    I have been more of a lurker here than a poster, but my buddy Eddybo will vouch for me.

    I have a Don Geraci (Benchrest Hall of Famer) 338 lapua for sale.
    Specs: Stiller Tac 338 action
    Jewel Trigger
    H S detachable bottom metal
    Vias Break
    Kreiger Palma 9 contour barrel (about like a normal 6 contour)
    Robertsons Composites hunter style stock
    Custom talley base and 30mm rings
    Meopta 4-16 power 30mm scope

    The whole rig cost me $4200. It only has 20 rounds down the tube for break in. I will let it go for $3000 shipped to your FFL or RIfle base and rings for $2800 shipped to your FFL. EMAIL FOR PICs

    Afternoon Bump for a fine Rifle Smith.... Havent seen your rifle shoot but if Don Built it its a goodn! Don guarantees his stuff to shoot if it dont he will shoot it for you and show you how it shoots...He can not only build a good piece he can drive one as well. Somebody needs to take a look at this rifle!

    Thanks for the bump Randy. Mr. Don is amazing I have seen many rifles he has build that shoot well under 1/4 MOA and I have seen many guns/targets of his that have shot measured ZEROS. He is meticulous and he is an extreme perfectionist. He is probably the best bedding and chambering guy on the planet.

    Hi Rob

    Thanks for the pic, would like to see more. Good lookin' rifle.

    How about some specs--barrel length, twist, weight. How well does that Vias brake tame her down, we had issues with a brake like that on an Edge awhile back.

    Thanks again
    Phil

    The barrel length is 28 inches, and the total rig is around 15 lbs. The break works really well, but you can still tell it is a magnum. I can easily handle a good shooting session with it before my shoulder gave out im sure. I put 12 rounds through it on a bench no problem. I am not sure of the twist; it is whatever kreiger and Mr. Don decided would work best. I appologize for not remembering.

    Hi Rob

    Thanks for the new pics.
    I'm comparing the brake on your rifle to one I had with a Vias brake. Looking at the brake from the muzzle end are there holes in the edge of the brake.

    This one does not have holes in the end, but otherwise it looks like a vias, and thats what the smith told me it was.
