    Up for sale is a custom long range hunting rig. If you want to get into long range shooting or hunting this is your gun. It easily shoots 1/4 to 1/2 MOA. I have shot 3-4 inch groups and less at 800 yards. I need to fund another gun project so this one needs to go.

    Specification:
    Blueprinted/trued Sako L691 action
    Obermeyer medium heavy fluted barrel (1-11 twist i believe)
    Recessed button crown
    Joel Russo Laminate stock, clearcoated/wet sanded shiny finish
    Pillar bedding with large pillars
    Custom adjustable check piece
    Limbsaver recoil pad
    Trigger adjusted to around 1 lb (has not been measured but real light trigger)
    30 MOA picatinny rail

    **Scope, rings, and bipod are not included**

    Stock was cracked before I bought the gun. It was fixed by inserting a metal pin and glueing/sealing the area. The colors were matched and then clear coated. See pictures for details. I have had this gun for 2 years since the crack and never had any problems with it. You can't even notice it is there but I want the buyer to have full knowledge of the rifle before purchase. Only other spots on the rifle is a couple small places were I wet sanded through the clear coat but nothing drastic.

    Hello, I would be interested in knowing these things.

    1: round count

    2: weight

    3: varify twist and barrel length

    4: have you ever shot 210 bergers in it?

    Thanks!

    Jeff

    James Jones from this site can give you more info on the gun. I bought it from James and traded it to DG for some cameras. I had a local paint shop clear the gun, but that was all I did other than help DG work up a load before he got into reloading. The gun shoots very well, at least my 800 yard gong thinks so. I know DG smacked it many times with this gun.

    Jeff,

    Thanks for you interest. I have put about 100-150 rounds through the gun with the 168 grain berger VLDs and BT. Both shot very well. I will PM James Jones to see what his round count was if he remembers. I will weight the gun on a scale tonight to get the weight and will verify the twist with a rod and clean patch tonight. I have never shot the 210 bergers in this gun but have been wanting to try them. Berger recommends a 11 twist for the 210 bergers.

    Jeff,

    Sorry for the delay. I had to bring the wife out to eat tonight and just got home. I weighted the rifle by just holding it while I weight myself on the scale. It turned out to weight 10 pounds using that method. I took the action out of the stock and the barrel is stamped 1-11 twist. I measure the twist using the rod/patch method and got 11, 10.5, 11, 10.5 the four times I measured it. Since I had the action out of the stock I took a couple pictures of the large pillars. If you have any other questions let me know. Thanks

    Zach, I was hoping you were mistaken and it was a 10 twist. I know that Berger says 11 will shoot the 210's but I prefer a 10. You have an awesome rifle at a good price, I am sure it will sell soon.

    Thanks for all the answers and your time.

    Pat,

    I have put about 100-150 rounds through the gun with the 168 grain berger VLDs and BT. Both shot very well. I sent James Jones a PM and email to see what his round count was if he remembers. He has not been online a while so I may not receive an answer. I know that I cleaned it thoroughly after every trip to the range and was never put up dirty. I hope that helps.

    Yo DG, I am pretty sure that the barrel was only broken in before you got it. Maybe James will let us know for sure, but I am pretty sure that he had it chambered but never got the stock finished, then found something else he liked.
