Default Ultralight 28 Nosler from Alamo Precision?

Yep! This just happened Putting the finishing touches on a long range hunting rig for a fellow TBH'r. The goal was a 28 Nosler as light as we could get it, so here is where we ended up - as close to not breaking 6lbs as you can get!

APR Custom
28 Nosler
26" Proof Research Light Sendero 1-8 Twist
Threaded 5/8x24 w/ Pierce Titanium Muzzle Brake
Pierce Titanium Action w/ Titanium Bolt
Titanium Recoil Lug
Jewell HVR Trigger
APR BDL Bottom Metal
Manners EH3 Midnight Camo
5lbs 15.9oz







Thanks for looking,
Robert

Digging the specs, minus the brake type. I bet that gun is going to be fun one to carry and do some serious work! What was the total weight goal if you don't mind me asking.

Oh yeah!

What are your thoughts on that Pierce action?

I've been considering using one.

Thanks gentlemen.

Mike - We've been waiting on parts for this build for about a year and ordered them based on what was available in the market at the time, and the expected lead times associated with them. Probably wouldn't go down that path again given the options available today.

I would shoot it in the field without a brake; however, bench time would be painful.. Beautiful work!

Lone Peak I would think would be the go to so far based on reviews on the Lone Peaks.

I have a fully PVD treated Borden Ti coming in the next batch being cut to hopefully get a little review on. I know Jim is happy with them and I don't think would put them out if he wasn't completely pleased with them. He says the fully PVD runs much better and less "sticky" than just the treated bolt and doesn't like the feel of completely NON treated Ti actions at all.

Would a 30 cal suppressor work on a 28 nosler?

Figured that would make shooting this pretty comfortable... Even if you would be carrying around a broom stick lol

I'm waiting on my 30 suppressor to get in.

I'm thinking it'll work for this rifle.

Curious on the pressure a 28 puts out.

Would assume its good to go also but wasn't 100% sure

I am fortunate to have plenty of other good hunting rifles, including a custom long range 28 by another builder, so I've been in no rush and actually have yet to shoot or even take possession of this jewel, but that will soon change...

I finally made a scope choice today and I'm having the Leupold VX-6 3-18x44 SF CDS with TMOA reticle sent to Robert & the guys at APR to mount in a set of Hawkins Precision Hybrids for me.

I debated long and hard to choose the perfect glass for this rifle and I think I'll be pleased with the 16 ounce Leupold. I'll definitely follow up with a update for y'all here.

Hey guys, I'm bringing this'n back up to share with you the results I got with the first 3 rounds of handload testing with my dream rifle...

I'll let the pics speak for themselves, other than to say that Alamo Precision Rifles builds one heckuva rifle, and I am glad that I patiently waited until I discovered them for my long planned and awaited build. Thanks to Robert and the guys at APR for doing me a awesome job!
