Hands down the easiest hunting rifle I have to shoot extremely well. I love mine. One of these days I’ll shoot a deer with it if I find the right one. My sister in law has shot two with mine so far.

Well it was a tough hunt and I was too picky so tag soup for me but my sister in law filled hers on the last day for a little coues deer meat buck. 390yds with the 131BJ. In tight behind the shoulder and out the off side shoulder through the heart. Silver dollar exit and dropped him like a sack of hammers. Here’s the exit with the tips opened to .030”. Pretty happy with the performance. View attachment 222360View attachment 222361

Any idea what barrel life on the 25 SST might be? If it’s been asked on here I didn’t see it so forgive me if it was. I understand there are factors etc, just a general idea is all I was hoping for.

Don’t know of anyone that’s shot one out. CA48 has the highest round count that I’ve heard. My borescope shows a little wear and tear on mine at a touch over 200 rounds but just in the leade and I’m shooting n-565 which is a double base, high flame temp powder. Nothing much, just can see some. H-1000 I’m sure will produce considerable more life.

Well my 10 day California gun purgatory started today. 60 grns of 565 behind a 115 Berger seemed to work fine for the test rounds. The casings the smith sent back looked fine. Primers still rounded and no ejector marks. I’ll probably load up a few bergers to sight the scope in when I pick up the gun then move on to finding a good load for the 128 Hammer.
She looks naked but purdy so far! AnTi SA Mag with a 22” Bartlien Carbon 7 twist. Bolt was nitrited, left everything else stainless. When I get her home I’ll pillar/glass bed the Stocky’s VG2 carbon stock, add the trigger tech, PTG bottom Metal, and top her with a Leupold. 10 days can’t get here soon enough!!!
