    Travis of R BROS Rifles builds a very accurate rifle. This is the third rifle I have from Travis, and they have all been tack drivers.
    This is a 5 shot group I shot on 5/25 in a 20-30 mph crosswind. This was with virgin brass, and no load developement.
    Bassically, Travis sent me a dummy round and load data, which he had done before sending the rifle. I don't know to many smiths that do that. I loaded up some rounds to sight in my scope. after a few shots to get on paper, I then shot the above group.

    And here is a picture of the rifle. Weighs 12.4# as shown with NXS scope.
    Thanks for the build, Travis

    Broughton barrel, 9.3X contour as per R BROS, fluted
    R BROS custom action
    DE brake
    Jewell trigger
    HS stock, for now
    DE adj cheek
    40 MOA rail, puts the NXS bottomed out at 100yard zero, so no Zero Stop needed.

    That's a fine looking rifle!! I know my r-bros edge shoots under 1/2 moa when I do my part. Travis does indeed build very acurate rifles.

    Jim is out of computer range for a couple days I believe.....

    I believe he told me that group was at 100yds from a bipod and rear bag prone. He is using Redding dies for his Edge.

    Mike,
    Just send the rifle back over here...the sun is out now for a couple days:D

    Awesome rifle Travis I was wondering how long are your build times usually?
