    7mm FX (7mm-338 Lapua Improved)

    Barnard PL short action (15mm shorter than regular PL action) that has been lightened by dual porting, fluting the bolt etc. Nickel plated, 25 MOA rail. Bartlein 30" fluted 3B profile barrel. 1 in 9 twist. Ti 3 port brake. McMillan Game Scout edge tech stock. Comes with cheek riser as pictured. Total weight as pictured 4,710g, approx 3,950g minus scope and rings

    I don't have an exact round count for it but if it's not 170 then it's very close. Using 180gr hybrids at 3,400fps. Only run US869 in it which is "easier" on the barrel that bigger stick powder. Barrel has been properly treated, no long strings of shots or rapid fire.

    Comes with 50 x formed cases (Lapua 338LM cases necked down, improved and neck turned) that have been annealed. I have another 60 odd newly formed cases that I'll sell at cost. NO dies included as my brother also has a 7mmFX so keeping them. I'm happy to reload for the buyer, including annealing and cleaning the cases. I have plenty of US869 and 180gr hybrids that the rifle buyer has first option on. If you want to get your own dies, NZ Hunter can supply them.

    Does not include scope or rings pictured. Selling to help fund other projects. Build cost $6.5k+. Wanting $3,350.

    I'd possibly consider trades. Not semi autos though...

    Remington short action chassis/prone style stocks, FFP or SFP Mil scopes, bolt action 17hmr, 17wsm of possibly 17 Hornet

    Sam has only good gear and treats it well. Unfortunately hes also a good shot so not many follow up shots required!

    You must be getting soft Muzr, that's the nicest thing you've ever said about me! It turns out that you are a better shot than me though (Luckily I threw Sunday's match)

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.
