    McMillan A5 pillar bedded
    Schneider 30 inch heavy palma barrel 1 in 9 twist.
    Aztek Arms bottom metal
    Accurate Mag 5 round magazine
    Shilen trigger

    That's a great looking rifle! Be sure and let us know how it shoots after you get it dialed in.

    That kinda reminds me of the Borden actions. Good looking rig for sure. How does the Imp. round mag feed? Which bullet?

    Dern fine looking rig for sure.

    Nice rig. 50moa rail?? You'll have to sight it in for 600 yards - yes?

    It is a nice action. It has an integral recoil lug and has a nice extractor. It feeds great, no problems. I'm shooting 300 gr SMK's loaded .005 off the lands. OAL is 3.725. The mag length is 3.75 so they do fit ok. My scope has 132 MOA of travel and I still have 12 MOA left of down when I zero it at 100 with the 50 MOA rail. It gives me enough adjustment to dial to around 2900 yards depending on the baro pressure. It should go subsonic at around 2450 yards though. I just got a Terrapin yesterday and can't wait to get out and stretch it out.

    I will. I had my 338 edge to 2000 all the time. If you get on youtube and search 338 edge 2000 you'll see a video I took of it. I sold that rifle to build this one. This one should give me another 300 or so yards over the edge before going subsonic.

    Wow, what a sweet rig! That is impressive to use a 50 moa base and still be able to zero at 100 yards with moa to spare! Well thought out set up. Portable yet enough horsepower to cleanly take game to well over a mile. Man, I'm speechless.
