My first rifle purchased for me by my Dad with some recent modifications.

Rem 700 Mountain Rifle blueprinted
Douglas XX air gauged SS chambered 7-08
Factory stock pillar bedded
Barreled action cerakoted graphite black
Talley lightweights and Leupold VX2 3-9X40
7.5lbs all up. Kept the factory stock for sentimental reasons being my first rifle. Work done by Tim Smith.

I think your rig looks great. I would have kept the stock as well. The Black Cerakote looks perfect as well.

Kudos!

Latest project smithed by Bob Green. Showed up this summer and was put through it's paces this deer season between me and my son in two states. 6 deer, including two great bucks for my boy.

6.5x47
Stiller Predator Action
Barltein 8 twist barrel, Rem Mag sporter contour at 22.5"
McMillan Classic BDL stock
Rem factory bottom metal
Jewell trigger
Talley rings
Nightforce 2.5-10x32 with IHR reticle

Shooting 130 Accubonds which do under 1/2" with H4350 and little effort. Perfect deer rifle I think, I really like this one.

That came out very nice Scott. Nathan does some top notch work, I'm going to have to get my hands on one of his stocks someday.

Nice rifle Skane. Scope specs?
9 ROT should spin almost anything.
Any idea on weight?
