    I have a custom 243 AI that I am looking to sell. It is a John Beanland built custom gun. This thing shoots great - It just doesn't get any love at my house. I am a .25 cal guy.

    I have this gun running 3250 with no pressure signs. It has 323 rounds through it mostly to fireform brass.
    specs are:
    surgeon 591 243AI
    Jewell trigger
    Krieger 23" 1X8 spiral fluted
    Mcmillan A5 painted Black - std fill - Pillars installed and bedded in marine tex
    HS precision BM with one 4 round mag
    148 pcs lapua 1X formed brass
    200 105 AMAX
    ~75 107 Sierra HPBT (moly)
    redding dies

    Possible trades would be a Rem 700 SA or LA .473 BF for a 257AI project or good AR10 (no DPMS) +/- cash

    will sell outright for 2950 + shipping
    I will not sell dies, brass or bullets seperate until gun is sold. I will update post if that occurs - please don't ask.

    Jon Beanland is an incredible smith! Highly recommend. This rifle will be a shooter.

    I own some of his stuff.... :)

    bump.

    I would also consider a Swarovski Z6 scope as partial trade or NXS 5.5-22X56.

    Just some close ups.

    This is pretty much what I wanted to build but I was going to use a 7 twist for the 115 bergers Did you ever try the 105 Bergers?

    I have. They shot well. I have run the 105 AMAX, VLD, Nosler and 107 sierra's. I stuck with the 107's because they were easy to come by. Now the AMAX are available I would likely switch back.

    What's on top I/E scope, rings, bases? I was looking at the "semi custom" 243wssm that is posted Feb.17th also. It has a AVS 5 R rockcreek carbon wrapped barrel 1-8 twist? Any pro's con's regarding his gun or caliber? I think it's on page 10 or 11?
