    It pains me to see this one go, but it needs to be used more than I can right now.
    Great rifle - balances and shoots great.
    Here are the specs:

    Action: Remington 78 Long Action (a 700 action w/ slightly different bolt/handle - same action/same performance/fitting/stock as 700)

    Barrel: 22" Rem. Sporter contour in 338/06 Ackley Improved bored and smithed by the late Dick Nickel in Washington (amazing work!)

    Stock: Remington 700 ADL factory stock, professionally glass bedded action and tang, custom paint job. New Rem Supercell recoil pad.

    Trigger: Older Rem. 700 Factory trigger, professionally tuned to a crisp 2.85lbs.

    The rifle has been fired only 311 times via my logbook. I have years of loading data that comes with the rifle, with documented MOA (or better) loads with 200, 210, and 225gr. bullets. (showed promise w/ 250gr. @ 1.5" with very little development). Great shooter all around.

    Rifle comes with Redding 2 FL Die Set (w/ tapered expander), 40 count fireformed WW brass, and some miscellaneous bullets.

    Scope: Burris FFII 2-7x35 (ballistic plex) - matte, glass is perfect.
    Mounts: Talley Lightweights (lows)

    Rifle/Scope Package: $670 OBO
    Rifle/Dies (w/o scope and mounts): $520 OBO

    Please email for pictures and with any further questions , I would be happy to answer them!

    timnelson22 "at" gmail.com

    Would consider shipping (add $25, FFL use etc.) but would prefer in Colorado (Denver metro) - either way, we can work something out.

    Open to full or partial trades for Rem 700 SS long actions, or LA standard rifles, or Leupold 2-7, or 2.5-8x scopes.


    Thanks for looking-
