Robert is a great smith running a really tight ship... I was one of the first ones to come visit their shop. They are putting out some really really cool products at a fantastic price... lots of intestine things in the works that I am not at liberty to talk about. Stop in and talk to the guys you won't regret it... and drool over the 26 nossler they built 2

I think they're pretty busy. I never could get through on Tuesday. Should be a good sign. I'm really wanting one from them too

What kind of intestine things are they building?

They are a ton of help and will spend all day answering your questions! I just dropped off a remington short action with them that is going to be turned in to a 260 AI. I can't hardly wait for the build to be done!!

I may have to put them to the test on the all day part!

I see that several rifles on their site say "Accuracy Guaranteed", but I can't find an accuracy guarantee anywhere on their site. Are they guaranteed to shoot 5 MOA or .25 MOA or somewhere in between?

This is a guy from a user on another site that recently had a 260AI built by Alamo Precision. From what I've seen/heard from Robert, pretty much all of their guns will shoot .5moa, but some may be capable of .25moa. The owner of this gun got a 1.5" group at 400yrds while fire forming his loads.

Out of a 24" barrel this was his load and velocities

130g berger hunting, h4831sc powder, cci 200 primers, lapua brass

45.0 grains - 2674 fps 26 - Extreme sp

46.5 grains - 2769 fps 16 - Extreme sp

49.0 grains - 2886 fps 26 - extreme sp

49.5 grains - 2905 fps 54 - extreme sp and pressure signs

A few of the accuracy pics

It depends. Do you have all the parts and just need them to assemble or do you need to them to order everything for you? Alamo Precision would give you the best answer on this. I know they've got quite a few orders right now, so it might be a bit.

They will be installing a Wyatt's magazine box to hopefully avoid any cycling issues.

Based on those velocities I'd suggest H-4350 instead. My straight up .260 was running 130's @ 2850 fps on a brand new barrel. 200 rounds later and formed brass it was making 2950 fps MV. Why I switched over to 140's after 500 of those 130's.
