it's been a while since I posted some pics so I thought I would share some of the latest rifle I just had built by GA Precision this week (I got to drive to their shop in Kansas City and watched them make it) and what my primary match rifle looks like on its 3rd barrel...

just some random comments on the differences:
obviously one gun is set up for lefty (me) and the other for righty.

Badger action has 60* bolt throw but seems harder to lift (of course, it's also brand new)

The badger action has 6 lugs and is a custom clone of the Accuracy International, where the bighorn is a custom clone of the remington 700 footprint with the savage 2 lug floating-bolt-head design.

Though I can't say from personal experience, the badger extractor/ejector is supposed to be much more reliable than other designs and i have had considerable grief in that dept.

I like the guard around the magwell on the surgeon DBM more than the flush fit of most DBM.

Big difference in the magazine height between AICS and AIAW mags.

I went with a 5" shorter barrel on the new one and switched to standard 260 instead of ackley improved. Will be interesting to see what velocity I get. I plan to shoot only factory ammo in the new gun. I'm not reloading for it.

the x-treme trigger is the best 2-stage you can get imho. love it.

The new gun is cerakoted in mil-spec OD green, though it looks almost sea-green in the pics. crappy iphone photos.

The thunderbeast titanium suppressors rock. definitely my favorite by a wide margin.

macmillan stocks are nice, but the new manners stocks are friggin awesome. definitely getting one of their folders next.

the bushnell scope is pretty cool. VERY short, which is great for using the clip on NV. It also has an impressive zoom range and the reticle is very nice. The scope is basically set up well for people who don't usually dial shots, and you have to pull the knobs up to turn them.

Sweet new rifle Tom, my 260 should be done in a few weeks I'm gonna give AW mags a run for a bit, there even shorter than my alpha mags. Also finally cracked and picked up a 30p-1 that can't come soon enough. Maybe it will be here in time to ring steel at ur new range ;)

Wow those look like a lot of fun. Love that photo of the bolt face...are you saying mine shouldn't look like that? ;)

So why only factory ammo in the new rifle?

My favorite to shoot is my M700 Police. As you might assume, at about 19 pounds, recoil is nearly none existent. I bought it for varmint hunting, and (hopefully) getting into 1000 yard steel shooting. Here are the basics:

Rifle: M700 Police
Chambering: .308 Win
Stock: B&C Fully adjustable stock
Trigger: Timney 1.5 lb trigger (also have the 4 ounce trigger)
Optic: Nightforce 12-42X56
Rings: Leupold Mark 4, 30mm
Base: Farrell picatinny

geno, 19 lbs? wow! the 29" bbl match rifle with the S&B, with can and sling weighs 17.5 lbs.

chase, you will love the thunderbeast.

dentite, the new gun with 24" bbl was built to be a loaner of sorts, for when i take people (mostly new shooters) to the range (which is nearly every time i go). I got tired of loading 260AI for them to shoot and putting wear on my match bbl. So now they can shoot all they want, just have to bring/buy their own ammo. :)

esheato, i've won several matches with the 260AI. shoots great. the other rifle is brand new and unfired by me as i'm waiting for UPS to bring my ammo for it. So far, just a single proof round down the tube. it was a 1 hole group though!

Mid-build right now. Savage 110BA in .300 Win Mag, Rifle Basix SAV-1 trigger set to 16 oz, Atlas Bipod, Nightforce rings, cant indicator and tilt angle indicator, US Optics SN-3 1700.... still hasn't come in yet.

It also needs an accushot monopod.

Is it a bad thing that I am completely captivated by the Ruger? I would be tickled shatless to own any of the other guns, but that Ruger is just awesome.

Can I get some info on that gun 451? I've got a rifle in the cabinet that I swear is almost a twin. Mine is an 84 M77 in 308 with the factory 24" "heavy" barrel. It doesn't have a specific "varmint" or "target" marked on the barrel, but it is definitely more robust that your average sporter weight. It is a very nice polished blue with walnut stock also.

It is a late 70's gun, I did add a Timney trigger. The barrel is the heavy Ruger barrel. Back in the day Ceiner wasn't always the ******* the feds turned him into, he cut and crowned the barrel then turned it down and made the shroud so without the can on it it look like a slightly short standard heavy barrel. I don't know anyone who does similar work today.

If you clicked on the video link you will hear just how quiet it is, I am shooting under a steel roof cover and my voice at normal speaking volume is still much loader.

In the picture it's wearing a Bushnell E4200 3-12x44 with an illuminated FFP mil-dot reticule mounted on an EGW base with Burris XTR rings.

It now wears a SWFA SS 5-20x50 FFP HD scope in Seekins rings with a Weaver base.

Something doest sound right, a factory barreled action in a BC stock shouldnt weigh that.

These two are in the 19lb catergory. The first one is wearing a 30 inch 1.250" straight Krieger with NF. The other a 24 inch Rock MTU with US OPtics.

dubbleA:

It's as close as I can gauge. I stepped on the bathroom scale without the rifle, then picked it up. As close as I could read the dial, it increased about 19 pounds. That weight reflects the bi-pod, sling, everything but ammo. Regardless the precise pounds weight, it's a nice, heavy rifle. With my fused neck, heavier is better. :)

Helo Taxi...Hows the ER Shaw bbl shoot and clean up?

helotaxi
February 13, 2012, 11:04 PM
The first 10 rounds after zeroing the scope were about 1MOA. That was with SSA 168gn SMKs IIRC. Most of my development loads have come in right around the 1 MOA mark for 5-shot groups. Clean-up, on the infrequent occasions that I run a patch down the barrel, has been really quick. Patch with Hoppe's Bore Gel, let it sit for a few minutes and 3-5 patches later they come out almost clean.

Also bear in mind that this is an off-the-shelf ER Shaw pre-fit from Midway that sells for $139. Additionally of the 3 Accutrigger rifles that I own, this one has by far the worst trigger. The trigger on my precision .243 (sorry no pics right now) is night and day better and it also has a Walmart package gun pedigree.

You said the one rifle is on its third barrel. What was the round life that you have experanced with those barrels?

taliv
February 13, 2012, 11:33 PM
accuracy dropped off pretty bad after 1500 rnds at 3047 fps on the first bbl, but i put about 1800 on it. second bbl got 2400 or 2500 rnds through it, but i reduced the powder and velocity to 2980ish (don't recall velocity exactly, but i'm counting rounds these days by stacking empty 100ct primer boxes on my desk... one stack for each bbl. heh. i don't keep data books anymore.) i'm at least 700 into the 3rd bbl and it's shooting really well right now. best of the 3 so far. interestingly, i special ordered the 260AI reamer with a specific neck size, and my smith said he chambered one other guy's gun with it, so this reamer is on it's 4th bbl.

Looking at those bipods (After looking at prices on Sinclair) made me realize.......

I need to make Bi-pods!

And I have the equipment and know how to boot! :D

Need a Custom Bi-pod?

This is my hunting rifle. Built 15 years old now Ruger mkII 7mm rem mag krieger 27" barrel timney #7 profile, trigger 1 1/2lb, boyds jr stock bedded and aluminum stud supports. Good 2"400 yard rifle with some same lot number factory ammo. Half that with handloads. Never intended to leave this scope on just short of money when rifle was built . Still works great 15 years later. Simmons atec 3.8-14 scope from first year productions. Pod is for picture only.
