    My brother had an old 300 ultra mag and really didnt like the pounding recoil, especially now that he is having shoulder issues so I rounded up some parts and sent it off for a rebuild.

    Rem 700 LA
    Manners MCS-T stock
    PTG bottom metal
    Timney trigger
    Kreiger #4
    The guys at Predator Custom in Knoxville put it together for us.
    Vortex viper 6-20
    I cerakoted all the metal parts in my shop and did the Mountain Viper Camo treatment on the stock for him.

    We haven't had a lot of time to shoot it, but a few weeks ago we went out and he was very happy with it. He shot a 1/2' group at 200 and we rang steel all the way out to 900 yards with it. Needless to say, he is pretty happy with it. In October it is going on its first trip to CO to hunt elk.

    Stocks on both rifles are simply badass! Give us the specs on the 'big brother' too. And post the pics and/or video of how you painted those stocks. (I'm sure you have pics and/or videos)

    My rifle is a Stiller TAC300 with a Kreiger #6 chambered in 300WSM, Manners MCS-T stock, and PTG bottom metal built by LongShot rifles. Last year, on its maiden CO trip, a friend of mine used it to fill his bull tag with a 508 yard shot. The longest shot he had ever taken. Dropped him in one shot.

    The paint job is sort of my signature pattern that I came up with last year. I cant give away all my secrets but I use hand cut stencils to get the main pattern and then airbrush stencils to make the smaller patterns.
