    I have an awesome wife who talked me out of this. She knew it was killing me to do it in the first place. Guess I will keep them both :D.


    I sincerely hate to do this, and if I weren't paying bills to go to gunsmithing school, this wouldn't be for sale. Period. Here are the specs:

    Rem. 700 SS Action trued
    Sako style extractor
    Gre-tan striker upgrade
    Wyatt extended mag
    Holland recoil lug
    28" Lilja 1 in 10" #7 fluted
    3 Port PainKiller brake
    Manners MCS-T stock w/3 studs
    Badger 20 MOA Rail
    Nightforce UL 30mm rings
    Leupold VX-III LT/R 8.5-25x50 Varmint Ret. M1 knobs. Scope recently back from Leupold where they redid the erectors and the lens when they installed the M1 knobs
    Sunshade
    Butler Creek covers
    193 pcs new .300 brass NOT resized
    ***My bad. 24 pcs are sized Nosler brass. Also primed. The rest is unsized Rem. brass.***
    1-#55874 Redding .338 RUM Comp. Seater
    1-80924 Redding .338-.300 dies
    Partial box of 250gn SMK
    I am probably missing something
    170 shots down the tube. 5 from Kirby for test firing and 165 from me. By the way, Kirby's test firing produced a 3 shot 2.6" group at 650yds. I haven't shot long distance groups, but have shot balloons out to 750yds. Many 3-5 shot groups well under 1/2"
    Do not want to break this up unless the scope sells first.
    $3500.00 Plus shipping. No trades. Bipod for an extra $50
    Here are some pics of the rifle and of the last target I shot at 100yds.

    If I remember correctly, wt is around 13lb. Velocity depends on the load, but around 2850.

    Sounds to me like you've got a great wife and a real keeper. You'd better be treating her realllllly nice. Ones like her don't come around very often.:)

    Didn't actually want to sell it in the first place. Was only selling cause I am going to gunsmithing school in the fall and was going to use the money to pay off some bills and get some tools. My wife talked me out of it cause she knew I really didn't want to sell it. She is pretty awesome. Like I said before, guess I will keep her. :)
