    This is my first custom built rifle that was put together by Don Geraci. It is a 300 Win Mag designed to shoot 208 and up grain boolits. Shot a 1/4" group with it during barrel break in, so I think it might be a shooter. I Molly coated the barrel od green and wanted a little lighter shade of od on the stock so I mixed some paint together and it came out a little lighter than I hoped, but I can live with it. Here are the paticulars.
    Rem action
    26" Krieger with Schrewd brake
    Fluting done by Kampfeld Customs on barrel and bolt
    Manners T5
    Badger Lug and bolt handle
    Vortex 6-24 pst mil/mil
    Aadland triple lug rings
    Seekins Rail
    Tuned Old style rem trigger

    Karl does some of the best (if not THE best) fluting work i've ever seen, he did my barrel too. Talk about a super nice guy...


    Great looking rig, i've almost bought the AAD triple lug mounts a couple times, they look hella stout.


    Thanks for posting.

    Sweet! Hope it keeps the tack-driver tendencies :)

    Thanks fellas, the aadland rings are super stout. John (the owner) is a really nice guy. I ordered mediums and they were too high, I emailed him and asked him about trading for some lows and he sent me some lows the next day. Can't beat customer service like that.

    Got a chance to shoot it yesterday. Got two decent loads with 208 and 168 grain bullets.
