Liberty: There is No Greater Cause

The rifle build is finally complete, and I was greeted to a gun case on my doorstep Saturday with a return address of LongRifles, Inc.

To say that the care in packaging taken by the folks at LRI was superb and left nothing to chance, would still be an understatement. Every piece, down to each piece of the scope rings, was in a ziplock plastic bag, inside a sealed paper bag, and wrapped in at least twice as much bubble wrap as would get the job done. The case itself was sealed with duct tape and had a zip tie through each of the 6 hasps for locks. Needless to say, everything arrived to perfect condition. The 2-day shipping was a bonus too!

I began putting some copper and lead into some brass today to work up to and find max pressure loads for this rifle, using H4350 of course. I also put together 10 lower pressure rounds to entertain myself a bit until I have the time for extensive load work-up. I’ll give a short update after I shoot it, but more in-depth shooting and reviews will be on hold until after my 3 week (hopefully less!) archery elk hunt set for the fast approaching beginning of September.

Here’s some eye candy, click each thumbnail for high-resolution pics as always.

Thanks for visiting! Please let me know what you think of the build in the comments. What would you have done differently?

Thank You Again, Look for more soon. And thanks to everyone who has come across from The Hide and elsewhere to follow along, you guys have helped me with this build immensely. Thank You to Chad and company at LongRifles, Inc., Branden at Custom Gun Coatings, Tom at Manner’s Stocks, Scott at Liberty Optics, Greg at Southern Precision, Eric at EuroOptic, and everyone else that built or sold me a piece of this build, and to the anonymous forum members whose opinions and reviews helped shape this build.

    • Jason,

      Thanks for taking the time to read. It has been shooting pretty good, but I haven’t been getting behind it that much yet with other things getting in the way. Only 140 rounds to date so far. That being said I have done some load development with 130 bergers and H4350 with great results. I am new to this game as I said in my opening post about the build, but I have had no problems shooting in the 3’s with pretty much anything I’ve fed it and plenty of groups in the 2’s as well.

      I thought my load development was done, but every 15 rounds or so I have one case that has a little sticky bolt lift or a slight extractor cut mark so I am dialing it back half a grain or so, especially since it has been relatively cool when shooting (80) for South Texas and I can anticipate a little hotter burn come next summer when it reaches into the 100’s and beyonf. I would rather make that change now than later.

      Thanks for the read Jason.

      -Dave
