    Borden Alpine 'Repeater' action, Bartlein 5R Cut Rifled Barrel - 1 in 8" Twist, 22.5" (700 Varmint Contour - Fluted by Bartlein) Jewell Trigger, Bell & Carlson 'Light Tactical' BDL Floorplate, Talley mounts (D&T for 8x40s), Weight per UPS scale 8.0 (rounds in .25 increments) Smithed by Don Geraci (Hall of Fame BR shooter). Reamer is one used for Silhouette shooters w/about a .100 shorter throat per Don. No turn, min Saami Spec. Round count (65 rounds). Rifle was tested for accuracy using new unfired Nosler brass, it shot 4 rounds (last 4 loaded I had left that day) of 140 AMAX into .196 using a 10x scope. Also shot a 5 shot group using new Nosler brass/140 Sierra Matchkings/powder measured, not weighed: 4 of 5 less than .5", total group about 5/8", not put a mic on it. There was no load work up. Lapua is now making/selling 260 stamped brass and promises the ultimate in 260 accuracy! This gun has outstanding potential with a little load work and a higher magnification scope. HSM, Black Hills, and CorBon mfg. Match grade ammo in 260 Rem and this rifle takes factory ammo. See (www.snipercentral.com/match260ammo.htm).
    Barrel break in procedure done as recommended by the barrel mfg. Bartlein Barrels, Inc. - Break In/Cleaning

    A work of art, any idea what speeds your getting out of the barrel?

    No sir, but my own experience shown the 6.5x55 having about 30 fps per inch reduction from 24 to 21" over a Chrony (and it's within 2 grains case capacity of a 260), so I am confident this will give within 40-50 fps of an identical 24" rifle.

    Speeds would be expected in the 2750-2800 range, or a tad more. Some are using RL17 which gives another 100fps or more. But no, never ran any over a chrony, sorry.

    One of my favorite shooting friends has several of Mr. on's builds. Mr. Don is a magician. I shot my best 800 yard group with a Don build.
