    Semi Custom Rem 700 25-06 full outfit

    Now Sold


    After some rationalisation of kit, I have (with regret) decided to sell my 25-06.


    The rifle was built for me by Norman Clark in 2004 on an existing 25-06 Rem 700 Sendero, I owned.

    The spec:

    Rem 700, trued and blueprinted bolt action.

    The bolt is fitted with a Badger bolt knob.

    Oversize stainless recoil lug, Krieger #3 stainless bead blasted barrel.

    Shilen trigger.

    Ken Farrell one piece base, TPS alloy rings, S&B 3-12 x 50 scope (not PM11) and Butler Creek covers.

    Rifle is in HS Precision stock (bedded in devcon at the time of the build) the stock has an ajustable butt pad fitted and has BDL mag.



    I have a supply of cases and load data that is included in sale.



    Rifle has been used regularly for stalking and has shot in the region of 50 rounds a year since it was re-barrelled in late 2004 (circa 300 rounds plus zeroing)


    This is my own rifle, that has served me very well over the years, however, I am using another calibre(s) more and more so the quarterbore is now surplus and I dont like safe queens.



    I do not want to split the outfit really, this would make a good buy for someone looking for a ready to go stalking outfit.

    The 25-06 is an excellent round, easy to load and will deal with any UK deer species.


    The rifle shoots circa 1/2 MOA easily with 100g Speer Hotcore.

    There are some cosmetic marks on the stock, but otherwise a well looked after carry all day stalking gun.


    I can arrange RFD transfer or usual face to face applies.



    Price is 1500 ono.


    Update with some photos of the Remington.







    I recently changed the scope from a Leup to the S&B which is on it, these are two 5 shot groups from the zero session.

    Hi Chaps,

    I can testify to the rifle being a tack driver. I remember turning slightly green with envy when it turned up!! Will be a cracking gun for some lucky blighter

    Cheers

    Thanks Srvet



    Ive changed the body of the ad as I had the wrong scope on the rifle, the error has been rectified.


    Rifle is fitted with a S&B 3-12x50, not a Leup as previously advertised...

    Hi Gary

    Barrel length is 26" (from rear of chamber to muzzle)

    MV with my usual deer load (100g Speer Hot Core) 3370 fps

    I also use 117g Interlocks - similar accuracy and circa 3200 fps

    i bet it would push the 75 grain varmint bullets very well redmist if you took it foxing to with those. a true all round caliber
