Up for sale is my .280 AI built by Travis and the crew at TS Customs. (http://www.tscustom.com/). This rifle was built for me in the fall of 2015. I find myself having more time for precision rifle matches and less time for hunting big game - only reason for the sale. Conservative estimate is 200 rounds fired. Gun shoots retumbo and H4831SC really well with 168 VLD's around 2,900 FPS. The reamer has 0.100" FB so the 168's are setup nicely in the case neck.

Rifle Specs:
Stiller Predator LA w/ 20 MOA Rail
Bartlein #3 @ 25" (1:9.5 twist)
McMillan / PSW Rifleman Stock. professionally bedded. Flush cups on the LH side. Screws for swivel studs on bottom as well.
Hawkins Precision BDL
Timney #510 Trigger timed to action - pull wt. is right around 1.75 lbs. I believe.
Everything is cerekoted black. Stock is black with tan web. Bare rifle weight was 8.3 lbs. on a postal scale. This is a full-blown custom. Stock is inlet perfectly for the stiller and appropriate barrel channel - the attention to detail on this one is exceptional. Just a nice all around meat stick.

Asking $2,650 shipped to FFL. FFL must accept from non FFL (Me).

You sure that is a Bartlein #3? Looks heavier than my Bartlein #3 & #3b. Could be an optical illusion.

Beautiful rifle. I LOVE my .280AI.

Yes sir.. 100% sure it's a Bart #3. The view 'looking back' at the rifle so to speak is an optical illusion.. camera trying to turn a 3D part into a 2D image.. it looks like its getting heavier the closer you get to the muzzle. Not a custom contour from Bart.. LOL.
