    260 Remington build completed!!

    So far, my only compliant about the scope is the weight, which is 40oz. Other than that, I am impressed with the zero stop and illumination.

    34 mm rings

    I use Hawkin's Precision for my 34mm, they are direct mounts and do not require a picatinny rail.

    Your preferred data log book?

    I looked at impacts data books and was completely blown away at the number of different pages that are available to choose from. I did not end up purchasing anything...i don't know where to even start? Perhaps a pre-made book would be good for beginners?

    Long Range Rifle on a Budget

    The stock looks inexpensive...like it is gonna snap in half. Other than that I think it is a fine build under the financial constraints. I am not familiar with T/C rifles, does it have a detachable magazine?

    260 Remington build completed!!

    Thank you for your input. First, the gunsmith did not ask me if I would like the brake "clocked" a few degrees nor did he mention it upon delivery.

    It very well may shoot great, I don't know, so I don't wanna flame them or discredit them. But regarding the other issues...different story.

    CarbonSix barrels

    No I cannot shoot it because I had to send the barreled action to Kampfeld Customs to have the muzzle brake properly timed/fixed, a thread protector fabricated and a side bolt stop/release added (CarbonSix does not do side bolt stop/release). In addition, here in Michigan it is too cold to shoot...

    CarbonSix barrels

    I just finished a build using one of their barrels and I am very disappointed with their work. Long story short, they blueprinted my Rem 700, installed the barrel and muzzle brake. They instructed me to send them my Recoil Lug because I wanted to use a particular one which they kept and then...

    260 Remington build completed!!

    No problem, this afternoon I will post a close-up of the muzzle brake. Are you interested in the muzzle brake itself or the incorrect indexing?

    260 Remington build completed!!

    I was hoping to have the weight between 6-7 pounds not including the scope and bipod. I now realize that if I would have used the Remington model seven action instead, I would have hit my mark most likely.
