    Hey guys,

    I finally finished my version of the ultimate long range coyote rifle. This rifle was put together by that guy at PPR. You know, that guy that does all the bolt fluting. LOL. I coated all metal in Sniper Grey Cerakote.
    Chambered in 6.5 x 47 Lapua. Load development was short and sweet. 38.0 gr. of Varget over a 130 Berger VLD does the trick nicely. I decided to make my own muzzle brake out of a remnant of barrel. Worked out nicely.
    And the best part is that the rifle comes in at 10.5 lbs. all up. Time to find some coyotes!


    Here are the specifics of the build:

    Bighorn short action
    Bighorn 20 MOA base
    McMillan A-5 with the Edge Tech. 2.25 lbs.
    Jewell Trigger set at 8 oz.
    Hart barrel fluted by PPR
    Chambered in 6.5x47 Lapua by PPR
    Pillar Bedded by PPR
    Nightforce 3.5 x 15 x 56 w/ M.O.A. reticle
    PT&G bottom metal w/AI mag
    Atlas bi-pod

    Thanks for checking it out.

    Paul

    Looks awesome! I was looking at building a 6.5x47L for a deer rifle.

    That is an awesome looking rifle! Interesting caliber, too.

    If you don't mind me asking, but what would it cost to build one identical to it, but in a LA instead of a SA? Minus the scopes & rings...
