    Asking $1600 OBO. Christensen Arms 26'' carbon fiber wrapped Shilen match grade barrel. Build on a Stevens/savage action with all the upgrades. Rifle Basix trigger set at 2.5 pounds, stainless trigger guard, 30mm Talley rings, and Bell and Carlson Medalist tatical/varmint stock. The Medalist is a great stock with a full aluminum bedding block. Shot just over 50 rounds through it and it is and excellent rifle. My first load was a 5 shot group with all touching. So this rifle is well under MOA. I just don't have the time to reload a wild cat. I will include all of the fire formed brass that I have along with the neck die. Let me know if you have any questions or offers.

    As far as a trade I would be most interested in a trade for a lightweight rifle preferably in the 6.5mm. I already have a tactical 308 so this one must go to fund a new project. Thanks.

    Is there any factory ammo available for this gun for sale or does it have to be handloaded.
    Thanks

    It will shoot regular 260 factory ammo. That is one way you fireform the brass. After you shoot the regular 260 ammo it forms the brass into the AI brass. The AI just allows you to get a little more speed is all.

    Looks like 8.5lbs without the scope. This is with the scope rings.
