    Custom build by a good friend. Took my left hand Rem 700 and trued the action.

    Build consist of:

    -26" Lilja barrel with 1-8 twist #4 contour with Harolds brake
    -PTG speedlock
    -HS Percision stock with adjustable cheek piece
    -Timmney Trigger set at 2lbs.
    -Mark IV rail with Burris XTR rings
    -Huskemaw 5-20LR Blue Diamond


    Load consist of:

    -Lapua brass
    -140VLD Berger
    -H4831 SC 53.5g
    -Coal 3.825

    Gun has been shot around 80 times just recently broke in. Its starting to level out around 2950 fps. This is my first Huskemaw and I love it! The clicks are right on the money no matter how many times you turn them. I will definitely own another one. My friend owns a Nightforce and for clarity and money difference the Huskemaw is hard to beat. The 1000 yard shot group was shot in the middle of the day and even under bright light conditions I could still see the target easily. Thanks for looking, Diver96

    I have a similar rifle that I built on an old lefty Remmy 700 30-06 action I had. 27.5" Pac Nor 9 twist fluted sitting in a pillar bedded Mcmillan BDL style stock. I run 53 gr of RL-22 under 140 Bergers @ 3126 fps and it's a hammer out to 1350. I run a NF 5.5-22x56 NP2-DD on it but I have to agree with you on the Blue Diamonds. I just bought my first a couple of months ago and I have to say that for a hunting scope it is Awesome! I have it sitting on a 20" barreled lefty 700 in 260 AI. I run 130 JLK's in it with RL-17. Hopefully I'll get to put the smack doown on a muley next week with it here in Utah and post some pics!
