    I built this as a spec gun from parts for sale on LRH. It was a piece here and a piece there at a good deal. The barrel came in and the customer changed his mind on contour so I kept it. I went back and forth on the chamber and finally settled on the 7mm Dakota. The rifle weighs 8 lbs. 12 oz with no bi-pod no scope. The original fire control had the ISS lock and all I had on hand non ISS was a blued fire control. I can upgrade to a PTG and silver shroud, I can also upgrade the trigger if someone preferred. This rifle has never been fired and is brand spanking new. I invoiced this rifle and to custom build it would cost around $2500. I'm selling this for $2250 plus shipping. I'll include a hard case with the rifle. Here are the specs.

    Remington 700 L/A BDL Stainless fully blueprinted
    Holland Recoil Lug
    Sako Extractor
    Factory Remington Trigger
    Chambered 7mm Dakota
    Brux Barrel / 7mm / 1-9 twist / #4 contour / finished at 26"
    Interrupted flutes Cerakoted black
    CSR Original Muzzle Brake
    Custom Thumb Hole Stock in Birch Laminate / 1" Decelorator Pad / 2 swivel studs / Matte Clear Finish
    Pillar Bedded

    Thanks for looking

    what is the parent case for a Dakota?? I do reload but not for wildcats. So i would assume that you can not just buy bullets for this rig.

    As for you're question of Barrel life I'm not sure. Take care of the barrel don't let it heat up keep it clean and it will last awhile. How many shots you shoot out of you're hunting guns?

    Just a guess but follow what I said above and I don't see why you couldn't get 1k rounds before a setback is needed. Maybe more. How long will it take you to shoot 1k rounds. My carry gun I'd be lucky to shoot that many rounds in a lifetime. My Dakota I built however I expect to hit that in 2 to 3 years. We share our guns when we hunt so we normally shoot 300 to 400 rounds a year out of each gun. I hunt with the same group of guys so we stay familiar with each others equipment in case we have to use theirs when a shot presents itself.

    Kevin's guns shoot lights out. My longest shots to date were with his guns. His Cheytac I killed a doe at over 1500 yards this year. My buck was 400 yards. I have killed groundhogs with Kevins guns over 1k yards.

    I have not done load testing with one of Kevins gun yet that we havn't found a load that shoots 1/2 MOA and single digit ES and SD through the chrono with minimal effort. Performance with any of his builds will not be an issue.

    I handled this gun many times at his shop. I will say this....If I had the money right now this gun would not have made these pages to sell. I wouldn't hesitate to buy this for long range work if I already didn't have a Dakota.

    Put some good optics on this and a good shooter behind it and it will spell trouble to any deer inside of 1k yards...maybe further.
