    Guys,

    I'd like to get this out there & see if I can generate any interest.

    Build Details:
    6.5x280 Ackley Improved
    Remington 700 Action
    Bolt fluted, skeletonized & bolt handle installed by Twisted Barrel
    Tubb Speedlock Firing Pin
    Bartlein 5R #3 SS Barrel 1:8 Fluted 26"
    Timney 510 Trigger @ 2#
    PTG .300 tapered SS recoil lug
    McMillan Game Scout Stock (Tan w/ black speckletone)
    Remington BDL Bottom Metal
    Seekins forend rail w/ sling swivel
    Atlas BT10 V8 Bipod (Rail mount, not QD model)
    Warne Maxima Tactical scope base
    Warne Maxima 30mm low scope rings
    Huskemaw Blue Diamond 4-16x42
    Huskemaw Sunshade
    Holland 30mm scope level
    Cerakoted barreled action & bottom metal Armor Black
    Pillar/Devcon epoxy bedded action to stock
    Riflesmithing by West Texas Ordnance

    This rifle has exactly 553 rounds down the barrel. The guys at WTO scoped this barrel at 448 rounds & estimated that it had greater than 50% barrel life remaining, possibly much greater. This rifle has been used & hunted with, but never abused. All hunting has been Texas style enclosed deer blind hunting, which is really easy on equipment. I've made an honest effort to baby this rifle at the range too. Never more than 5 shots in sequence & always a couple minutes cooling time between each of those 5 shots. Significant cooling time between shot strings. I'm currently shooting the 143 ELD-X over RL26 in Nosler 280AI brass with Federal 210M primers. This load averages 3150 fps with a SD of 4 & ES of 9. This rifle & load combination is very capable of 0.5 MOA, when I can do my part.

    I've got about $4,200 invested here, not including reloading tools. I'd take $2,750 for this turnkey setup shipped & insured to your FFL in basic plano type plastic hard case. I'll take $1,800 for the rifle without scope, scope level or rings.

    I'll also include a Redding Type S 280 AI neck die with 6.5mm decapping rod & carbide expander ball, 4 Redding titanium nitride coated bushings to neck the 280 brass down to 6.5, a 280 AI Redding Body die, a 6.5x284 Forester micrometer seating die (this is what I use for bullet seating), a forester die box, 35 pieces of twice fired & 15 pieces of once fired Nosler Brass.

    As for trades/partial trades I'd consider the following:

    Huskemaw Blue Diamond 5-20x50
    Nightforce SHV 5-20x56 with MOAR reticle
    Nightforce NXS 5-22x50 with MOAR or MOART reticle & zerostop
    Timney Calvin Elite Custom Rem 700 trigger
    APA Gen 2 Little Bastard muzzle brake

    The question has been asked several times, so I'll take $2250 for everything listed minus scope, rings & scope level. I'd like to keep the rest together.

    I've just updated the trade list in the initial post because I've firmed up the direction that I'm going to take on my next build

    Reduced price to $2,750 for the whole package or $1,800 for everything except scope, scope level & rings. If rifle sales without scope, then I'll post scope separately. This is the one & only time that i'm going to reduce this one. If it doesn't sale at this price then I'll hold onto it.
