Pair Of Old School Aces

Just finished turning the screws on these two personal builds. Decided to go "Old Skool" and use Remington actions for a change. The Walnut stocked rifle is a 6x47 Lapua that I built to compete in a few PRS matches, and the Bubinga rifle is a .243 AI that I built for for my father to shoot for an upcoming PD trip.

6x47 Lapua, .271" NK
26" Benchmark 8 tw
Modified Badger DBM/AI mag
Jewell
Black Walnut A-5L
SB 5x25 PM II

.243 AI .275" NK
26" Kreiger 7.5 tw
Modified Badger DBM/AI mag
Jewell
Bubinga A-5L
SB 5x25 PM II

Initial load development put both rifles under one inch at 300 yards.

    Joel,
    The rifles are truly works of art. The word craftsman is justly used.

    Great work as usual! I personally would tweak those loads and get rid of that vertical...

    Love the wood on the 6/47! And the fluting on the 243!!

    Maybe you do have some aces up your sleeve...
