My new long range popgun.

Was delivered to me yesterday.

It was built by Kevin Rayhill at Stockade Gun Stocks. http://www.stockadegunstocks.com/

I had Brux Barrels send a 6mm barrel blank directly to Kevin. At the same time I sent my Coplan hard rifle case with a Savage Target action with the left load port and right eject bolt with the target accu-trigger. :)

I had Kevin turn the contour, bore the chamber for .271 no neck turn 6mm Norma BR. so I can touch the lands with 107 gr. Berger & smaller to maybe 80 gr(?). He also threaded it and cut it to 26" and crown the end. I asked him not to blueprint the action to save a few nickels. Then he assembled everything into one of his Prairie Dog Special/Tactical stocks that he put a third pillar and glass bedded it for me. I asked him not to finish and paint the stock so I could save some more nickels. (Looks like very little filling and sanding). I had him add the rail under the forearm so the bipod could be adjustable. I also had the adjustable cheek piece added along with a flush mounted swivel stud added under the butt stock so it would slide on the rear bag better.

When I talked to him before he sent it he told me that he shot 7 rounds using Varget and Berger 105 gr. Match VLDs at 100 yards. First two shots to get on the bullseye and then 5 shots for group size. This was never fired Lapua brass. He said I have a "HUMMER". The group measured .084". WOW!! :shoot::shoot::shoot:

To say the very least I am very excited.

I bought 4 cans of spray paint and will take before, during and after finished pictures of it and post them here for all to see.

"Aim small miss small", :D

PS: If I had gotten the action from him I would have saved more nickels too.
Total $1443.00 including shipping.

For the time being I have a Bushnell Elite 4200 8-32x40mm with Mil-dot reticule and will mount it with Burris Signature Zee rings with inserts to tilt the scope so I have enough elevation for 600 and 1,000 yards. I will also put a bubble level on it.

Very nice. Is this for F class? I like the adjustable cheek piece, do you have to inlet it to allow for bolt clearance?

Where is the 3rd pillar located? I know the first two are the action screws or do you have 2 piece bottom metal where the rear screw and 2 front are bedded?

I like the "grab" area on the rear of the stock for your non-firing hand and its nice and flat for a rear bag aft.

No inletting necessary on adjustable cheek for bolt. The bolt can be removed no matter how high it is.

It is for anything I can shoot in. Hopefully benchrest & long range.

Read what I wrote above carefully and most of your questions will be answered. The build was done by Kevin Rayhill.

I still don't get the third pillar but it doesn't matter. Very nice outfit. 6mm BRs are cool, very accurate and little recoil.

Here is a picture of the action where you can see the 3 action screws.

When you going to shoot it?

GT-40 GUY 06-27-2009 08:02 PM

Started working on the stock today. New pictures at the top.

Note the spongy ear plugs to plug up the holes. They work great.

Yes. My name, what action and the extra options I ordered on the stock. I ordered it unfinished so I could save some $$ by me filling, sanding and painting it myself. Pretty easy to do. :clap:

Read my first post up at top.

The LRPV is an awesome action, I have one in left port/right bolt that is very accurate. Mine is in .223, and has done sub 1/2" groups with factory ammo.

Elkbane 06-30-2009 09:45 AM

GT,
Nice stick. I have 3 Savages built upInteresting that Kevin bedded that much of the barrel. Most I've ever bedded was about the first 2" after the barrel nut on my heavy barrel Savages.

Where do you shoot?

Elkbane,

Quote: "Where do you shoot?"


He said he was going to make me a shooter so that is exactly what he did. I always free floated my rifles, but he has a lot more experience than me.

I shoot mostly at my hunting camp, but sometimes I go with a neighbor to Conyers. (when we go there I'll PM you).

Some times to River Bend Shooting Club. I won't be going soon unless I can go over the 4th. of July weekend. After that my work hours are going to change and won't get another chance for 5 more weeks.

Now that I have my new rifle I'll have to put my Ruger MKII .220 SWIFT s/s Target with Target Trigger without scope and My Winchester Coyote .243 WSSM with scope up for sale.
