    I was extremely fortunate to win a fantastic rifle last week. It's a custom Remington 700 chambered in 280AI. Build list parts include a benchmark #2 contour 23" 5R 9 twist barrel, triggertech trigger, B&C bedded stock, cerekoted metal, Leupold vx3i 4.5-14 CDS scope mounted with Talleys. All of the parts and gunsmithing was donated and tickets sold as a fundraiser. Looking forward to shooting this fine rifle soon.

    +1 on the WOW! Real nice win. Beats the heck out of our win, we didn’t need it, wasn’t my preferred rifle....but was a good all around cartridge. We sold it and did OK. Should have kept it for the granddaughter.....it would have been a nice rifle for her! memtb

    Looks like an awesome light weight mountain hunting rifle.I am actually building one very similar for a fundraiser as well. I hope you have many great hunting experiences with that beauty!
