Picked up my browning abolt today that I had a bartlin 1-7.5 barrel chambered in 6mm texan shot 35 rounds thru it had a shot 2.5in group at 500yds it turned out great. 115gr bergers are running 3130fps not sure how much it will speed up after barrel is broke in

This is the 2nd one I have had built both are really good shooters going to try it at 700yds tomorrow. It is really amazing to me how much better the 115 will buck the wind then the 105

A small gunsmith here in ks told me he deigned it he even had them for sale on his website but he went out of business in December so I bought a reamer from him.

It’s an amazing cartridge barrel not broke in and fire forming his brass he shot on my range and had five shots inside of a three inch circle and that was with some wind issues at 500 yards good gun and shooting on his part. David

I tried to get the 6mm texan on steel at 700yds today didn't have a large enough piece of steel had trouble with the wind steel plate was 12in×20in hope to get to some larger steel next weekend thanks
 

Nightforce has great tracking capabilities, they are rugged, a bunch of elevation, holds zero forever, and reticles are designed for long range shooting. So if you are looking to shoot long distances constantly, then you need a scope that can take the abuse. -- gilmillan1

The new NightForce ATACR is for sure a top choice for any long range shooter. Read More


The total package. Nightforce is the best I have used as far as turret feel and solid detents. I have never had one that didn't track right on and always return to zero. Nightforce NXS is the best value for everything I need. -- Broz
