    This gun we specifically built for the ABRA Nationals.
    We wanted to start off with a J N L's PRXIII Tuner, with a brass weight topped on it, then we went with a Shilen 4 Groove Ratchet, I had received a batch of these that slugged out very good. They are shooting excellent.
    Then I started looking at the receiver, I wanted a SS receiver that was made out of the same grade as the barrel, and Tactical Innovations was able to give me what I wanted. They have these in stock. There is a specific reason that I choose to go this way.
    Then we added a JWH bolt handle, spring, along with a Grand Master Bolt, that I did my magic to. Now on to the stock.
    This customer did not want a multi-colored laminated stock, he wanted to be a little eccentric. He acquired a couple pieces of Zebra wood.
    Now the completed project has turned into the gorgeous one of a kind BR Rifle.
    It heads to Wisconsin Monday Morning.

    his one was put together for one of our Texas youth shooters are present from her Dad.
    Unfortunately she ended up not feeling well put her Dad took it out for a test run last night at our IR 50/50 Match. He is new to bench rest shooting, but it ended up shooting a 249 card last night with 14 x count. It is going to be a shooter.
    It has a Shilen 4 Groove Rachet, J N L PRXIII Tuner, JWH Bolt, Custom ABRA Stock Kidd 2 Stage Trigger Tactical Innovation SS Receiver. She picked out the stock for herself.
    Take a look

    Have you used a Douglas 13” twist for any of your builds?

    What does it cost to get a rifle like this built? Might need one of these to go with my supergrade.
