    It’s a Lilja bbl on an older (90’s?) REM700 action. I bought this a couple of years back off member on here. Round count uncertain. I’ve only put about 20 rounds thru it in starting load dev with RL33.

    I’ve got some more info stored away somewhere from when I bought it, but might take me a few days to track it down
