Hey folks I want to share a few photos of my new shooting iron. I bought it from a man in Missouri who builds some nice rifles. Itís the first Friday off Iíve had in a while so I went shooting this morning and I decided to snap a few photos before cleaning and returning to the safe.

The rifle is built on a Left hand C series Remington short action. The barrel is a Hart#2 stainless 24Ē 1-8 twist. The stock is a McMillian Remington classic ADL 13.5Ē lop standard fill 50/50 black and orange. The bolt ti fluted by Karl Kampfeld and is finished and bedded. Cerekoted by Eddie Fosaugh titanium and graphite black. It has a Talley base and rings. .Bare gun weighs 6.5#.

The rifle is chambered in 6.5 Creedmoor and it shoots 130 grain Accubond's like a champ! I've got some 120 grain Hornady Superformance I'll try with it next time.

Later Taters, Baker

Very nice southpaw rig. If you'd will it to me, I'd appreciate it.

Nice! Don't see too many short action 700's with the bolt handle on the correct side.

Man, good looking rig, I like it as it resembles a hunter more than a target weapon. Stock actually works great in those colors too, mighty fine up

What did that thing set you back, if you care to share?
