Thanks Bigdaddy, I do take exceptional care of my equipment, I try to anyway. I never let any part of the gun go unattended to, they're just too expensive to replace. I'll post pics of my other rigs as well. I hope everyone else will do the same.

Finally finished putting together a custom .243 Winchester, based on a Mauser action made by Parker Hale.  After at least 100 hours of work, it is gorgeous.  I just have not found the time to take some pictures, but will do in the next day or two and post them.  Just for all those Leupold lovers, its wearing a VX-II 3x9 40mm.

Nice setup.  Just re-stocked a 300 Wby. and a 240 Wby. into Bell and Carlson Medalist stocks, unfortunately, with a fair amount of modifications in the same color and free floated the barrels.  Because of the amount of barrel channel material I needed to free float the barrel ( as they are set up for some barrel tip pressure), I have about 1/4 inch of the magazine showing at the back end, which is fine, as it was printing side by side shots, almost touching at 100 yards with a cold pencil barrel.  But when it is hot, look out for those fliers.  The 240 had a larger receiver bolt on the rear and in essence a pillar that contained the threads that had to fit into the stock.  Well, I had to drill out the stock and walla, perfect fit with a free floated barrel.  I have not shot that one yet.  Gorgeous rifle you have.

a little to the left at 200 yards ....lol...

 

here's a queston for ya'll, she has a HS composite stock ( which is a bit long on the LOP for me )  with a 1/4" recoil pad, if ya want to call it that ... any ideas on cutting down the stock and fitting a decelerator recoil pad on her?

Sinsir,

That really looks great and with that grouping! I have one on order and cannot wait! Hopefully I can get that same grouping. What ammo are you using?  I can see a lot of different boxes in the photo.Have you chronograpehed the bullets?



Posted By: sinsir
Date Posted: November/16/2007 at 20:10

thanks for the good words 8shot.

 

as a .308 standerd i use  168gr smk bthp's  and it's what i shot that group with. i don't own a chrono, so your guess is as good as mine....sorry. the winchester printed poorly at best, 2 1/2 inches at 200 yards, the fusion shot an ok group but was high and to the left by over an inch ....added info on the rig - replaced the trigger with a jewel, and have it set at 3 lbs, the action has been bedded, replaced the j-lock on the bolt with a tubbs speed lock, and removed just a bit of the barrel channel to insure freefloating. tourqued the action bolts to 55 lbs. besides that she's a stock rig that eats about 50-100 rounds a week.

These are my rigs:

30-06 Heym Left Hand, topped with a 3-9x40 Lynx scope. This rifle shoots sub MOA all day and have accounted for a lot of good hunting.

This is my current favourite hunting rifle: 300H&H Sako topped with a 3.5-10x40 Leupold. This rifle has had a new lefthand stock and a new barrel fitted. It has accounted for its fair share of game, but performance has been somewhat erratic due to several issues such as the stock, barrel and now trigger. I believe I have everything sorted now and am looking forward to settle down with the rifle for some rock solid dependable hunting.

And this is the new baby I am waiting for: A rem700 VSF LH. The babyroom is ready, I have stocked up with food (bullets), nappies (rifle case) and some optics (Leupold 8,5-25x50)

Ok, the next several pics. are of my next to last custom rifle.  A .243 Winchester that began life as a Parker Hale barreled action.  Every thing redone from top to bottom, metal and wood.  The original stock was tossed and a semi-inletted and formed was finished and glass bedded.  Shoots one quarter inch groups with hand loads (100 grain Sierra Gamekings with VV powder, Remington cases and primers.)  Pics taken while bored in the stand on a bear hunt in Hyde County NC, home of the largest black bears in the world, with the world's record coming from a couple counties over at 880 lbs.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
Just a few more pics. of the land we were hunting and my ugly mug on a deer hunt this past weekend in a stand.  Skunked again, except for about 10 deer that came out to my left at 482 yards to my left.  Only left me with about 700 and some ft-lbs. of energy at that distance with my .243 Winchester.  I declined on the shot.  The next day day at 150 yards, no deer.  In the next frame, I will show you the land.
The deer came out just to the right of the small mobile home.  You can barely see my 87 Dodge Ram pick up to the left of the mobile home.

Here is the end result of my latest project.






This was my 270 that I had a horse roll on and break my stock.  Finished this new stock just before thanksgiving.  My bro in law and one of my brothers friends shot two deer the friday after.  Shoots as good as ever (1/2 in groups at 100 yards).

It is Mauser 98 Military action.  The barrel was machined and matched to the action by Voere Firearms in 1968 and shipped to the US that year.  This was the gun my father bought me when I was twelve and started big game hunting.  Best shooting gun I have.
I did put a timney trigger and safety on it.  I wish I could have kept the tang safety, but couldn't swing it with the thumbhole stock, but I like the feel of the stock much better.

Over the last couple years I have slowly gotten into gun smithing, minus barrel work, as I do not own a lathe, which I hope to acquire in the next couple years when I have the money and space.  I have not had to, but I am quite sure I could chamber a blank barrel with a clymer hand tool.  The problem comes when trying to get the correct headspace and stamping to appear just above the stock line as it sits in the barrel.  Thats why I need the lathe.  I am trying to concentrate on custom and semi-custom rifles as well as accurizing rifles as a sideline hobby/job.  The rig I put together above probably took about, or at least close to 50 man hours and maybe 75 or more.  I did not count.  I have another Parker Hale action that is ready to go.  300 Win. Mag.  But, I am going to wait for hunting season to end, because if I don't, I will get the bug and find myself in the shop at every extra moment I have.  It becomes addicting.  But love it.  Its fun and relaxing.

