    Mark Pharr from Tumbleweeds Custom Rifles did the smith work.
    http://www.tumbleweedsrifles.com/

    He is a very good smith and takes pride in his work, he built my F-Class rifle and a 6.5X47 Lapua rifle that I use for hunting. He is currently working on a 6BRX and a 284 Shehane for me, that's the reason I need to sell this one so I can fund the other rifles.

    Not glass bedded but stock has aluminum bedding block.
    It has a factory remington trigger set at 2 lbs., I think a different spring was put in it but not 100% sure
    It is a BDL.
    Muzzle diameter is .840"
    Never chronoed, but according to my drop chart it is going about 2875 fps.
    According to QuickLOAD I can reach 3000 fps., but this load shot really good when I was breaking in the barrel so I just went hunting.

    According to my notes, I used 10 shots while hunting, 9 confirmed kills. Missed a coyote at unknown distance, it was a rushed shot in the dark while driving back to camp.

    Out of those 9 confirmed kills, the closest was a coyote at 120 yards and the farthest was a javalina at 435 yards. Very accurate rifle.

    Thank you,

    -Erik
