    Built this rifle and have now gone on a different route for my hunting rifle.

    Specs as follows:
    Remington 700 long action, blueprinted
    Remington 700 bolt, trued to action
    Remington 700 old style trigger
    Shilen Select Match 9 twist finished at 24", fluted, light palma taper
    HS Precision stock, added texture for better grip with gloves in cold/wet/snowy weather
    BDL bottom metal
    **Stock is hydrodipped in Kuiu Verde
    Barreled action, bolt, and bottom metal cerakoted titanium
    **bolt shroud is uncoated stainless

    ***FLAWS***
    The stock texturing has chipped (see photo). The stock was hydrodipped before I noticed the missing chunk. I personally never cared, but in the case of full disclosure, there you have it.

    The rear tang of the action is discolored. I have no idea how this happened, if it was cross contamination during the coating process of the day. Again, I never cared as it is a hunting rifle and I planned on hunting and using, not as a show piece. Again, full disclosure.

    I have fired a total of 13 rounds through the rifle at this time. I am still not sure I want to sell it, so I will continue load development using brand new Winchester brass, H-1000 powder, and 160 grain Nosler Accubond.

    ASKING $2400 for the rifle delivered to your FFL. I am into the rifle for more than this (wife will surely kill me, but that is the nature of selling rifles. Ammirite?)

    Wish there was a drool icon! Nice rig. Want this exact gun! Who did the work? You may have mentioned it, I was too focused on the gun...

    I went out today to test loads. This is 7 rounds fired at 100 yards. This is the following powder charges of H-1000: 3=67, 4=67.5, 5=68, 6=68.5, 7=69, 8=69.5, 9=70. This is with Hornady 162 grain BTSP.

    That is just under 1" group over a span of 3 grains of powder. I think the honey load is going to be 68 grains of H-1000. I will be heading back out to the range to verify loads from 68-69 grains at 300 yards. Going in .2 grain increments. Will post more later. As you can tell though, this is a shooter!

    Not interested in any trades at this time. It would have to be something super spectacular for it to peak my interest.


    ALSO: Camo pattern is KUIU VIAS, Not verde as in the original post.

    I might be interested in a partial trade with a medium end DSLR (Canon 60D or Nikon 5300 with lenses).

    Let me know!
