The PRS rig! Short Action Customs built TL3
Shooting Alpha brass and 140g eld’s
Groups in the .3s @100 and makes easy work out to 1k so long as you call your wind. Low impact on the ipsc is my buddies shot doping his rifle before I shot, with the snow it was too sloppy in the field for our vehicles without tearing up the farmers field🤷🏼‍♂️When your walking you certainly make less trips to repaint😂

Ipsc target @ 647 yds

    My first custom.. Only been at this long range precision thing since November, bought a Bergara B14 BMP in 6.5CM, then an RPR in 338LM, decided I love this shit and had this built by the amazing folks at Altus.

    Chassis - MDT ACC with USMC Red cerakote
    Action - Impact 737r
    Barrel - Bartlein 24" M24 1-8 (6.5CM)
    Trigger - Trigger Tech Diamond pro curved
    Brake - Area 419 Sidewinder
    Bipod - MDT Ckyepod
    Optic - ZCO 527 MPCT3

    Thank you so much to Josh at Altus and Richard at CS Tactical for getting my stuff to me ahead of schedule, and making sure I'm dialed for the Frank and Mark class at Pala next week!!

    This one is also Tikka a T3X round build precision rifle, but it has a Krieger SS barrel, and it is 6.5cm.
    Sterk awesome swept bolt handle, like all my rifles.
    Midas trigger from KRG, like the Whiskey chassis.
    I really love these Whiskey chassis, once you try these, you know why these are so good.
    Audere mount, ZCO 527 scope.
    M05 cerakoted and spriral fluted.
    I have shot 0.2 MOA with that rifle, 5 shots 100-meters with handloaded 123gr Scenar.
    Atlas legs and Boscabel ti feets.
    Zaine Beaton custom made titanium muzzle brake from Australia.

    I've always had a soft spot for that rifle (hence the username). Just looks like a rifle should look.
    I like the looks of it too. But this was a 300 WM and it has a bit too rough to shoot like that. I kept at it for a few months but after having left the range with a numb shoulder and huge problems to keep it shooting the way it should I started to make changes. If it were a .308 winchester things would problably pan out differently.

    This is what it looked like after I got a Grayboe stock for it, and had the barrel threaded for a suppressor:

    It made a lot of difference, and with that set up, it shot great. I shot the Nordic Long range championships with that set up.
    Then in the following summer, I got an AICS AT chassis for it:

    And in its final and current stage, it looks like this:
    1613622913939.png

    Blueprinted and rebarelled with a Jury custom barrels, Mark 13 profile.
    MARS rail, BixNAndy 2 stage trigger.
    I acctually run a Ase Utra SL7BL suppressor on it since this past summer. The one pictured did not like a steady diet of hot 300 WM ammo going through it.

    I changed out my Tikka Tac A1 to a Cadex Defense Field chassis. I liked the Tikka chassis but kept having rust problems with it anytime I went hunting, shot in the snow or encountered literally any moisture. I'm very happy with the chassis so far, I do feel the trigger reach is a little long but not bad with the vertical ergo grip. Still has the same excellent accuracy as before. Pretty excited to take some hogs with it now that I have a new RRS Anvil 30 ball head coming to replace my no name pos head that's falling apart.

    I’ve been looking at tikka tax a1’s to add to my collection, is the tikka chassis steel or aluminum or were dealing with rust on the action and barrel?
    The chassis is mostly an aluminum body but has different steel sling points and small parts that got rust into them. The mags would also pick up surface rust. I could always get it off, but it was mildly frustrating and began to get old. I've had the rifle for 2 years up to that point with about 3800 rounds through it and was very happy otherwise. Unless you're planning on shooting in the rain & snow alot or dealing with lots of condensation I doubt rust would be an issue for you. I've never heard of any other people having problems with this, most say the mags have issues, which I did not have.

    @VargmatII What made you swap from an S&B to the NXS?

    I moved the S&B over to my 6.5x47L rifle that was my main competition rifle at the time. Got the NXS to keep the Mark 13 "period correct" as it was a project in it self. I cant do a full clone build as I live in Sweden and getting some of the parts is pretty much impossible, like the KAC suppressor. Unless I wanted to spend something like 2 months salary on one, and then there is still no smith in country that could fit it. So it is a Mark 13 mod5 (-ish), or a Mark13 mod 5 influenced rifle, if you will. Either way, it shoots great.

    Later on I sold the complete 6.5x47L set up and got myself a TRG22, which is my current go to rifle.

    are there any feeding / ejection issues?
    I've heard many stories that the TRG magazine does not work with 6.5x47 reliably.

    You missed the selling part. My 6.5x47 was sold and the TRG replaced it. My TRG is a regular 308 win.
    But I know of a guy who had his TRG rebarelled to 6.5x47 and it worked.
    TRG is/was sold from the factory in 260 rem and 6.5 creed and it seems to work.
    I have a 6XC dummie round and it Aldo feeds in my TRG, maybe ill have a barell spun up for it at some point. Who knows?

    How much does this weigh? I’m basically looking to build the same thing except an impact action and a SiCo Saker.
