Match Rifle for sale (possibly)

Recommended Posts

Looking to see if there's any interest out there. This is a rifle I built 2 years ago for shooting 600yd at Cumberland Rifleman. The rifle is built on a Remington 700 receiver. It has a 26" stainless steel Bartlein medium Palma taper barrel 1-8 twist chambered in .260 Remington. The chassis is an Eliseo R5 made by Competition Machine that is fully cerakoted and fully adjustable. The rear sight is made by Phoenix Precision with an adjustable aperture and the front is "The Right Sight" made by Scott Riles at Riles Machine, it has a 30mm tube with 1x magnification with an adjustable iris and optional sunshade. I also have 2 magazines made by Accuracy International, one is a 5rd and one is a SLED. The trigger is a 2 stage made by CG Extreme and is fully adjustable. Also have a Forster Ultra Micrometer seating die with a Redding resizing die. I have 179 rds loaded for this rifle by me ready to go and 90 rds empty brass half of which is brand new plus 56 Sierra 142gr HPBT Match King bullets ready to be loaded. This rifle has exactly 147 rds down the barrel and it is an absolute tack driver at 600 yds in the current setup. For someone looking to get into long range precision shooting this would be a great package as it's ready to go. This chassis can be setup for F Class shooting also. I don't have to sell this but I just don't have the time for match shooting right now. I have almost $3500 in everything you see in the pictures, looking to get somewhere in the neighborhood of $2900 for it all. Make me an offer, worst I can say is no. Any questions feel free to ask.

Just curious - I'm not a long range shooter by any stretch of the imagination, I'm lucky to be able to see the distance between the front and rear sights -  but doesn't the front sight, clamped directly to the barrel, play havoc with barrel harmonics?

Adios,

Pizza Bob

Shot in the dark here, but...

Barrel harmonics are probably more likely interrupted when a moving object (barrel under recoil) meets an immovable object (the stock) moreso than the sight being out on the end.  

Actually, if you look into "tuners" they are weights that are adjustable and hang off the muzzle.  The sight will change harmonics, for sure.  But since it's attached to the barrel and essentially just floating there, that is easily accommodated by load tuning.  The barrel contacting the stock under recoil is not as easily accommodated as it's not always moving the same way.

Just a thought from a guy that doesn't know much.  But I did drive past a Holiday Inn at some point in the last month.
