300 PRC Field competition chassis, 26” rock creek barrel 7twist, Big Horn TL3 action built by Patriot Valley arms. Haven’t even had a chance to shoot it yet. But I will have some of Josh’s 241 solids loaded for me.

Build turned out great. That was the other color that I was considering for my chassis. Which Spuhr mount did you end up going with?

Anyone own a Kraken and have a gunsmith make barrels for it?
I may have a good deal on one.
I’m wonder is there’s any smiths out there that have the tenon information to chamber the barrels and just use the rifle like a regular shouldered barrel without needing Cadex kraken action wrench.

what I’m not wanting to do is buy a $1300.00 barrel from cadex when clearly a smith could easily chamber the barrel like any other action out there.
I also wonder if the 30/300/33 action wrench would work in the Kraken with or without any modification. I think it would be similar since the actions are the same size. 1.55”. I’m assuming the raceways are similar as well.

    We have a rapidly growing network of dealers in the US that you can choose from. The best way to find them is at the link below. If you have a local dealer interested in getting set up as a dealer have them email me at customerservice@cadexinc.com. As for lead times on chassis you are looking at 4-6 weeks on the majority of products.

    cheers,

    The Tenon drawing for the Kraken has not been released for use by general gun smiths as the time, research and testing that went into this project was a huge investment and we do not want it copied. None of the action wrenches we offer will work in the Kraken other then the Kraken wrench with a factory barrel.

    As for the price lets take into account that
    1. The barrel comes fluted, cerakoted, threaded for a brake and head spaced perfectly to your action.
    2. We are using premium Bartlien barrels
    3. You do not have to pay to ship your action to a gun smith and then back.
    4. You can schedule your new barrel to be delivered, and if you are in a pinch we usually have barrels ready to go that could be to you with in a week.

    You should also take a look at the other multi cal guns on the market. We are actually cheaper then most of them.

    Let us know if you have any other questions.

    Cheers,
    Ryan

    Can you do the same with your regular non MC actions? Prefits can be had for close to $800 for most other actions. I think most of us can do without the additional cost of fluting.

    What kind of accuracy have you been getting with the 50? Between BMG, Cheytac, and Lapua there are all kinds of options.
    The 50bmg is a totally different beast to shoot accurately and consistently. Call me a wimp of whatever you want, but managing recoil on the 50bmg consistently is an exercise onto itself. I have gotten 3-5 shot groups of about 2 inches or less at 300 yards, but it requires me to really focus and do my job. Having inconsistent shoulder pressure, bipod pre-load, flinching(however slightly), throws shots off.

    I am way more consistent with my MPA 6.5 PRC and 300WM - consistently less than 1.5 inches over 5 shot groups at 300 yards in any condition. The Cadex Tremor 50bmg is such a hoot and challenge to shoot though, I really love it.

    Cadex Tremor .50! I'm thinking of getting one since I can't find a Bushmaster BA50/Remington R2MI, AI AX 50, and McMillan TAC-50. Wanting to know about accuracy, repeatability, and reliability. Don't see many reviews or videos about them. Also thread pitches as I have both AAC Cyclops and AWC Turbodyne so suppression is required.

    Anyone with the Stiller Tac408 1.45” action and a Dual Strike want to share their opinion on the combo?

    I’ve never used a Stiller action but they seem reasonably priced

    I only wanted the Kraken because of the thicker tenon compared to the CDX33 action. The Kraken could easily be used as a single shot cheytac action as well if you guys would make a bolt face for it. It’s almost the perfect do it all action but it’s being restricted as per what you mentioned.

    I’ve since decided to go a different direction anyways.

    One of these days I'll have to put some effort into taking better pics. This thing deserves much better than what I'm doing.

    My 3 pieces of Cadex awesomeness.
    Closest is my bergara in the grey lite comp

    middle in tan a Tikka CTR in 223

    back a full on Cadex R7 in 6cm!! It is used in PRS with the lite comp chassis that my Bergara B14r is in
    Can you tell me the barrel length on the Bergara? That's a light competition chassis right?

    Anyone have some vertical grip ideas?
    MDT is back ordered for awhile. I have their MDT grip for the ACC chassis but not sure how to make that work since it’s a two piece design.

    The mdt sits way too low when I tried it, I ended up going with the XLR slanted but the vertical is a solid idea.

    Same it was too low as well, I tried the MPA and MDT finally tried a old AR15 grip I had. It was a major improvement in comfort and trigger press. So I tried the XLR and it been perfect. I noticed I liked a more angled grip than the vertical.

    I hate angled grips. Love my MDT ACC grip which is why I was hoping to get something similar to that on my other two Cadex rifles.

    I bet my buddy could chop the MPA grip
