    What bomb are you trying to fit through that hole?

    looks like an odd calibre, but i know nothing about pistol cals.

    G'Day Fella's,

    Here's an image of a few recently completed personal project rifles.
    All of this work was completed by myself

    From L to R, Rem 673 .350 Rem Mag, W Mk V .340 W/Mag, Surgeon Action, Rem 700 .308 and .223.
    All rifles have High Tech Specialties stocks and stocks and metal, have been Cerakoted (but not the metal on the .308).
    All have M/brakes of my design (the one on the .308 is a Proto-Type)
    The two m-700's have www.lumleyarms.com.au DBM's (316Grade S/Steel)
    etc, etc

    Doh!

    Thanks for the kind words Kokako!

    As delivered, these properly Laid-Up Fiberglass stocks weigh in at around 21ounces or 1 1/4 pound for a Rem 700.
    Stocks to suit others, can weigh a bit more. You will need to add some weight for a recoil pad, bedding compound and paint/Cerakote.
    Have a look at Welcome to High Tech Specialties

    Here is an image of a few of these stocks, as delivered and out of the mold, from different angles.

    At present, I'm fitting another HTS to a Win Mod 70. I should do a pictorial type story on it as a guide to What To Do and How you bed a barreled action, to a new stock.
    See how I go for time?

    Doh!

    its a 458 ACCREL from the forum accurate reloading, it is formed from RUM brass and is shortened and improved to give LOTT velocities from a standard long action.
    using a magnum bolt face, it is a realy simple rechamber, run thru the sizer trim and shoot to bump out the shoulder and fireform. custom dies from hornaday, and some once fired 300 rum brass, and i was away.

    G'Day Greg,

    OK, that explains the need for the 2 cross bolts and the extra (barrel mounted) recoil lug!
    Real Nice and well done!!!

    Doh!

    i probabaly should have mentioned i am living in southland but from the NT so i wanted a dedicated buffallo/backup/following up injured rifle, that will give me the stopping power i need for a wounded and pissed buff!

    SKINNY, whats not special about a loupie? or is that the point, its not special?
    i use loupold for no other reason than their durability, and after sales support. no open sights so i need it to hold up to severe conditions and abuse.

    cheers

    Bloody nice Greg. Your a craftsman. What does the devcon set like? Does work every batch? It looks like a metal set? I have never used it but have used the loctite A1 which is fickle but if ya get a good set will last for ever.
