    Ok, so I am putting this one back up for sale. I will provide as much information as possible. I've decided I need something more compact than this one. The weight is excellent but just a bit long for me. I spent quite a bit of time doing the barrel break in to 50 rounds. Then 10 additional round for accuracy testing. So the rifle has had exactly 60 rounds down it. The very last group I shot is below. One of the targets showing break in with three different loads and powders. It took a couple of different sessions to get to 50 for the break in. All the potential is there.
    I can sell the rifle with all the brass, bullets and dies:
    126 New Brass
    60 Once Fired Brass
    14 Loaded Rounds that will be unloaded.
    140 168 Accubond LR bullets
    100 175 Accubond LR bullets
    Die Set
    Neck Die
    OAL Gauge
    Rifle Case

    $2200 Shipped for Everything
    $2000 Rifle Shipped

    If I remember right there are 29 or 30 rounds in the pic below. I used different loads of H1000, IMR 7828SSC and 4000-MR Powders. Seating depth was the same in all at approx. .02-.015 off the lands. I didn't try any jumps. This target isn't an indication of accuracy but part of the process.

    I am interested in the brass if it doesn’t go with the gun. Thanks

    Nothing comes to mind except green backs. But I'm willing to entertain offers