Sorry for the scary picture.  Not exactly pretty.  No, we got skunked.  I think one of the smallest bears in the county came out in front of me at about 100 yards up a path and then crossed in front of the stand my nephew was in.  He came out the next day in front of my nephew's stand and stood up and heard a gun shot from a distance and then ran and stood right next to the tree the stand was on for several minutes.  All 80 to 100 lbs. of him.  The guys running dogs next to our property bayed a bear on our land and one of their teenagers shot the bear before we could get through some of the toughest woods I have seen in awhile.  Said one of his Walkers was under it.  Anyway, after the first group got to them, they shot it with a 500 S&W in the head.  Weighed a little over 200 lbs. by estimate.  We are going back in December.

Thanks.  I have any extensive camera collection to include many Nikon and Olympus SLRs and 2 Nikon DSLRs and 3 Olympus DSLRs.  But this was shot with my Casio 7 mega pixel subcompact that I take with me hunting.  It is simple to use and takes great pictures and was relatively inexpensive.

That stick is a shooter!  The first 3 shot group at 100 yds I could cover with the back of a 308 shell.  It's my favorite rifle I have ever owned, and I even had some "customs."  I've got the leupold Mk4 rings on it.  They're THICK and heavy, so I have no doubt that they'll continue to be good.

The stainless 336 wears a Nikon Monarch 2x7 and likes Hornady's Lever Evolution rounds .The Winchester 94 was a must have after they announced its demise.It isn't as consistent as the 336 , but certainly has a cool feel to it. It wears a Pentax Whitetails Unlimited with the twilight plex reticle. It really stands out against dark backgrounds. The Marlin 1895 SS is another 45/70 model. I had the joke of a recoil pad replaced with a Limbsaver. It wears a  Leupold vari-xIII 2.5-8 . I feed this one a regular diet of Buffalo Bore's 350 gr rounds at 2150 fps. Hits pretty hard at both ends( fun). Gotta get that white spacer off the pistol grip though.

Here is a few of the guns I am currently using.
HVA .358 Norma, switching betwen aimpoint, riflescope and opensights depending on range and use.
TRG 42 with the little Zeiss Mounted, a friend is trying it out at 850 meters.
He only shot 5 rounds and grouped them on 4", so he refused to shoot any more.
Alex Henry sidelock from 1913, when i use a shotgun it's often this, but sometimes my FN.
 
And last is the dog, the one on the picture is sold, but I have his older brother left.
Bastard betwen german short haired pointer and german hunting terrier.
Used for driven hunt to get the deers moving in the woods.

 Picture quality could be a bit better but it's a phone photo...anyway--My trio of 300 Weatherby MkV's.. There  is a Deluxe topped with a Pentax Whitetails Unlimited , a custom shop Sporter with a fluted barrel and Swarovski 3x10 x42 American , and last but not least a stainless in a Bell and Carlson Medalist stock topped with a Elite 4200 2-10x40.. they all shoot better than the accuracy guarantee, and really aren't that hard  ( or that easy either) on the shoulder. I also have  30-06 and 338 Wby Vanguards, and they are great shooters also, but lack the feel and 60 degree bolt lift of the MK V.

I was playing around with my small Canon camera and took these recently.  These are my current favorites.  First is a Featherweight Stainless Model 70 in 6.5x55 with a Conquest 3-9x40.  She's a real sweetheart!
 
 
The second is my other 6.5mm, a Remington Mountain LSS in 260 rem.  I pulled the 3.5-10x50 Leupold off and put it on my new Sako.  Any ideas for a scope?
 
 
The last one is the Sako 85 Hunter in 30/06.  Some of you have heard me complain about the skinny buttstock so I won't bore you guys again with details about upgrading the recoil pad.  I posted this elsewhere but here it is for those who haven't see it.  Notwithstanding my complaining I do love Sako's and I like this one.

Here's my favorite Coyote piece, a Weatherby TRR 223.  She's pimped out with a Leupold 6.5-20x56 VX-L with the 'Varmint Hunter's' reticle in Tally mounts.  And yeah, I do like this weird scope.  She does 1" groupings at 200 yards, even with my aged bespectacled eyes!  Wish I could say the same for the Sako (more like 4-5 inches at 200 yards, on my good days).
 
 
I'm anal about low rider's.  Check out the clearance on the Sako's 50mm Leupold.

EmbarrasedI plan to use this Smith & Wesson 686 for stalking hogs on the ground (no treestands) and carry it with a rifle.  It's 'only' a 357 magnum so I'm limiting my shots to less than (EDIT-15 instead of 20) yards - that's also about the maximum range I feel confident with adequate accuracy in double action rapid fire.  'Plan' is the operative word though; I'm still waiting for that shot even though I hog hunt a lot and have taken 6 this year!  But she is a good shooter with about 1000 rounds of 38 and 357 down the tube.  Still, it's a good thing I own rifles.

Second Amend, those really are professionally done, nicely composed pics!  If you aren't a professional photographer already, with your eye for composition and lighting, you really should consider it as at least a side profession!  Nice guns too!

Thank you for the complements. No, I'm not a professional photography... just amateur. Been into it for many years now.  I photoshopped the laser on the Glock 19 just for illustrative purposes.

Sent it off to Hart and they did the rebarrel.  Sent some unprimed cases with the bullet seated where I wanted and they hit it right on the money.  Neck of .313" which is just right. 
 
Not much personal contact like with a regular gunsmith but there were no complications.
