Both of those rifles are great looking rigs. The 300 RUM is virtually identical to a build I've been thinking about.

Does the 9 lbs of the 300 RUM include all the items listed below? Also, those ABS barrels are interesting and I was wondering how you like it and if the weight difference in the two rifles is mainly due to the ABS barrel?

trued 700
oversized handle
abs carbon barrel 26 inch
nathans titanium break
mcmillan htg stock
nxs 5.5x22x50 npr1
nightforce light rings
seekings base over sized screws
defensive edge cosine level
timmney trigger
harris swivel bipod with podlock
eagle stock pack


Thanks,
JB99

Re: SSG long range hunter in 300RUM

yes this rifle weights right around 9 without bipod as for this rifle it is the most accurate rifle that i have owned. i was shooting with the builder the other day and he was able to see it shoot 1/4moa and i went shooting the other day and shot these groups. i should sell this rifle or i might need another barrel soon.

these are 600 yard groupssecond pictures shows another group lost bullets to the wind but elevation was around an inch





these were the same day but at a 1000 yards

Do you know what barrel maker was used for the liner of the ABS barrel?

Nice guns. Any chance they make those stock pouches in a LH model?
