Well I have built myself a few rifles but this is that latest one. It is a .243-06 with a blown out case and 30 degree improved shoulder.
Here's the specs:
-FN commercial action
-Rock Creek #5 countour 1-8" finished at 26"
-Richards Microfit dual grip thumbhole stock
-Devcon bedded, pillared, and floated.
-Currently wears a Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40AO
The gun weights in at 11.5 lbs fully loaded.
Finally got a load that works.
First photo is of my 100 yard group, and the larger one is of my 550 yard group last weekend. I also went out today and shot 3 at 600 that went just over 2". I'm happy with it. I shot a doe about a month ago with it at 250 yards. This is my main coyote gun, and deer rifle when I decide to use it.
I'm shooting 105 A-max at 3,250 fps.
Maybe tomorrow, I'll get a current photo all finished up and wearing glass.
Here's the photo of the rifle finally done minus the hot blue. Mausers are nice for their bolt on stuff, but with this one, there wasn't really any bolt on anything I guess other than the rings and bases. It is nice to have many options to make your rifle the way you want it. This was my first experience with Rock Creek barrels and I am extremely pleased with how well it machined and especially its accuracy.
The second photo shows some of my fully formed .243-06 brass next to a .243 win case both loaded with 105 A-max.
