I am selling a custom 700 with trued action, heavy lug, fluted bolt, reshaped bolt shroud, extended bolt handle, timney trigger. Threads were cleaned up so stock Rem barrel will fit. Barrel is unknown I got in a trade and was short chambered. Looked new but owner could not confirm that. I had it chambered for 180s if you want to load them. It is 23" long, .640 at muzzle, fluted, threaded (9/16 by 28) with thread cover. Enough room to easily rethread it to something else if you want. Borescopes excellent and shoots that way, under 1" with no load workup. I took a stock load, loaded a few and it shot well enough for what I wanted. Never did any serious load work. It likes RL26 and 160 ABs though as you can see. I took a 146" MO whitetail 2 Nov this year with it at 573 yards right at dark, so the combo works extremely well. Stock is Gen 1 Remington Titanium (ADL) bedded. Have dies, brass and extra bullets with complete deal.

Comes with talley rings and Vortex 2.5-10 Razor LR HD with the HSR-4 reticle (2MOA hash marks and they work as you can see from the 573 yard kill.

Weight as you see it is 8 lbs 2 oz on my scales.

After multiple shoulder operations, just getting rid of anything above 6.5 or 7-08.

$1800 shipped to FFL that will take from individuals, for complete outfit. $1300 for rifle only

will do a 3 month layaway.

Not any trade items needed at this time.
