    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...

    260 rem set up for AIAW mags
    Badger M2008 action
    Badger DBM
    Badger EFR
    Badger rings
    Bartlein barrel finished at 24"
    Macmillan A5 stock
    x-treme trigger
    Thunderbeast 30P-1
    Bushnell HDMR with the Gap reticle 3-21x


    This is an interesting picture... the face of the bolt after firing a single proof round at 60,000 PSI:

    260AI set up for AICS mags (both 10-rnd but single-stack vs double)
    Bighorn action
    Surgeon DBM
    Badger EFR
    Talley rings
    Bartlein barrel finished at 29"
    Macmillan A5 stock
    x-treme trigger
    Thunderbeast 30P-1
    S&B PMII with P4F reticle 5-25x

    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!

    Yeah. The stock alone is a bit over 5.5 pounds. Given my fused neck, it is a dream to shoot.

    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.

    Savage Mod 10 (began life as a WalMart package gun)
    ER Shaw .308 barrel.
    Bennie Coolie muzzle brake
    PDC Custom stock with AICS mags

    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.

    They look like Sinclair or similar F-Class bipods to me. Pricey.
