    Here's a 300 RUM that Nate built for me last year. I took it on its maiden voyage this past fall to WY and shot a nice whitetail. Finally had time to post.

    Specs:
    Borden Timberline single shot action w/SSG bolt knob
    Lilja 30" 10 Twist #7 contour barrel
    SSG muzzle break
    Jewell trigger
    Manner's T2 stock -desert sand color
    NF Rings
    Ken Farrell 20 MOA base
    NF 5.5-22X56 w/npr2 reticule
    K-G Kote barreled action dark earth tan with foliage green bolt handle and rings
    B-square anti cant
    Badger cosine indicator
    Sinclair Tactical/Varmint bipod

    Here is a look at what she'll do. This gun will shoot some small groups. I just happened to find this one for this post. Notice this one is from a clean barrel, the gun will average .3-.4 with ease.

    Thanks Capt Academy. This gun is a sweet shooting gun, I almost got set up to shoot the whitetail at 892 yards. My bro-in-law was with me and I was trying to get him set up for the shot also since there were two mature whitetail bucks together. But by the time I got the dope for my rifle and his, both bucks bedded down for the morning. We then moved closer to see if we could spot them in the bed from a different vantage point. We did locate them and had to wait a little over 3 hours for one of the bucks to get up and stretch. Long story short we managed to drop both bucks. Then the work began!

    450 yards is still one hell of a shot! Great job and again, that's one very nice looking rifle.
