Thread: 7mm-08 James Clarke Special

    7mm-08 James Clarke Special

    Picked up my second rifle from Jager SA to match the first one that he made for me. I wanted 2 fairly similar rifles to make an easy transition between the 2 for foxing, deer, long distance rabbits and target shooting. The first rifle (223 Rem) was spot on, shooting around a 0.7 inch grouping from a new barrel with factory ammo and the next one is no different, again producing a 0.7 inch grouping.

    James did tell me it was going to be a heavy one and it sure is, hefty barrel!

    Again a bargain price for spot on workmanship (Gun plumbing) and awesome coating. Thanks again James!

    I know how you feel Alan, I was the same but it will be worth it I am sure!

    I also just realised that the MOA above is wrong, I never actually took the size of the bullet away from the measurement, oops. So in actual factor they would both be under 0.5 MOA.

    The attached image is the start of some load testing which I am guessing would be just over 0.3 MOA? (Range is 100 yards)

    Very nice work again from James. Out of interest, do you have a preference out of the AI stocks?

    I haven't really had a good amount of use out of them yet but I am leaning towards the pistol grip version, I find it a little bit more comfortable and easier on a bag. I am considering put some viper skins on the thumbhole stock to make it a pistol grip instead.
