Do you have any updates on velocity. I just ordered a 18 inch benchmark carbon but thinking about changing to 22. Any regrets on the 18. What powder you using
I’m shooting 169 hammers at 2900 pretty easily. Got em up to 3k but after a couple firings gave me clickers so backed down. 180 hybrids I haven’t really pushed but was somewhat close to a load at 2740. No regrets on length. I’ve got a 7 Saum in 22” that just barely edges it out. If I was to start over I probably woulda done 20” to match my Saum or slightly beat it. That being said I’m not pushing that Saum very hard at all with 58 grains of rl23 at 2750fps and 180 hybrids

Also using h1000 in the 7 prc. Ran 26 for the higher end velocities stated but just too many temp inconsistencies with it. H1000 is giving much better accuracy in this case for me too

Sounds pretty good to me, I was back and forth between 18" and 20" for my 7 PRC Tikka Carbon Six prefit, so I finally just ordered 19". Just picked up some Staball HD to try once my barrel comes in.
 
Huge fan. I have 6 raptors on various calibers and they really shine on the magnums in both sound reduction and recoil reduction.
Try any large bore? I’ve got a 375 Ruger. I have a Rex Silentium for it but wondered about the AB. It’s a 20” barrel and they recommend 22” for that size/caliber. I’m intrigued by their reflex chamber.

Biggest I have a .338 and on a 26” lapua, it’s hearing safe indoors.
 
Does anyone have a measurement on a McMillan Gamewarden forearm length for a Remington 700? I trying to see if I can fit the Christensen Arms 6.5 MPP barreled action in one.

Had this one done up about eight years ago and she still shoots everything. But she is a tank, would love to shave some weight but she shoots way too well.

looks amazing. Is that DIY? If so, how'd you learn to paint like that?
Thanks F35 !

It's diy. I just sprayed Krylon on aluminum foil and dip a small piece of sponge in it to apply. It's pretty much idiot proof. Gives a bit of texture which is nice. In my experience Krylon is surprisingly tough when thick enough. And I can reapply if it gets scratched. It's cheap and and gets the job done.

Great idea! Looks professionally done!
 
Beautiful, I have an Anthem S as well. Most impressive 30 cal can I've shot to date.
Yes sir, I love it. Have only tried it on the 6.5 prc so far but sounds great. I have the 6.5 endcap for it as well to try out. Also, have the Torch at my dealer currently waiting on me to do paperwork. It will be dedicated to one of my 6 arc's.
 
The glass is great. I like it as a lightweight hunting scope that is short, with low profile tactical turrets. It’s a FFP FMA-2 recticle. The floating center dot is perfect for my eyes, like it much better than cross hairs. Also along with the tapered post really helps your eye find the center quickly in up close rushe shots at 3x.
I now have my eye on a 1.5-15x42

The scope is mounted pretty far back in that pic because I had the barreled action in a stock with a 2” longer lop that didn’t fit me

Only way to get one is a TS customs build or impact precision gets some from him for impact actions but few and far between

Stockys makes something like this in carbon for Tikkas. Very low price too but I haven't ordered one. They are backordered. I've heard with them it can take a while...
I've got one of the Stockys vertical grip carbon stocks on order for my Tikka, only a few weeks into the wait, hopefully it doesn't take too long.

I backordered mine from stockys. Only took about 2 weeks to get but maybe I got lucky

Updated my 16” tikka 223ai from the bravo chassis to a XLR envy pro. Now it matches my match rifle and the folder is going to be great for passing the rifle around the truck while out shooting prarie dogs.

My 26” 300 Norma with an MPA 4 port brake is loud enough to wake the dead. How is that 18” one to shoot?
