ive been working on a 358bfg for some time and im almost there.
trued win 70 wssm action
#5 shilen select match barrel 26inch with 11 degree crown
factory trigger tuned to just over 2lbs
20moa base (came with the gun will be replaced)
swarovski z5 3.5-18x44 ballistic turret (on order)
i had to sand out most of the old bedding to make room for the heavier contour stock. hind sight being 20-20 i probably should bave gone with a #4 contour. as it sits it in pics wieghs 10.5lbs. with the swarovski finial weight will be about 11.5 lbs
the 20moa base is what came with the rifle i bought (25wssm) i think ill need to replace it with a 0moa base to get the scope a little lower for proper cheak weld. i think with a new base and possibably a stock pack it sould line up well
here are some pics im still trying to decide on weather or not to add a muzzle brake
. a break would be great for the range when im wearing hearing protection but horrible for the woods when im not.
i will say this was my first bolt action build that i did not hired done and it was a great experiance.
now on to paint. im thinking ill do a sandy collor stock with a black breakup pattern and green barreled action
