    Another going to fund the next build. $800 shipped to your FFL holder.

    Remington 700 action - action face squared, lugs lapped, Ceracoated black.

    Brux #4 barrel finished at 26". 10" twist. Bead blasted snakeskin pattern. Recessed crown. Standard Wby freebore. Has approximately 400 rounds through it. Barrel has the chambering engraved on one side and my name on the other. Both engravings are on the cylinder portion. If it bothers you, it would be easy to turn the engraving off or mill a flat over it and engrave your own name there.

    PT&G bottom metal. Sits a tiny bit proud of flush with the stock, maybe 1/16".

    Remington LSS Stock bedded in acraglass. 1" decelerator. Decelerator was already on the stock when I got it and the fitting wasn't the best. Appears that the person that fitted it was nervous about marring the stock finish, so didn't sand it down enough. A steady hand could fix it ok.

    Die Set - Redding S-Die with bushing. Seater is Forster micrometer.

    Chamber guage cut with same reamer as chambered with.

    All work done by Jim Myers of One Hole Gunworks

    100+ Weatherby brand .270 Wby Brass fireformed in this rifle. 19 Weatherby Brand .257 Wby brass.
