    I have been hesitant to list this for sale, as I really don't want to sell a rifle that is this accurate.
    However, I have another build going on, and in a moment of weakness, here we go.
    This rifle is built by Travis Redell of R BROS rifles, who has built me 4 rifles to date, and every one has been a tack driver. I already have guilt from selling the 6.5x47 Lapua he built me, but there are no tacticle rifle matches to go to in my area.
    Following is a list of components:
    Remington 700 action trued by R BROS
    Holland Brake
    SSG bolt knob, which I like very much
    Bolt fluting by Chad Dixon of Longrifles
    Brux staggered fluted barrel
    Talley rings for 30mm scope
    Old style Remington trigger tuned to 2.5#
    HS stock with no palmswell and Karsten adj. cheek
    Stock coated by R BROS
    Custom fit Pachmeyer XLT recoil pad
    Set of Redding dies
    100pcs of fireformed brass,and 80 rounds of loaded ammo.
    Drop chart info out to 900 yards
    There are only 80 documented rounds on this rifle, so it brand new.
    Throwing in a box of 6.5 140 Bergers.

    I will sell for $2400.00 shipped CONUS
    I will include the 2.5x10-32mm Nightforce scope for another $1000.00
    Basically, if you buy this setup, all load developement is done and trajectory validation out to 900 yards.
    It will take elk out to that distance in a #10 carry package.

    As others will verify who have bought items from me in the past, I only have top quality items for sale.
    NO low balls accepted, price is fair for a package of this quality.

    OMG your going to regret this sale. If I had the cash I would snatch this right up. What is the barrel profile?

    Wow, what a gun. If Travis built it, you have a tack driver. Have 2 of his builds completing the 3rd.

    Weight is 10# as shown.
    There is no threaded cap. I was actually thinking about cutting off the brake and recrowning it as recoil with the 140's is minimal.
    The reticle is the NP-R2

    By the way, thanks for the kind words, Mike.

    Beautiful rifle, I can't believe you are selling it.

    Curious, how did you fireform 100 rounds and get 1000 yd dope with only 80 rounds on the barrel? Does this rifle come with a fireform barrel?

    Travis fireformed the brass before he sent me the rifle.

    For some reason I can't edit my thread.
    Anyway, the rifle is off the market.
    Not going to sell an R BROS rifle that is this accurate and fun to shoot.
    Goes back in the stable.
