Once again our highly skilled and extremely talented gunsmith and Australian Commonwealth Olympic champion shooter Geoff Grenfell cleaned up the entire show at Rosedale this weekend in F Class standard with a score of 298 out of 300.
This is a great testimony of Geoff's skills in building a match winning combination rifle with a Lawton action coupled to a Benchmark barrel .
In fact all events won either sported a Lawton action and / or a Benchmark barrel.
Not a bad compliment to pay in anyone's language.
There was no mention of any other so called quality actions and barrel combos winning anything.
Geoff has nearly finished building my 284 Winchecter F Class open rifle based on Lawton action with a Benchmark barrel due to be picked up this coming Friday, incidentally just in time for my birthday.
Looking forward to picking up my top class match winning rifle.
My second rifle a long range outfit is also being built by Geoff on a Lawton action coupled to a Lawton barrel is two weeks behind the 284 in arriving.
No doubt that one will also be a superb shooting rifle.
More on that later down the track.
I only seek the best from the best and have it built by the best...............the records are there and they speak for themselves .............there is no other option
As you already know I picked up my latest 338 build from Geoff last Friday and man does this thing shoot.
I am in the process of "running it in" and it is shooting groups at well under 1 inch at 300 yards for starters and that is only after 21 shots.
How good will it get but I am positive it will be a tackholer with that Premier Reticles scope doing the optical work.
What a fantastic scope it is.
Although I've only shot it at 300 yards I put the Premier scope well ahead of my March and NightForce scopes.
I am just so pleased with Geoff's outstanding work that I will be selling both of my Accumarks in 30-378 & 338-378 as complete outfits along with their NF scopes as "ready to go" outfits.
As you have witnessed both of these Accumarks are 1/2" grouping rifles.
It's just that I can't have 4 long range rifles at the same time.
Will keep the 284 and the latest 338 (both Grenfell builds) as this is all I need.
So if you know of another home for these Accumarks then please send me a PM.
