    This is a dangerous game rifle built to be easily carried through thick cover, but would also make a great elk gun. My AK bear hunt didn't materialize, and now I must part with this beautiful weapon.

    I have never fired the rifle. $1600.

    Details:
    Sako L691 action (ultra smooth)
    23", 1 in 12", heavy taper Douglas SS barrel (Teflon coated)
    Heavy duty recoil lug
    SS muzzle brake
    McMillan Remington Sporter stock (pillar and glass bedded)
    Limbsaver pad
    Tuned factory trigger
    Milled aluminum bottom metal
    Rifle built by Herb's Custom Gun Shop

    Also included:
    2 full boxes of Federal 225 Trophy Bonded Bear Claw ammunition
    30mm, SS scope rings/bases

    Thank you for looking!

    A 26 or 28 inch barrel will make it a complertely different rifle.

    Since the original post I decided to see how this rifle shoots so I did some load development using 225 grain Barnes TTSX bullets and test fired at 100, 500, and 800 yards. 500 yard group was 3" ctc, and 800 yd group was sub MOA.

    I will include 20 pieces of loaded ammo in the load described above along with validated drop info if interested. As I recall the actual impact drops indicate that the G1 BC on these bullets is higher than what Barnes indicates.

    Thanks,
    Chandler
