Default New ELR build

We wrapped up this one last week and managed to get to the range between thunderstorms to get DOPE on it for it’s new owner.

Stiller TAC408
.375 cheytac
Proof bull 28”
Cadex dual strike chassis
Cadex brake
Jewell bottom safety trigger
Leupold MK8 with the H59 reticle

During sight in it was pushing the cheytac 350gr pills at 2875 fps. Shot it out to 1300 yards, with excellent ballistics as expected. This ones headed to a ranch outside junction, I’m told it will be used for letting the air out of pigs beyond 1000 yards

Gotcha. There's a ****load of awesome in that gun fo sho. I've never built one on a chassis before but I want to. I like the complete adjustability and they look pretty cool and we all know that's like 90% of a build....hahaha

Gotta pay to play with the big boys. I shoot a 338 Lapua (shocking I know ) and that runs me 100$ per 20. Thats about as much as I'm willing to play haha

OP-Nice rifle! Those chassis systems are great options

We ordered 140 rounds for the customer, and sighted it in/doped it with 20 (May have sent a few of those out just for giggles at the end )

See, that just doesn't appeal to me. I like to shoot and not cringing at the $5 every time I pull the trigger. I start complaining when my pistol loads get over $5 per 50!

Don't get me wrong, I will be getting a 338 or similar fairly soon to try the ELR game.

Man that is one fine looking rig.

I have an expensive itch for a magnum hunting rig with a Proof barrel.

Haha I hear ya. I went through a few magnum rifles before I settled on my Lapua. Now it’s the only magnum I own for a couple reasons.


Sierracharlie out…

SUPER nice I am ELR guy myself coming from Northern AZ you can go shoot just about any where and as far as you can shoot .

Shot with a guy with a Anzio 20 Mil HA HA that is a spendy rig to shoot but man can it throw a chunk downrange and at crazy speeds . 40 dollars per round if I recall.
