Re: New .338RUM pack rifle

Please post pics along with performance, weight of the finished rifle, & your final cost. I'm looking towards a similar build for .338 cary rifle & I would rather learn all I can before I order anything!

Thanks!

    Well I managed to get some photo's of the rifle. Hope you like them.

    The rifle weighs in at about 9lb, so much better to pack than my 14lb Edge rifle.
    The barrel is a Pac-nor #4 profile and 26.5" long plus brake.
    The Remington 700 action has been trued and original trigger lightened to 2lb.
    A .320" recoil lug was fitted.
    Picatinny rail is a seekins with #8 size screws fitted.
    Burris medium height Tactical rings. Will get some lower ones next week as these are a bit too high.
    Bushnell 6500 scope in 2.5-16x44 mil dot reticle. 0.28 MOA clicks.
    Brake is a Defensive Edge with the thread opened up to 9/16"x24.
    Stock is a Boyd's and will most likely be replaced with a Manners MS-T next year when funds permit.
    The recoil pad I just replaced after I took the photo's with a Limb-saver but it needs to be ground down to fit better.
    Cost was about AU$1500

    Will test fire it tomorrow and see how she shoots.

    I can tell you it was brutal to shoot with that pretend butpad and no scope or rings. It will make a great stalking rifle with plenty of snot on each end to tell you it has gone off. All i would do is bed the rifle and squirt some paint on it and that is one hell of a stalking rifle for anything in Australia including bufalo's with the correct projectile.

    Hey Bill,
    Notice the slip on kick pad............I put it on just for you. I know how much you like them. LoL..... Will put a few rounds through it today if it stops raining. See how she shoots.

    Did Ok a Rosedale yesterday at 1000 with my 24" barrel in .308. Right up with the top spastics. Surprised a few.

    Great looking rifle. If it wasn't destined for a stalker, I would shoot the barrel in a red to match the stock and leave it alone.
