anyone got a bare stiller tac30 action laying around they can weigh for me? I am trying to break down the weight on my rifle to see where I can drop some weight on the next build?

Thanks

Walter

Thinking a more refined match rifle. I weighed mine and it opened my mind some. Now it weighs 15 lbs give or take. I am thinking

Gap temptest action
manners elite stock with net me one less lb
and a varmint or palma contour barrel should net me 2 lbs less or so.

Trying to be around 11-12 lb weight and I think it is do able.

But this won't happen tomorrow or next week. It will take me a bit to make it happen.

15 lbs, is that the 243 with the break on it? If it is no wonder you can spot your own shots.

We are going for 6.5lbs for the rifle sans scope on the build I have going now, different plans for the rifle though than yours.

They look really nice. Have they ever said who is making them? I haven't been on the Hide since they moved so have on seen it a little bit.

George said that they are not made by defiance, they are made by one of his friends that wanted to take on the project, but that is all he has said. Some people have speculated that it is badger but that is only speculation.

Yessir that is the one. and yeah I can spot hits at 200 easily. No recoil is an understatement. But I am thinking 12 lbs will be magical. Still a break to reduce recoil and enough weight to help with recoil.

Yeah, I know, I know. But the one in the video I had to adjust my glasses. They really suck with my ear muffs and won't stay in place. So when I was prone half my scope was covered by the frame. Some in the ear electronic plugs are in order.
