Wade O. of California sent us these pictures of his new 7mm-08 Rem/Age build that he used on his Blacktail deer hunt in California and this is what he had to say:  “When I got back from Australia I blueprinted the Remington 700 LA (off the original threads) and got the barrel on right before deer season. Only got 15 rounds through for break-in and the barrel was hardly fowling. Got a call to go out hunting and grabbed some Barnes TSX I had zeroed with after break-in and ended…

Much to my disbelief I managed to sink 4 out of 5 shots nearly into the same hole. I don’t think I…

Cole S. of Idaho sent us this picture of his recent Criterion Rem/Age 6.5X284 Norma build. “I just wanted to give you some feedback on my Rem/Age 6.5×284 Norma I put together last year.

F_TR Stock

Mark R. of California recently sent us some photos of his custom rifle build. Mark handmade the stock and machined the trigger guard. He had the following to say and photos to share. “Got the 308 Win. about done. Stock is African Ribbon Mahogany. Tough machining project but I think it turned out okay for a first effort. I also machined the trigger guard and powder coated parts and washers black. Got kind of carried away with the inlay on the for-end and the leather pad on the comb, but…
