Here are a few pictures from my recent trip to AK. I took my newly minted Joel Russo creation on a ten day backpack hunt. Not everyones idea of a sheep rifle! Only three shots taken in AK were on the range in Fairbanks but I had 100% confidence if the right opportunity would have come up. Saw plenty of game, just not the right one to end a fantastic hunt on.
Some very lucky bulls. I had a tag burning a hole in my pocket but wasn't going to end my buddy's sheep hunt for less than a book 'bou.
And yes, she shoots as well/better than she looks! With MINIMAL load development it's shooting under .5moa and better when I do my part.
Russo stock,Stiller action, Benchmark barrel, vias brake, rem trigger/bottom metal, 8-32x NF w/ UL NF rings and ACI/level combo. Smithed by Bruce Baer in his 308 Baer chambering shooting a 180gr Accubond at 3350fps.
