Pics of my 6.5 x 47 Lapua build

Well, I just received my custom 700 project. As if you couldn't tell from the title of this post, I went with the 6.5 x 47 Lapua. I just finished breaking the barrel in and have a 5 shot group within .25" I haven't even tried load development yet, and I'm not overly sure how much further I will try haha. This was done with 120 SMK's so I will most likely try a more "ballistic bullet" for hunting purposes.
Parts List:
Remington 700 Short Action receiver
Bolt fluted by Kampfeld Custom
Blueprinted by my gunsmith
Bartlein SS barrel finished to 26" with an 8 twist
Gunsmith did a great job of blasting the barrel and "scotch-briting" it for a nice stainless matte finish
McMillan A1-3 stock with 45% black/ 30% dark grey/ 25% white
Tubbs SpeedLock Firing Pin
Holland recoil lug
Williams complete bottom metal
Engraving done by Kampfeld Custom
Jewell trigger
Seamless muzzle brake
Leupold Mark 4 base
Leupold Mark 4 30mm rings
Leupold Mark 4 8.5-25x50 M1 with TMR
with Alumina flip up caps

Sorry it's a little blurry... When I get around to it, I will take a better picture!

Nice view of the spiral fluted bolt!

Seamless muzzle brake

6.5 x 47 Lapua!! And the gunsmith's stamp, he did a great job!

And this was my way of customizing this rifle just a bit more!

Hope you all enjoy!!

    I'm honestly not sure of the actual manufacturer. My smith, uses them exclusively and has been very impressed with them. So far, I'm as equally impressed! Sorry I can't give you a definite answer
