Custom Rifle Project Complete: Photo Gallery | LongRifles, Inc., Stiller, Brux, Manners, Jewell, Bushnell, Seekins, JEC Customs, Atlas
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.
