Default Alamo Precision Rifle Completed!

Picked up my rifle the other day and looking forward to shooting it this weekend and couldn’t be more impressed. Planning to get my butt whooped in a few 1 mile shoots over at CCC when I get a load worked up but it’ll be fun. Will update how the ladder test with the 245gr Berger’s go.

TL3 action
28” 1-8 Bartlein 300PRC
A3 adjustable McMillan stock
Athlon Cronus scope

I really need two rifle but cant pony up $10,000 for both plus optics

I'm going on a Nilgai hunt need a .30 thumper

I shoot casual 500 yard steel plate matches with a bunch of great shooters, thus I'm looking at a VERY accurate 6mm

Scott sweet talked me into selling that scope for cheap. Glass is incredible.

Build you a long action custom with a switch lug and have them spin you up to barrels and bolts. Best of both worlds on one rifle. Just a quick swap and ready to go.

I have 3, 300 PRC’s and the recoil is nothing. My lightest one is 8lbs with a LB brake and its very little.

Very pretty rifle OP. APR does awesome work.

With the weight and brake i have on it i can watch impacts most the time at 1000 yards. Even at 600 or so i watch the splashes on target
