After some long weeks, months, even a few years, I’ve gotten this project completed finally.

Divorce derailed my plans for a bit (glad that’s behind me), as did a few other things but it’s finished now.

Specs:
(gunsmithing work done by Jon Beanland)
-Action trued
-Defiance bolt release
-Bolt face opened up
-Mini M16 extractor
-Bartlein heavy Palma contour bbl cut to 18.5”
-MBM 5 port Beast brake
-JGS reamer to my spec for the 30 Nosler
-Ken Farrel 20 MOA scope base
-Burris 3x-12x BP scope (will be replaced next day when I get some scope rings from work with a Leupold VX5 HD 3x-15x-44 Windplex reticle scope)
-Titanium cerakote
-Microslick coating on the bolt
-McMillan Alpine Ambush stock bedded by Jon Beanland

Update with latest range trip.

three shot group = 0.130” at 100 meters.

Berger 210 VLDH, H1000 = good combination.

Matrix 210 VLD shoots nearly the same.

RL26 gives a boost in velocity, need to work on the load with that one.

Have yet to hit pressure.

I’m quite pleased. 😁😎

Changed up some scope setups. Took a handguns scope off of my 7mm RSAUM. I removed the Leupold VX5HD 3x-15x-44 #171715 scope from the 30 Nosler and mounted it to the 7mm RSAUM.

I then mounted a new Leupold 3x-15x-56 #171390 scope to the 30 Nosler.

I got both sighted back in today.

The 30 Nosler is now humming the Berger 210 VLDH @ 2700 fps with H1000 and 2791 fps with RL26.

Of course the 7mm RSAUM is still doing its usual ~2800 fps with the Hornady 162 ELDX.
