    Selling my 300 NMI rifle I built with hope's of competing in an ELR 2K yard match. Just ain't gonna have the time to do it with work so I need to offload the rifle.

    Rifle only has 50 rounds down the barrel. I 9nly did initial speed testing. Found a promising load that was shooting around 2" at 500 yards, but never tuned it any further due to lack of time.

    Rifle specs:

    Action - Defiance Deviant Tactical Lapua, Single shot, integral 30 MOA picatinny rail, integral recoil lug, right bolt/left port, PVD coated bolt. Full specs listed below in photo.

    Trigger - Jewell HVR bottom safety set at around 3 oz.

    Stock - Manners T4A, heavy fill, custom Arca swiss rail on fore end and bag riding rail on rear (all removeable), custom paint. Bedded to action with Marine Tex

    Barrel - Broughton 308 cal 1 in 8" twist, 5C rifling, heavy contour, 31" long

    Brake - Area 419 Sidewinder self timing brake. Stainless steel nitrided. Excellent recoil reduction.

    Accessories:
    - Custom built heavy bipod with fully adjustable fulcrum point on the Arca rail
    - Custom 4" wide front rest bag riding plate that also attaches to the Arca rail.
    - Custom adjustable height rear rail ski monopod

    I can send more photos if interested. Asking $2900 shipped for everything (not including scope or mount in pictures).

    Man... I want this. Do you just fire form from factory ammo? Or do you need to load custom ammo with a false shoulder?

    Responded to your PM.

    But yes, you can fire factory 300 Norma Mag ammo in it to form 300 NMI brass for handloading.

    Ryan Pierce fires factroy Berger 300 Norma Mag ammo in nearly all of the 300 NMI rifles he builds.

    Heres a few more groups fired while breaking in the barrel and doing a little bit of initial load testing with 3 shot groups. Never found the time to really tune it in after break in. Shouldn't take much tuning to dial her in.

    100 yards

    500 yards. Hardly any vertical at all

    Forgot to mention that the rifle comes with a carbon fiber mirage shade, and the bolt has been PVD coated. Bolt cycling is super smooth with the coating and excellent trigger timing.

    This rifle will recoil like a .308 without M.B.
    With 215 BH anyone will enjoy this from 100yrds to 1500 yrds . Point is,Its not only about elr

    Recoil is actually a lot less than a 308.
    More like a mild 223. Seriously.
    It's a heavy rifle and recoil is virtually non-existent.
