Thread: something different

    something different

    Now, as per title , as far as i am aware there are not many of these in the uk , when it was proofed it was the first to be done .

    A custom rifle in 375 Chey tac . built on a SPF Tac 408 single shot action, lawton fluted braked barrel at 32'' long , this is one of the original lawton barrels. jewell trigger , A5 stock , rail . available with new cases heads and dies . Just shot in for sale on for a customer.

    This was shooting 350 grain match kings at 3250 during barrel brake in. Just the job for those long range deer !

    Very nice! A fair bit of weight there?

    very pleasing!, but probably more suited to tallies than munties.

    I had the pleasure of seening this and the other rifles TWG1 has for sale, and boy are they nice,

    the 308 makes me cry what a rifle, and this thing is just the mutts.

    TWG1 is a top bloke to deal with and will go out of his way to help the best he can (even came to my house to sort out my mistakes)

    outstanding rifle I don't know a lot about this caliber (I generally don't know much) just a couple of questions
    1/ is the 3250 fps the normal running velocity for this caliber
    2/ how much powder does it burn per shot
    3/ what is its effective range & what range is the bullet still super sonic
    4/ barrel life

    my longer term plan is a long range rig at the moment i,m hitting smallish things out to the 650 yd mark and getting slowly better, my caliber (.243) I know will hold me below the 1000 yd mark (for consistent shooting)

    so give me a yr or so and i my be chasing you up ...regards....neil
