Re: New rig, 375 Cheytac :)

yep, wild dog built the rifle.

weight i dunno yet... and i havnt shot it yet either, still waiting on dies, still deciding on a bipod.

wild dog has test fired it, said the recoil was very mild, "a pleasure to shoot" he said " the muzzle blast is something else tho". The muzzle brake i sourced thru a local guy from the states, RL Fisher makes them for 50BMG rifles and is considered one of the most efficent brakes you can get. The backward angled ports make the muzzle blast and concussion quite severe however. The brake is meant to fit on a 1-1/4in muzzle diameter and required some extra work to get it fitted for me.

ill get back to you all with the weight and finishing touches once its finished and had the chance to shoot it some too.

At worst, the 350gr SMK has a higher BC than the 300SMK and im sure will make a very lethal hunting bullet @ 3200+fps out to some really stupid distances... So even if we dont get any better bullets than this, it dont bother me in the slightest If we do get better bullets than this, then its all icing on the cake...

ok, the rig weighs 9.5kgs or 21lbs ready to shoot including NF scope but without bipod.

The gun is painted with ceracote, its a custom paint option offered by wild dog.

Its for long range hunting of "any game" and ultra long range target shooting.

With that brake and 21# weight it should be a joy to shoot. Make sure you give us range reports when you have it up and running.
