    Brand new build by olddominioncustomrifles.com
    (Accuracy tested)
    .280 Remington Ackley Improved
    Extended throat option to shoot heavy 7mm bullets
    Blueprinted 700 Action
    PTG Fluted bolt with M16 extractor with .062 benchrest firing pin.
    Swept bolt handle
    McMillian Hunters Edge Stock
    HS Precision Gen 2 DBM
    Jewell Trigger
    Lilja #4 3-groove barrel recessed target crowned

    Selling to fund a roofing repair, unfortunately

    $2100 plus shipping and insurance
    Will ship in a hard case with 25pieces of fireformed Norma brass

    This gun is a performer! With the throat extended it leaves room for a little extra powder and is getting 7mm Mag velocities. @WSMNUT smithed it. He calls it Ackley Improved Improved. :p

    Also, with the HS DBM and the PTG Bolt it feeds and ejects like a big game rifle should (even with the Ackley case)

    Say it ain’t so!
    I know you need a roof but that was one sweet build.

    Maybe you should post some pics of the groups with the speeds you were getting.
