    And why would you take it off? You could get another action for your asking price.

    Hello Predmaster223,

    The image depicting complete rifle is stock image only.
    Barrel & Carbon Fiber Stock acquired through Probate.
    Building complete gun not an option.

    So the barrel has 500 rounds down the pipe and you broke it in? What kind of load data do you have.

    Load development test was conducted using 20 different types of manufactured ammo and several different custom loads from Superior Superior Ammunition, Inc.
    Out of Sturgis, SD.

    I have targets from the load development test which clearly demonstrates the performance results at 100 yards. Test results indicate Nosler Accubond 180gr, Nosler Accubond LR 210gr, Berger VLD 210gr performed the best.
    However, manufacturer's metrics and ballistic tables suggest Nosler Accubond 180gr. has max effective range of 800 yards while maintaining 1000 ft lbs energy. Both Berger and Nosler 210gr effective range 1100 yards = 1000 ft lbs energy.

    Hi,

    Do you still have any of the sub 1/4" test targets you could post pics of along with what loads produced each of the groups?

    Was the barrel installed/removed by Christensen arms gunsmith? what twist and manufacturer of barrel was it that Christensens installed their carbon fiber sleeve onto?

    Thanks.

    John
