    About 10 years back I designed a 338/8mm Rem Mag variant that I just never ended up using due to old neck injuries that have plagued me daily. In fact I only got around 60 rounds through it and it just sat in favor or my deer rifles. Now that I'm selling the rifle I just had Rick Freudenberg up here in Everett, WA rechamber it to 338 Rem. Ultra Mag so the new owner wouldn't need to deal with a wildcat. Rick has a pretty solid reputation for building accurate rifles for both hunting and competition and was recently listed as one of the top 10 gunsmiths in the country in 1 of the recent mags I guess. He also was mentioned in relation to the 6.5-284 in the Nosler reloading manual. Anyway, here is the specs on the rifle I'm selling.

    338 Rem Ultra Mag, stainless action and Lilja 27" fluted barrel
    Mcmillan/Sendero stock with the aluminum bedding block
    Tubb recoil lug
    Action trued
    Tubb Speedlock firing pin/spring kit
    Both action and barrel have been Cryo'd
    Stock/Action were Defcon bedded
    KDF-type muzzle brake
    Remington trigger, reworked and set at 2.5 pounds (weight as I recall)

    The rifle should make some really beautiful elk or grizzly bear medicine and is very pleasant to shoot, but but realistically I had to come to terms with the fact my neck injuries would make it really tough to hike that far into the mountains to go for elk (and I'd sure never be able to get one out), so all I need to shoot these days is my .260.

    I think I had about $2500 total into the gun (not including the recent rechambering of course) and really have no idea what to ask. So I'm putting it up at $1200 with the rifle, Leupold rings and bases long soft nylon case, Dewey cleaning rod, jags, bore guide and anything else .338 I still have around. Feel free to email me for pictures or receipts for documentation of the parts the rifle was built with. Oh and I also have a Leupold 4.5-14 x 40 with the mil dot reticle in excellent condition already mounted on the rifle that could go with the rifle for another $375.

    Thanks,
    Beartrack

    If you are interested in a partial trade, I am very interested. I have a set of spacemaster big eyes listed below.

    I would take both the gun and the scope and give $750 diff with each paying the shipping.

    PM me with your email

    Thanks for the interest Jason! Actually I may just hang onto it if the purchaser of the rifle doesn't buy it with the rifle - but if I decide to sell it, I'll contact you first.

    Thanks,
    Beartrack

    Thanks BH, just looking to sell at this point - I actually bought a new spotting scope 2 weeks back. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif Thanks though!

    Have a good one,

    Hi Jeffbird,

    I just sent a response in email along with 3 photos, let me know if there are other angles I can provide. The rifle with scope, etc. is about 10 pounds by my scale. Twist rate is as I recall 1 in 10 or 1 in 11, but I can verify this tomorrow night when I have access to my cleaning equipment. The rifle originally was a Sendero before all the modifications started and the pictures will show the stock in greater detail than I can describe here. The files are a bit large because I wanted to leave them in full resolution so you can see a greater level of detail when zooming in.

    Hope that helps,

    Beartrack

    Sorry for the delay, been busy selling a home and doing some work for Safari Club Int. locally. I've sent both of you the pictures and I'm located in Washington state. Have a good one! Also I sent my cell in the email in case either of you have any questions.

    Thanks,
    Scott

    Dropping the rifle a hundred dollars to $1100 , or $1475 with the 4.5-14x40 Mil dot Leupold scope and of course still including the various accessories and soft case.

    I also may have a New Zealand gold medal size Red Stag hunt coming up for sale soon that would occur in mid-March, right at the beginning of the roar! Email me if interested and I'll send along some details. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    Thanks,

    Scott, Thanks for the pics. Did you ever get the barrel twist? Also, barrel contour?
