    Rifle is actually about 14 years old it has seen lots of us it's basically my goto rifle, Deer Bear,Pigs,Yotes,Target. Only the chambering is fairly new here's my short list.
    1- Barrel=Shilen
    2- caliber 25-284
    3- bbl length=24"
    4- twist 1 in 10
    5- I use 100 grain and 85 grain bullets only
    6- H1000 and H4350 are m powder choices
    7- Lapua 6.5-284 brass and also Winchester 284 brass are both used depending on load.
    Smiths used are
    1-Bullberry
    2-Kampfeld customs
    3-Jim in cali
    Gun as originally a 250 Improved and shot very good but I tired of it and wanted something different and the 25-284 is what fit the chamber best without setting the barrel back and losing anything not to mention removing and re welding the barrel lug.

    thanks for the compliments and interest from everyone:)

    Nice wood I can see a woman's face in stock. I could never hunt with that I would spend all my time looking at the wood
