    For the most part, I simply lost interest.

    I have been good friends with ther original owner for years and the type/quality weapons he has built. After finally talking him him out of this one, I realized it and my 70 year body and span of attention do not fit together very well.

    Thanks for the interest

    That rifle is awesome .Result of this poor economy, the work picture dried up in my union hall.Upon realizing I can earn more retired then I can working.I hung up my belt . It just wouldn't be responsible of me to purchase that cool looking rifle. Million places here in Nevada for me to fire it.Thanks for getting back to me. I hope you find a home for it.

    I did the same thing only I'm mid 50's. I would refer to hunt and chase........ uh.... walk after women at my age. Folks for sure I know where he's coming from. I think you shot your more than I shot mine.
    I sure like retirement too.

    I received the following question and my response, in retorspect, will likely provide a bit more clarity about the rifle that I could have overlooked.
    Thanks for looking!

    QUOTE=stenger]if you can find out what bullet the rifle is throated for it might be sold if its what i am looking for.

    thanks[/QUOTE]
    Sir:
    I am not sure I can properly answer your question as I am not exactly sure what you are asking that was not provided in the data of the offering.
    The rifle is/was set up for the 250 Scenar and specifically using Lapua brass. Please note the chamber neck constriction is engraved on the barrel by the maker and is/was specific to the use of Lapua brass.
    I have not attempted to work with it with any other projectile; however, since an "assembled OAL gauge/round" was furnished by the maker, it should be a simple matter to use it as a guide to try other projectiles. I can provide you an OAL measurement from the "OAL length gauge"; however, I am not sure it would actually be that meaningful.
    This specific rifle is the one pictured on the Gre-Tan web site, for whatever that may be worth, and it is possible he may have records far above my learning.
    Thanks for your interest.

    Thanks Jeff.

    Forgot you also have intimate knowledge of the rifle and it construction as well as the origional owner.

    Bad time to sell; however, good time to buy apparently.

    It may be of some value to note, this specific rifle is referenced and prominently displayed on GREG TANNEL'S Web Site in the Tactical Rifle section: Gre-Tan Rifles

    It is unique and a known entity! Thanks for your interest.
