    Ukgunworks 280 Ackley

    What with reading URXs post about the 280 ackley i thought i would post about mine.
    It was built by UKgunworks and i picked it up earlier this year , the specs are ...
    Sako 75 long action
    Border cut 26 inch 1 in 8.5 twist barrel in 280 Ackley
    Mcmillan Sako varmint stock
    Ukgunworks recoil lug and screws..

    Early days but this how she shot testing at 725yds.. ( 5 shot group)

    Pictures of the gong after 5 shot group.


    And i christened it recently out stalking with a good friend - 205yds off the quad sticks - a fantastic evening out!!
    Really looking forward to more testing and hunting with this rifle

    Lovely rifle.

    What is the general consensus on the work that ukgunworks do?

    ​Certainly their rifles look beautiful, and if matched by accuracy and reliability then I will make some serious enquiries.

    My personal opinion is go for it
    I have had 2 rifles built by Chris now , i also have a Tikka T3 custom in 6.5-55 Improved which shoots really well too!!
    I have shot quite a few other rifles that he has built too , all built to a high standard and shoot well.
    Just to bear in mind that i use these rifles for not only stalking , i use them for long range target shooting and pest control..
    If you lived closer i would say come for a shoot and try for yourself
    PM me if you like if you want to know more!!
    All the best.
