    Thanx for sharing. I am building a .408 wildcat bench gun on the same action now. I hope I am as happy with the finished product as I am the action. They are great guys to work with.

    You suck.

    Seriously though. Great set up. You either are single or have the most understanding wife in the world.

    Congrats SR. I too looked at those PGW demos and thought long and hard about it. It game down to one of those or the down payment on a house. Needless to say I closed last friday. Still want the gun, especially seeing your finished piece.

    At least she drew the line after this one.

    Matt, there's only one of the demo rifles left. They are getting ready to start a run of the Timberwolf actions real soon. I talked to Steve this afternoon about one for the 416PGW. So better make plans to get a home equity loan now [​IMG].

    SR thats a nice setup, just wish it weight a little bit less with the scope. What rings did you use on the T-wolf? Also did you go with the mil-dot on both scopes?

    for those interested here is the info on the rifles

    rifle 1 spec's:
    Manuf: PrairiGunWorks http://www.prairiegunworks.com
    Model: Timberwolf
    Caliber: 338 Lapua Mag
    Metal finish is teflon desert
    Mag capicity: 6 rounds + 1
    Barrel Length: 26" without break

    Scope: USOptics SN3 3.8-22x58mm 40mm tub
    Rifle weight: 16 1/2 lbs without scope
    System weight: 20 lbs

    This was one of the demo rifles that were used in the Canadian military sniper trials, It has a new barrel though and has been refinished. The only signs that it has been used are on the stock. The unofficial word is these rifles gave the competing sniper systems a royal spanking during the trials.


    Rifle two specs:
    Manufacturer: Robar
    Model: Sr90 on a remington 700 short action
    Caliber: 308 win.
    Finish: polymax woodland
    Sling: Tactical Intervention
    Barrel length: 24" fluted
    Scope: USoptics ST10 10x
    rifle weight: 12 lbs without scope
    system weight: 15.5 lbs

    You should be able to use an expander ball out of a 416 rem mag. E-mail Ross at rifles@prairiegunworks.com and ask him for info on the die maker.

    Thanks everyone! Glad to see you like my new toy.

    Just got done shooting it at 1000 yards in a 15 MPH gusting winds and it performed quite well. I am still doing load development and I am going to be testing some RL25 soon. Those 300 grainers sure do buck the wind well!
