I wanted to share a little update on the action I won here on LRH through the "LRH Giveaway Contest". It's a Northwest Action Works trued Remington 700 stainless action. I had NWAW install a fluted 26" stainless Benchmark barrel chambered in 300 RUM with a Ross Schuler brake, PTG lug, Timney trigger set at 1 1/2#, and they milled the action to fit a Wyatts extended mag box. I put the barreled action into my HS Precision stock and bolted on my 5-20X50 Blue Diamond Huskemaw scope into the Talley tall rings. Evan and Mason were great to work with throughout this build and I think it turned out fantastic. I got to do some shooting with it over the past weekend and I am extremely happy with the results so far. I have done almost no load work up so far and have hit my furthest targets yet. Out to 1,460 yards! I haven't gotten to shoot for groups at longer ranges yet but I like what I have seen so far. The target attached is from 2-100 yard groups I shot with this gun the first time at the range behind my dads house the day before I shot it to 1460. 1 3 shot group is covered by the sticker immediately to the right of the second 3 shot group. My dads range is only 100 yards. The load I am shooting is a 215 Berger hybrid over 94 grains of Retumbo, CCI 250 primer in Norma brass and is 3.130" base to ogive. I would like to thank Len and Andy Backus here at Long Range Hunting.com and Evan Pine and Mason Watters at Northwest Action Works for the opportunity at this gun and for building a great shooting and hunting rig.
