My 700 ADL Varmint in 308 Winchester, lives in an XLR Element chassis and wears a Viper 6.5-20x50.


My newest, the "Creedmoor Killer" Winchester M70, chambered in 6.5WSM, Kreiger 1-8 twist, in an HS Precision takeoff stock which I bedded. It now wears a Burris XTR II 5-25X50. 140 Berger VLDH at a shade over 3200fps. 6.0 mils to 1000 yards.

There are others, but I don't have pics right now.

In the stand today with a CZ 550 in 9.3x62mm, was the full stock version till I bedded it into a mcmillan HTG stock. 20" barrels and wears a fixed 6x Swarovski scope.
I think it's about the perfect, do everything caliber.

My .280 built off of a Remington 700 BDL action. The bolt was lapped and faced true and spiral fluted. The barrel is a 26" match grade stainless steel Lilja #5 and I had it straight fluted. I had it teflon matte finished in black since my action was already black. Stock is a McMillan Master's in green. Jewell trigger set at 2 lbs. It has a Swarovski 6x30 Z6 BRH reticle on Talley rings/bases. Rifle was built by Rifles Inc. in South Texas. It was sighted in with a zero at 200 yrds with Federal 140 grain Barnes TSX. I have mainly used this rifle on Mule Deer hunts.

Shoots great. I'm easily under a half inch with san****s and no rear bag. I've been meaning to grab a bald eagle rest and good rear bag to really stack them.

Barrel isn't fluted. Bolt is his diamond cut.

Certainly not a pro but do try to take tasteful pictures of my firearms, sorry no feet, dirty clothes on the floor or cluttered work benches will be seen in my pics. I do believe that lighting is a key factor.

Taking outdoor pictures in bright daylight will result in harsh shadows. Try taking pics on overcast day or when the sun is behind a cloud.

This pic of my 223AI was taken when there was no direct sunlight. My pool was used as the background, I used a slow shutter speed to give the water droplets from the pool sprinklers a different look. (they are the streaks you see)



Lighting can be controlled indoors also.

Here is a pic of my CZ in 204 Ruger taken on a bench in my shop. Notice the soft shadows.

Beautiful pics, I take all my pictures with my iPhone se. I've gotten good at taking pictures of the fish I caught over the summer, now I'm working on getting better pictures of my rifles. Takes practice to get good at this and I'm certainly moving forward.

Thanks! I've got a few "tacti-cool" bolt guns but I love the older classic lines for deer hunting. I've also got another Ruger RSI in 243. Sharp little rifles.
