Woo-hoo, just scored 5 pounds of unicorn dust, aka H1000. This gives me enough to keep my 30 nosler fed and load the soon to be built 7 saum.

I have lots of H4350 so I'll use that for break in and sighting and assume it to run about 100 fps slower.

Alright Gentlemen, I'm not saying "start your engines" yet..........but you may want to make sure there's some gas in your tank The last 2 weeks have brought a flood of parts being delivered for the group build. There are a few stragglers here and there, but the bulk of the components are here! We should be getting most of the bolts back from nitriding this week or next. That means we will start production SOON. The plan is to start delivering the 2nd week of August and have it wrapped up sometime in mid-September. There will be a couple hydro dips that wont fit that timeline, but everything else should be good to go.

Thanks,
Robert

If anyone built a shorter 6.5 PRC or 300 WSM and needs to get rid of it let me know! (Seriously)

I had to bail this year due to buying a house (Moved in in March) but am jealous of how they are starting to look.

Woo-hoo, have all the components ready, 2 kinds of powder to spare, 400 bullets and 8000 primers. Starting to feel like a prepper with a garage full of toilet paper. Name:  Screenshot_20210318-100324_Google.jpg

Im in NM shooting an ELR match, so pics might be a little tricky. But...... I’m betting a couple of y’all will be getting “the call” tomorrow based on where we were when I left. Those calls should be an every day thing for the next several weeks. I’m betting the pics will start showing up here on their own pretty quick

Go read the first page about the barrel for each build.

Maverick shows this… Barrel: APR Carbon Fiber sporter contour cut-rifled(finishes .725”at the muzzle)

The light weight shorty said it was a proof barrel


So I am guessing the other barrel is the APR Carbon fiber

I think this was covered in the planning thread, but no answer was given. It was left that they were not going to reveal the manufacturer due to supply/overwhelming a company concerns but some people could probably guess who based on carbon style.

Still waiting patiently. I’m assuming being the first order has nothing to do with being the first call received. Hopefully next week I’ll get a call.

Did anyone order one in 300 PRC, that has had a change of plans/financial situation? Feel free to pm me, as I’d be interested in buying it. Can do cash, or I have a new, unfired custom 260 Rem that can be used as trade bait.
Huntin Hard, that 6.5 PRC looks great. Can’t wait for the call to pick mine up!
