It wasn't me, but if my wife likes mine I may be ordering her one not to different from that. She's never been a rifle shooter, but I'm hoping she likes shooting this one and decides to take an animal or 2 while we're in Africa next June.

Tell him exactly that. You have a Curtis axiom action chambered in 6.5cm. I also included that the action has a 700 footprint but not sure if that was needed or not.

He will also want to know what kind of cleaning rod you use.

This as well. Needs to know the rod you use so the rod guide will be sized appropriately.

Just got around to putting my AAC breakout and Millett LRS scope on. Not the best scope in the world, but I had it sitting in the closet and figured it was better than nothing. Canít wait to get to the range to see how it shoots!!

If anyone is having buyers remorse, seriously doubt that,or maybe some things have changed since ordering and would consider selling, let me know what you got coming. I'm really kicking myself for not getting on this. Kinda in the mood for 7RM but might be open to another caliber.

We received 10 short action bodies late last week. Which would be great if they had bolts The bolts were coming from another location and did not arrive with them. Hopefully they tried to deliver today(we're closed) and will show up in the morning. These should cover all of the remaining 7-08 and 6.5 CM builds. This was a failed attempt to "expedite" the short actions that were supposed to deliver later this week.......and the week before, and the week before....... We really appreciate everyone's patience and hope everyone knows we are doing everything possible on our end to get these things delivered. This has certainly been a learning experience for us, and I don't think we will likely do another group buy deal that is in anyway dependent on outside production schedules.

So does that mean asking about another group build for those of us too hard headed to get in on this one would be bad timing?

Nope. It means that whatever it ends up being in the future will either be in our inventory already, or be available from vendors with a solid history of meeting their delivery deadlines. I've got some ideas floating around for the next one

The last word was that the short mags will be with the the remaining short actions coming this week. I simply can't get a straight answer on the standard longs.

Would the next group buy possibly be using y'alls new actions? Kicking myself for not getting in on this one to have a 22 Creedmoor built.

Side note, I know a friend of mine had a 22 Creemoor built. Besides his were there many others?

At the range today. Will post results up when Iím done. First 5 down the tube and cleaned between each one. Ready to get some groups now. I have Hornady Black 140, Hornady 140 ELSM, Hornady 143 ELDX, and Federal 130 Berger Match. Hoping it likes one of these factory options before I start reloading for it.

I have 150 Sierra Matchkings, 143 ELDX to load, and some 124 Hammer Hunters on order to try. Now I just need to break down and buy a Chrono.

Checkout the magnetospeed. Great price and easy to use. Anyone know if there is any 6.5 factory ammo using the SMK 150?

I've got an APR 6.5 creed built on a Rem 700 I'd sell.....shoots excellent with factory ammo and Dallas Reloads 143 gr ELD-X. I just don't have the time to dedicate to learning to shoot long range.

So here is the latest news from Chase himself.....

"Update is I am trying to have bolts there by end of week. I will have the 6 saum bolts and actions there Tuesday (that’s a fact) and worst case the other 308 bolts Tuesday (but I am trying sooner obviously)"

I know we have had the same update for quite a while now, so I can only hope that this one is accurate. That said, we have moved forward on our end to try to expedite as much as possible. The numbers on the actions have been consistent enough for us to feel comfortable pre-chambering barrels for them, so that is what we began doing last week with all of the short actions. We can't really go any farther in the process in case we need to make any minor adjustments to headspace later, but it should be a huge time saver once we actually get the actions in hand. Still no word on the standard long actions at this point. Again, sorry for the delays but please know we are doing everything in our power to get these builds delivered.

Thanks,
Robert

Thank you again for the update. I am sure your tired of having to post the same updates with hopes that the other end follows through. Lets hope they are correct this time. Looking forward to getting back to the range when the new rifle is ready.

Having worked in the industry and been on both sides of the fence: builder and customer (buyer); I can relate to everyone's feelings/emotions. Waiting for a new custom rifle sucks, and will test your patience. In the end it's worth the wait. Communication is the key and APR is definitely keeping everyone abreast of the situation, especially things beyond their control.

I'm in a similar boat as my newest custom varmint/coyote rifle was placed on temporary "hold". GS took several weeks off since he moved into a brand new building. In the interim I've ordered dies, brass, bullets, and powder for my new song dog slayer. I'll post a sperate thread when I take receipt and get some range time in.

The Federal 130 Berger match shot 1.271, which was the worst group of the day by a half inch. I now have some 143's loaded with 39-42.5 grains of H4350, 5 rounds each at .5 increments and 2.81 COAL, can't wait to get back to the range and try them out. I'm also going to load up some sierra 150SMK's with the same 39-42.5 grains of H4350 to see if I can find a good node, and I will run it all through my new magnetospeed.

The shot out of the group was the first shot after cleaning the rifle, the next 5 were shot as a group. All shots were off a bipod and rear bag.







I also got my PIG stockpack in with my Right 2 Bear Arms patches

That is the logical choice for sure CB But......... I don't have the long action versions of those yet either, Lol. And they are CM instead of stainless which wouldn't be apples to apples to some folks. While they are a giant leap over a Remington, they are a small step down from the actions we offered for this TBH deal. Lone Peak is willing to hook us up with some long action standard bolt face Razors that actually ARE AVAILABLE and at a good price to help us get these delivered. I feel a little better about that option as it is a top-tier action in every regard. Folks are still free to wait on the Curtis if they choose to for sure. But with multiple missed deadlines starting in Feb. and eventually turning into no deadlines at all , we wanted to at least offer a comparable alternative to get these delivered in time to hunt this season.

Got some new bullets in today. Canít wait to see how these 124 Hammer Hunters perform on game and at the range. Hoping to take this new rifle on a Mule Deer hunt in Colorado in November and to Africa in June, so I need to find a bullet combination thatís accurate and lethal. Will hopefully do some testing on hogs in September.



From left to right 124 Hammer Hunter, 143 ELDX, 150 SMK, and a .308 210 Berger

After talking with Robert, I'm going with the Lone Peak action.

Is the Lone Peak option only for those waiting on a Long Action or do we get the option if we are still waiting on a Short Action?
