    6.5 Saum Rem 700 FS

    Having a tidy up at my place.

    Here is my 6.5 Saum SA Rem 700.



    24" 1-8 True-Flite barrel with 1/2 x 28 thread & protector.



    Lightened action & bolt, with lightweight firing pin & alloy shroud.



    HD Weaver 20 moa rail



    With the Stug stock it weighs 2.465 kgs, 5.43 lbs, so not heavy



    Took it up the range this morning with a few 143 ELDXs



    Looking for $2880 for it, more info here, http://www.nzhuntingandshooting.co.n...-5-saum-22226/ been sitting in the safe since then.

    Is that target showing average speed about 3120fps?
    Was that a fairly mild load?

    Not a mild load with the Brass I was using, Nosler 300 Saum.

    I think they do, can't recall if I checked or not, if not I will put an extended magbox in it.

    Hi Greg what sort of speeds would you expect from a 22" version with the 143grn ELDX

    IIRC from the first one I built years ago it was about 50 fps less but part of that can be the difference in barrels & actions.

    Greg, does the standard bolt have any issues being opened up for a magnum cartridge ? I read that there is trouble with the extractor etc but you have done few I think on the standard bolt face?

    You can open the Rem 700/Model 7 bolt face up to std mag & Lapua mag no trouble.

    You just need to fit either a Sako or M16 type extractor.

    Its a very common procedure
