    Lynn,

    Neat Stuff!!

    What is the bark like on the BMG?? How much does that gal weigh?? Do any of the 50's keep up in the accuracy dept. w/ the 6.5, .30 & .338 br made pills?? I know little about the long range br stuff but was curious if the 50 was playing.

    I have never been into the boomers....even for hunting but our deer are small. My biggest kicker is a 7mm Lazzeroni built on a sako trg action. Pretty heavy and only shooting those 120gr lazer heads but still snaps at you.

    Dad & I use her strictly for long range doe shooting. I'm guessing barrel life to be +/-800 rounds before accuracy will start to suffer.

    I have barrels ranging from 28-36 inches in length in 6BR,6.5-06AI,6mm-06,284AI,7STW,308 Baer,300 Ackley and some wildcats.

    The barrel block is bedded with J-B Weld for perfect alignment and to keep the 44 pounds of aluminum from being a giant heat sink.The entire action floats a does most of the barrel.It started out as a billet and was machined by Gary Alvey out of Junction City,Colorado.

    If your into playing with a bunch of different chamberings this is the perfect test bed.It is the 1,000 yard equivalent of a railgun as it weighs 65 pounds and in testing returns to battery very well.It has a 3 piece rest with a removable center section but for testing you can leave it as 1 piece. It has front and rear windage controls as well.In the long run its actually cheaper than a bunch of laminated or fiberglass stocks and every other year I get it repolished.At our local public range its a huge public relations tool and lots of people have shot it.

    Lynn,

    Sorry about the number. I was in a hurry and messed up. I sent you an email with the correct area code.

    Thanks again for your willingness to help.
