    J.T.L. Custom Right-Hand Bolt-Action 6.5-06 (6.5mm-06) is a tack-shooter.
    Gunsmith: Jim Lewis, Butte, MT (Ex-Navy Seal --- R.I.P.) Google him.
    "J.T.L." is stamped on the barrel by the action.
    I inherited this right-hand rifle from my Dad.
    It appears lightly used from the bench.

    InterArms MK X Action
    Jeweled bolt
    Shilen barrel (23.5" to where it meets the action.)
    Matte Finish
    Talley mounts and rings
    New 6.5-06 RCBS dies included

    Burris Fullfield II 3x9x40mm w/Ballistic Plex Reticle

    (SIERRA MANUAL HAS IT TOO.)


    For some reason, the 6.5mm (.264) flies better that the 7mm (.284), the .277, the .257 and then some.

    Same Gunsmith (Jim Lewis)
    RugerForum.com • View topic - Fancy,Full Custom, Pre-WWII,Model 70 Winchester,.270 Caliber


    I too, have one of his .270 rifles - with a primo stock n metalwork job on a Springfield 1903 action.
    ('Don't think I wanna sell that one!)

    Here's a photo of Jim Lewis in his shop (Funny, he told my Dad that he was a SEAL -- maybe not.)
