    I have for sale my personal .260 Rogue improved, which is a .260 Rem. with a 37 degree shoulder. Here are the specs on the rifle.

    Savage model 16 receiver completly blueprinted
    bolt helical fluted and oversize bolt handle
    rifle basix trigger set to 8 oz.
    Ken Farrel 20 min base bedded to receiver for stress free fit
    Sharp shooter recoil lug
    28" Broughton 5C 1 in 8 twist barrel with helical flutes
    11 degree crown.
    This barrel is set up to use match rifle sights, but there is also a thread cap on the muzzle end which matches muzzle contour(you can see in pixs)
    McMillan A-5 stock epoxy and pillar bedded to receiver
    intregal thumb wheel cheek piece and accessory rail
    The colors are 60 tan, 20 black and 20 O.D green
    The barreld action is teflon coated with a satin black finish.
    I have 700 rounds through this barrel and it is shooting extremely well!
    The target in the picture below was at 600 yds. The X ring is 3" the 10 ring is 6" all 20 shots are in 6" with 14 in the x ring. This group was shot prone off the bipod. The pictures of the steel target are also at 600 yds. There is 4 shots, although it looks like 6. The two really shiney indents were just splashed out as the paint was still wet. the other 4 impacts left no cratering but you can see the little grey dots. This steel plate is made out of AR400.
    I am selling this rifle as I am currently investing in new equipment for my shop and have a couple other personal rifle projects going. This rifle shoots as good as any I have built. I will also include the dies that I use and load info.
    I am asking $1500 for the rifle - (not including the scope,bi-pod and hand stop and the block or the front sight)
    To clarify things, the black thread cap that matches barrel contour for the muzzle end and the stainless thread cap with the level are included in the price. I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

    What can I say? I had forgotten about that.
    Here's what happened.
    When I write the program I always have the reamer print copy right beside me to copy off and "make sure I get the spelling right" I learned my lesson.
    I guess I can only blame myself. But from the picture below you can see what happened. I will be correcting the problem as my engraving is only .003 deep.

    Nate,
    I thought that 260 Rouge was a good name. It is a good looking rifle.

    That just makes the gun more valuable. It truly is one of a kind!

    Very nice looking rifle Nate. This is one of the downsides of being up here in Canada. I can only look at these great looking guns for sale
