    I have decided to sell this rifle to fund my 375/408 cheytac project....I received this from Kirby about 2 months ago and have 30 rounds down the tube. The rifle shoots awesome and it was one that Kirby wanted to keep because he knew how it was going to shoot.

    Here are the specs:
    Nesika Model M
    McMillan A5 stock..50% forest green, 25% black, 25% woodland tan
    Lilja #8 32" barrel w/ heavy fluting 1-10 twist
    Jewell trigger
    HS detachable magazine
    Nesika 20MOA rail
    Kirby's PK muzzle brake
    338 Allen Xpress Hornady FL sizing die and Forster Ultra seater die
    100 rounds of brass.....70 formed by Kirby, 30 once fired

    Asking $3700 for the whole package shipped to the lower 48. I have more than that into it, but I would rather someone be able to use it than have it just sit in my safe. The buyer will need to provide a case for shipping the rifle, or I can get one for an additional charge.

    Travis,
    a couple of questions.
    What is the weight?
    COAL with the 300gr to fit the DMB system you have on it?
    How acurate is it ?
    How is recoil and muzzle flip, and can you spot your shots with it ?
    Thanks,
    JIM

    Jim,

    I ran the 300's at 3.675" OAL. This was just touching the lands. The mag box will only allow 3.70".

    Weight is 13.5lbs according to my bathroom scale. It is very well balanced with the longer barrel.

    Accuracy is really good....I only shot 3 shots on paper to get it dialed in before shooting long range....3 shots were well under the 1/2moa..closer to 1/4moa ctc. Shot it a ranges out to 1100 and had no problems hitting clay pigeons on first round hits.

    Recoil is very manageable, and you are able to spot your own shots easily at distance and even around 300yds. The PK brake is extremely effective.

    Thanks
    Travis

    On your 375/408 are you going to have Kirby build it, and what action are you going to use? Thanks Kyle.

    Kyle,

    I am going to either use a Lawton 8500 or 8000 action depending on if I want it heavy or light. The 8500 is pretty close to the BAT Model M most guys are using, only a little smaller in diameter. Cheytac uses them on their lightweight 408's and 338 LM's. I haven't decided yet on which version yet....I have my own 375/408 Improved reamer.

    What a dream rifle... The moneys in the bank, but I think it might lead to a divorce. So even though it is worth everthing you are asking, I can't bite. I am sure you will make someones hunting season when you find a buyer!!! Good luck with your new 375 project.

    I envision my rifle looking something like that whenever it is finished! Too bad it wasn't a lot less or I'd just see if I could get yours! REALLY nice rifle though, what velocity is the 32" getting you?
