Thread: New rifle, one of those new-fangled twisty bolt thingies

    New rifle, one of those new-fangled twisty bolt thingies

    After years of Blaser ownership I finally made the move over to a more conventional rifle.
    This one was built for me by Paddy Dane of Tailor Made Hunting Rifles.
    I think he made a darn fine job of it too.
    Chambered in 30-06.
    Action is a Borden Timberline Repeater,
    Border 10 twist Cut barrel, no.5 Shilen Contour 27" (I prefer longer barrels)
    Sunny Hill Floorplate,
    Talley mounts,
    Jewell Trigger.
    14x1 invisible thread cap,
    Ase Utra SL5 mod (left off for photos)
    Swarovski 2.5-15x56 Z6i.
    McMillan HTG 100 adjustable stock

    Load worked up using Lapua brass, charged with 57.5 grains of H4350 pushing a 168 grain Nosler Ballistic Tip

    All I have to do now is go point it at a deer.........

    I thought I could see light at the end of the tunnel, but it was only some fecker with a torch bringing me more work

    very nice but that pod will be a pain in the harris when carrying it stalking

    and remember to tap the deer on the back just before you pull the trigger.

    really nice rifle and i wish you well with it,

    That would be my worst nightmare mate looks good but with a mod on will look like a lightning conductor.

    Thanks for the replies guys, just proves we all have different tastes I guess.
    Despite the apparent length of the thing it actually balances very well.
    I hope to find out just what it's like to use on deer very soon.
    No red-dot, I wouldn't stick steel that good down an oil well............

    Now thats a nice rifle and a real one at that, much better than all that slap slapping , you just need to get used to it so you can take off the training outriggers!! must be a bugger to get in the slip

    You know what it's lacking? A full 27" of wood under the barrel.

    What a Super looking rifle..even though I'm not a lover of a long
    barrel as you say G. "just proves we all have different tastes"
    whatever floats your boat...enjoy.

    Rgds, Buck.
