Default 6 Dasher Back Pack Rifle

Ever since we introduced the Carbon Tomahawk last year I've had the itch to build one in a Dasher. A quick check of the MDT flush fit mags showed that it would indeed feed the little giant slayer of a cartridge. I've been slowly accumulating parts and finally had everything in hand to put it together.

Just finished it up yesterday evening and ran down to the range to give it a quick test run this morning before work. I think this one's gonna be a keeper!



Components:
MDT HNT26 Carbon Fiber Folding Chassis
Defiance AnTi Action
Proof Sendero 18" BBL
Trigger Tech Special
AB Raptor 6 with 5" reflex
Leupold MK5 3-18(hey, it was free)
Total weight - 8 lb 12 0z

The best part was after just 2 foulers and one 3 shot group to confirm POI, I made a small adjustment and sent rounds 6, 7 & 8 into this.


I'm actually looking forward to load development for once

Sweet Baby Jesus

The gun looks awesome but that's not the best part.

That group is super sweet.

little off topic Robert but have you gotten a reamer for the 6.8 Western? Seems like a sweet spot between the 6.5 PRC and the .300 PRC.

Carry on ya'lls drooling over this SWEEEEET rig

The little ugly duckling continues to impress! Just did a quick 3-round zero confirmation at 100 since I had to go to the range anyway today. Can't wait for late season doe patrol this year
