    Ironically, it comes all in at 6.5 lbs.
    Going to do some load development next week and see how it spits them out.

    That is a thing of beauty. You need to put that on LRO rifle build section.

    Joel,

    That rifle is truelly a thing of beauty. Would you happen to have a small break down of individual component weights. May be building something very similar in the near future. Really digging your Titanium action. :D:D
    Thanks Joel ;)

    I have a 338 rum getting put together right now on his terminus action. I'd love to see a long action ti option!

    Right now atm, I have a 257 saum that will be shipping to me Monday, the 338 rum should be done in 2-3 weeks, then a 300wsm ultralight that will hopefully be done in January. Straight jacket armory is also doing my 7ss Max which should be done after 1st of year. In the mean time, I'm going to sell a custom, and all my non custom rifles to finance the others lol. Can you say addiction?

    I really like the looks and the weight of that rifle. I just ordered a Cooper western classic in 6 creed and planning a long range 6.5 something around the new 156 grain Berger. After the Cooper I’m out of lesser guns I’m willing to sell to finance this addiction. Get a second job maybe???

    Here’s the Helios Lite.

    The Apollo Lite and the Apollo will accept a 3.000” internal box mag. They will handle the 6.5 PRC out of a BDL set up.
