    Based on a Kimber Montana action
    Carbon and Kevlar stock
    Schilen Barrel 26' long
    Fluted Barrel
    AB Precision radial brake
    Fluted Bolt
    Action fully trued by AB Precision
    Fully bedded
    Talley rings lapped
    Load development done by AB Precision

    Weighs 3.22kg all up minus scope so is definitely a practical long range rig

    Runs two loads a 140 Berger at a comfortable 3240 fps

    Or a 130 Swift Sirocco at 3423 fps

    Here is a breakdown of its build

    *Supply Shilen barrel
    *Fit barrel to action an crown
    (Tight chamber for the 6.5 wsm an throat for the mag box)

    *True action
    (Recut face, recut thread, true locking lugs, true bolt face and bolt locking lugs)

    *Flute Barrel (6x8mm)
    *Flute bolt (8x6mm)
    *Bed action
    (open barrel channel for bigger barrel to be floated, reseal and bed action)
    *Make and fit radial brake
    (thread barrel an make invisifit thread cap)
    *Supply and fit talley rings, lap and bed to action

    Custom dies

    140 Norma Brass

    Im after $2600 for it open to reasonable offers trades on rifles scopes etc

    Bigger as in 7mm but smaller case and shorter with a can as I have just starting hunting with a dog and don't think he'd appreciate the muzzle brake lol
    and I am not keen at all on cutting this and suppressing it as id consider it ruined and just wont do it

    all the figures you need to calculate that are provided, and it would completely depend on what mid range trajectory you were happy with

    Surely Camo wsm has the figures for ranges, as we have the speed. I'm a shooter, not a mathematician Bill
    How is she set up currently Camo? I'm comparing long range performance with my 6.5x55
