    I just finished up a .300 Win Mag for "Trueblue". Specs are a Stiller Predator action, Rock barrel chambered in .300 Win Mag, DE Brake, HS Precision Stock and a Jewel Trigger. Everything turned out well and I'm sure Jim will be pleased.

    Is the barrel one fo the 5-groove barrels with canted lands like the 5R Rem? I am thinking about a project just like this one. I'll be interested to see how this combo shoots.

    The rifle weighs 8 lbs. 3 oz. with no scope and no bi-pod. The barrel contour is a #4 I believe and it is a 6 groove. All the parts were supplied by the customer so hopefully I listed them correctly.

    Nice build Kevin.
    I'm sure Jim will keep us informed on how she shoots.

    I have not recieved the rifle yet, but I must commend Kevin on getting it built in the time frame we had talked about. I will report how it shoots later, but I am sure it will shoot great. Thanks Kevin.

    Update:
    Started to break the barrel in this weekend. Shot 82gr Retumbo with 190 Berger's on the lands. Got a little over 3000fps with 1/2" group. Only shot 5 rounds due to time. The rifle seems to have potential to be a shooter.
    Should end up weighing about 10 pounds with a scope on it.

    I needed to post this pic, to give credit to Kevin Cram / Montour County Rifles for building an accurate rifle. This is a target I just shot today at 100 yards, after doing a box and a verticle travel test on my Nightforce 2.5x10-32mm scope. I share the range with other guys, so I taped over the used target and then shot this 3 shot group. The load was 190gr Berger and 82gr of Retumbo at 3000fps. I don't know if I could repeat this performance, but the rifle sure is capable. Shot this rifle last weekend at 525 and 630 yards, and when I took my ATV to the steel plate, both rounds were touching. Didn't take a pic as I had no camera,and even if I did, I don't think anyone would beleive it. I didn't beleive it myself.

    Anyway, kudos to Kevin for building an accurate rifle.[​IMG]
