    Custom 6.5-284

    This was kim jons one not long had it havnt fired it yet. Have just had nelson collie fit wyatt extended box mag and bed into stock. Stock is from rem 700 titanium I believe . Barrel lothar walther barrel 22 inch. Plenty of good bits nice and light at 7lbs with a compact scope. Comes with a bunch of reloady bits including dies brass ect. Have a few boxes of assorted pills too including amaxs and Lrabs. Does not come with scope have used that on another project. Has talley lightweights fitted lapped to action. Dont want to sell but a very rare rifle ive been wanting came up at a great price so I braught it as you do. Looking at $1500 or will consider swaps for decent shotgun plus cash or other stuff. Really want a benelli m2 or something similar but will check out any solid deals. Cheers.

    You can buy lapua brass off the shelf gibo, it's one of those wildcats that became so popular it is now a factory chambering.

    55 is longer? Would be a set back and rechamber if there is enough Knox?

    If it's light and shoots ok that's a cool, cheap oddball rig. Easy as to load indeed.
    If I hadn't been spending up a storm I'd be interested.

    I believe it was a 260 or similar before it was reamed to the 284 varient . unfired in this state and the gunsmiths that had seen it said it had done next to no work by their eye.

    Free bump.

    I think you have it arse backwards, he has a 6.5x55 and wants to turn it into 6.5-284 not the other way round.
