    7mmFX (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.

    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. Build cost $6.5k+. Wanting $3,900.

    It's 4.7kg as pictured. 3.9kg minus scope and rings. Bolt doesn't have an ejector, I'll check the loaded round part to confirm but I'm going to say no although it's quick to pull the bolt and flick the loaded round out as there's no ejector pressure trying to force the round out (does that make sense?)

    Nope! Got a couple of new 1's arriving soon... And another barrel arriving for my newest toy, so in the interests of long term peace I'm thinning out a few
