). This was my 100 yard target which measured 3/8" or .375. I shot 2 other 5 shot groups @ 220 yards, both measured at about one inch. I think they could have been better, but I had a few operator errors! Lol! I was cleaning w/Bore Tech Carbon Cleaner between each group!
My load was:
Bullets: Berger 140 Grain Hybrid Match (.618 BC)
Brass: Lapua 6.5 x 284
Powder: 49 Grains - H4350
Primers: Federal 210 Match
Velocity: 2925 FPS
I added 1 MOA up and 1MOA Left from my last group. The wind and mirage were picking up greatly! First 4 shots were up and to the right. Next 4 shots were to the left. These 8 shots were fired somewhat quickly, long enough to pull the target down and back up again, and then reacquire my sight picture.
