    Always had a desire to own one of these so I had it built, shot it and realized its not my cup of tea. Less then 50 Rounds
    Rifle is suppressor ready. For you that do not know what this is it is basically a 300 Whisper but cannot call it that as SSK has the whisper name patented. So .300/221 Fireball is correct designation.

    Specs*
    Remington Left Hand 700 Short action trued
    Douglas Premium 17in barrel with end cap threaded 5/8x24
    Trigger set to 2.5lbs

    Not much of a call for this sort of rig so $875 gets you the rifle and 100 pieces of brass shipped to your FFL. (its all the brass I had started out with so there is some once fired and new brass) If you would like the Redding 300/221 3 die set $1000 even shipped to your FFL. Trades welcome

    I am right handed. The left hand bolt really speeds things up when your shooting from a rest. It is a pain offhand...but this rifle isn't built to be shot offhand :D $1150 gets you the rifle. I think preformed brass is $50 per 100 (if I remember correctly).

    New Price on the rifle $830 Shipped to your FFL.

    Without the suppressor and shooting supersonic about like a 223. Subsonic without suppressor about like a 22.

    Suppressed with subsonics hardly anything.

    Man I wish that was a right handed action .I think I would be an awsome short range preaditor gun. With supressor and night vision totally awsome.
