After a 9 month wait, she is finally finished. I am so happy at the way this one turned out. Going to start load development this weekend with 140 hybrids and Varget and see how she runs. Built by Aaron Roberts at Roberts Precision in Spring. He has built several rifles for me and his work is impeccable.

Great rifle.

That 47L will get the job done very easily. One of the most inherently accurate cartridges ever.

Nice, agree, only the 6BR has equalled/surpassed accuracy IME.

Great rifle, I know how it will perform

I am VERY interested in your report on the scope. I love seeing some new stuff on these new rifles RE; Kahles optics and the Hawk Hill barrel, new one to me also.

I have 4 Kahles scopes now, although this is my first Gen 3. My only real complaint with the Gen 2's is that I can never get a crystal clear picture at 100 yards and in. Past 100 it the most impressive glass I have ever looked through. Other than checking zero, I dont ever use it at 100 yards anyway, so it was never that big of a deal. With the Gen 3's, they have fixed that problem. I can get it focused at 100 and it tracks perfectly. And, I actually think the glass is even better to my eyes anyway.

I have always been a Bartlein guy. When my action came in, I couldn't find a M40 Bartlein. Aaron had a M40 Hawk Hill in stock. He told me he has one on his match gun, so, I took the leap of faith that if it is good enough for him, it is surely good enough for me. So, we will see how she shoots. Oh, one other thing. I have always used Timney triggers on all of my rifles. I let him talk me into a Jewell for this gun and holy crap is it nice. I really think it will be worth the extra coin. Overall I am really happy with the way this gun came together and all the components.

Keep a spare Timney in your pack. Sunday, yet again a guy was shooting a stage, and he had a trigger that didn't fire until three seconds later. Fortunately he kept the muzzle down range. I nudged my buddy standing next to me and said "listen to what brand of trigger it is". Someone near the shooter asked, Yup, it's a Jewel.

Jewell makes GREAT aftermarket triggers, you could put their "factory" in my garage.

I have also heard what JG said happen before by a gunsmith who started with GAP, he suggested a Rifle Basix on my custom 7mmWSM because it would run very dirty. It was as good as the Jewell for sure.

Never owned a Timney but you cant argue with their track record and the fact they listen to their customers and produce what they ask for...great company.


okierifleman, I would do what Arron said too, the guy is awesome. I may start a build with him since it wont be ready anytime soon. did you gather the parts or did you tell him what you wanted and he gathered them?
