    My new custom 28 Nosler

    Exciting day today, received my new custom rifle chambered for 28 Nosler.

    Heres the build specs.

    Stiller Predator action
    Stiller 20 moa rail
    Hawkins ultralight rings
    #3 Bartlein 8 twist barrel finished at 26 inch,
    Terminator T2 brake
    Calvin Elite trigger
    Wyatt extended mag box
    CF stock by Ken Henderson

    Smithed and put together by Dean Maisey

    Set up for 195 Bergers at an Oal of 3.725" Can fit two rounds in the mag.

    I'm very happy with the way it's come up. The stock is very smart and the fit and finish of everything is really nice.

    I'd like to thank a few fellas for their help.
    @Kiwi Greg at Terminator products for wise advice on the build and suppling barrel, brake, trigger and powder at decent prices and quick delivery.
    @camo wsm for great advice and his experience with custom rifle builds and suppling the very nice Hawkins rings.
    @ryansonghurst and @BRADS also gave some good advice on stocks and things.

    And lastly but certainly not least Dean Maisey in Tauranga for his solid advice and great smithing skills putting all the parts together into a really nice rifle.

    All very much appreciated lads. Looking forward to shooting it and dialing in a load now.

    Congrats Clint, that’s a very impressive bit of kit. What’s it weigh in at for bare rifle ? Be very interested to see how your load dev goes.

    I'm trying something a little different mate.

    I've just got in from the States an Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27x50. First impressions it looks really good, not light tho at 27 oz.

    FFP, HD glass, 90 MOA total adjustment, 25 moa per turn. Hard zero stop. Real usable illuminated reticle (unlike my vortex PST)

    Will see how it goes, if it doesn't measure up I'll be looking for something else once the piggy bank has recovered ��

    I can't find my bloody digi scales, so havnt weighed it as yet, but with the #3 barrel at 26" and LA it's a fair chunk heavier feeling than my 22" mod 7 7mm Saum but that is dam light at 3.1kg scoped.

    Thanks Eben, its a slippery slope this custom business. Once you start with one good part you kinda gotta keep going ��
