    Stainless Remmy 700 short action trued & squared.

    27" 1 in 8 twist Hart barrel.
    Jewell trigger with top safety.
    Remington factory bottom metal.

    470 rounds down the pipe.
    $1650
    No major flaws, scratches, etc. I have cared for this rifle like I do all of my guns. She's turned into a safe queen only firing 18 rounds in the last 2 years.

    This rifle was originally built for a competition gun, but it turned out to feel more like a sweet little hunting rig, so that's what it did.
    I have over 1200 rds on another Ackley and it still shoots lights out and I've pushed it twice as hard as this one. I figure 1500+ rds is very acheivable depending on stress levels.
    This rifle has shot everything from 55's to 107's very well.
    The 80 grainers are hell on deer and coyotes!
    I also have a few rounds loaded up and a little bit of fireformed brass that will be included. I will see what I have if any serious inquirers come about.

    Bathroom scale show between 7 & 8 lbs without bipod.
    I have 50 pcs of fireformed brass, 34 of which are loaded up w/ moly coated 105 Amax's. This is nosler & winchester brass. 4X fired.

    I will pay shipping to FFL, but you pick up insurance.

    All PM's answered. Tades and/or partial trades could be considered.
    Some things that come to mind are: Swarovski spotting scope,
    rifles of particular interest include 7 STW, and 338's.
