    For Sale:

    Rem 700 280AI
    26" fluted varmint contour Shilen barrel
    McMillan A3 stock, 65% red / 35% black (off SU35's el diablo)
    NICE Timney trigger
    BDL bottom metal
    150 280AI R-P brass
    Redding 280AI dies

    I got the barrel used, and have put 650 rounds down it. It never shot consistently in the .2's or .3's for me like I hoped when I built it, but I could always get a regular 3/4 MOA out of it. When I shot up the last batch of rounds I had loaded up for it last month I shot an 8 shot group just playing around into the .7's. The barrel isn't fresh but it shoots just like it did when I screwed it on.

    It is throated and twisted for heavies. I primarily shot 180 Berger VLD's in it over Reloader 17 @ 2800, and it was a SOFT load. The action is the smoothest 700 action I've ever personally felt.

    The stock shows up a little pinker than it actually is in my pictures, and a little redder than it actually is in SU35's pictures on his el diablo thread. I'd say split the difference. It came bedded, I ground out the recoil lug and barrel pad area and re-bedded it specific to this barreled action.

    It isn't especially heavy, with 30mm Talleys and a 20 oz scope like a 3.5-10x40 Mark 4 or a 10xHD SWFA SS it goes right about 10 lbs.

    Includes the three boxes of brass I used with it and a set of Redding dies.

    $1100 shipped, individual to FFL only, USPS MO only

    It's in between pink and red, and somewhat depends on the light.

    No, I would not take $950.
