Theyíll start a thread in December for ideas. Next year there will probably be a hard cutoff also because off non members making orders or people quickly creating a account and ordering.

Seems like they might swing in the other direction and do more of a bench build.
I hope itís similar to this years build though.

I am kinda hoping they will do something similar to what you see all of the PRS guys running for next years deal, if we get another shot at it.

Just got back from antelope hunting and the gun worked out well. I used the arca swiss plate for one of them on my tripod and the other one I used the bipod to shoot from.

Congrats to everyone, and thanks for posting pics! As far as next year's build........I don't have a clue yet. I loved what we did last year by just throwing around ideas on here and coming up with something as a group. We've pretty much always done hunting builds, which is fine if we continue down that path. We've never done a true dedicated long range thumper like our Range Boss, which might be fun. I'm working on several projects that will hopefully expand our options in the near future.

Thanks again for doing the build. Something like the APR Tomahawk would be a really cool option for next year or if you wanted to do something easier for you guys doing a deal on your Barreled Actions would give guys freedom to finish it how they want.

I canít wait to see what yíall come up with for next year. Iím hoping itís another hunting type build or I really like the idea of a long range thumper type build, similar to the Range boss, maybe with the apr 2 action and a ag composite stock to bring the cost down some.

My 10 year old already stole my build from this year lol. He is shooting cloverleafs at 100 and inch and a half groups at 200 with it. Forgot to take pictures at the range Sunday though. Thanks again Robert.

It would be great to see a hunting build based strictly for suppressor use. I believe it would be very popular as suppressor use is growing by leaps and bounds.��

Finally mounted a scope last night, just going to roll with Razor LH 2-10 at least for deer season, but after shooting it today I may just leave it. This rifle is unbelievable, Iíll let the pics speak for themselves, but a 0.33Ē group with factory soft points...

Got my free cds dial for my vx5 on my APR TBH 6 creed this week. Was testing it out yesterday. 2 shots at with factory Hornady match 108 ELDM.

These guns are so freaking awesome.

Not part of the group build but I'll add to as I watched this build closely.

Mine is a 30 Nosler built on a defiance tenacity with Roberts APR designed stock from AG and a Muller barrel. Minimum load work and it's running in the .3s at 300 yards with 215s.

I took this cow with our own J-J Matt 2 weeks ago then walking to the stand I took this nice 8 at 265 yards from a kneeling position this past Friday.

Headed to Lampasas in two weeks for some Axis culling.

I've owned a few from APR and they continue to surpass expectations.Name:  20191108_165553.jpg

Well our 2019 big game season is coming to an end. Its been a pretty successful year and I owe a good chunk of it to APR. The rifles my dad and I had built are sure awesome and have far surpassed our expectations. My dad ate his deer tag as he just couldnt find a buck worth taking. Our mule deer population is struggling enough so we do pass on some. I punched my deer tag on a smaller 3x4 but am super grateful to have him in the freezer. I shot him with my 6.5prc shooting factory 143eldx. Just over 300yds 1 shot and didn't take a step. My dads 6.5prc shoots lights out as well.

Elk season my dad had an any bull tag in the area we like to hunt. We had our eyes on some big old boys but when this youngish 7x7 came in and bedded down my dad couldnt pass him up. He shot him with his 300wm shooting 215 bergers at 430 yards. Never stood a chance...

My other half and I both had spike elk tags for the same area. I shot mine at 560 yards with my 300wm shooting 215 bergers as well. Had 15-20mph cross winds which made the call tuff but dropped him in his tracks with 1 shot. She shot hers with my dad's 300wm at 420 and same result. 1 shot bang flop. 4 animals in 4 shots and not one took a step after impact. I couldnt be happier! I'm a super happy customer and hope to own more of their rifles.

The bad.... I'm a terrible picture taker!! Not just bad at it but I get to focused on the job at hand and forget to take them period at times. I told myself I would get good staged ones this year with the rifles in them but I definitely choked... Here's a couple but I know they suck.. Next year I will be better! On to shooting steel and predators for the winter!

I was finally able to draw first blood with my APR from this yearís build. 7mm-08 shooting Fusion 140gr. I was also able to test out the Leupold CDS system. I ranged the smaller hog at 314 yards, dialed the CDS to 300, held the crosshairs dead on and squeezed off the shot. It took 2 steps and fell over.

Great job!! So far Iíve taken 3 axis and 3 whitetail with my build. All were DRT or only took a couple of steps. Never took the range finder out but Iíd say my farthest was about 220-225.

Can’t believe I missed this thread. A buddy told me to look in APR as I wanted a custom 6.5 prc. I used the search forum as this place has every topic you could possibly as for to learn more about them. I guess I’ll have to get a rifle or two from them soon. I’ve seen two in there ready to buy that has my interest. Or wait to see this years builds.
