    Congratulations to Rory and Daniel, fantastic result, we are proud of you. We are thrilled to have had a part in the rifle build. edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    I also have a 3-20 US on a different rifle. Lovely scope. The 3-27x56 PMII with the Spuhr mount weighs 1.4kg, with the 30MOA I get around 260 cm clicks upward. The rifle is 3040 grams, moderator ~310grams Total 4.75kg or 10.45lb Maybe 200 grams less with the 3-20 and another 150grams with lighter mounts. edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    Lee, what rifle/barrel was that? Treedave, worst case if you have a similar barrel to mine with 24mm on the outside and a Hausken mod with ~24mm you could turn it out by 0.3-0.4mm. I did mine on one of those mickey mouse table lathes. Just have to heat up the section where the threaded part is in and unscrew the front baffle section off. That then fits into a small lathe. I used to run a 300wm through that mod, now I will only use the CM and 308. edi

    Possibly. John Lambert Firearms is the Irish Importer. https://www.facebook.com/pages/category/Outdoor---Sporting-Goods-Company/John-Lambert-Firearms-LTD-209426942868407/ edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    Hausken also have front mounted mods or? The carbon barrels are getting quite popular in Ireland and therefore our importer is getting the JD224 version with the larger barrel opening. Lee the 143 Eld are on my list. At the moment I only have the 136 Sako. Did a small bit of lapping on the barrel and shot her again today. Lightened the trigger a bit too. Zero check had two shots overlapping (3 clicks high). Then dropped a fox across the valley. First kill for this rifle. Fox lying at ~ 2 mil right 1.5mil above crosshair. edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    Treedave, Hausken seem to have a version that fits over a 24mm barrel now. I am waiting delivery of one. The one on the rifle is Hausken also, I took it apart and bored out the back by 0.3-0.4mm on a lathe. Hole was initially 24mm and barrel also but would not go over. Ronin yes the are many lighter options, I am a bit careful with scopes on test or loan. Spuhr are bullet proof and don't seem to leave marks behind on the scope tube. I must get a set of their new hunting range of one piece mounts they are much lighter. What I like on the Spuhr rail, Spuhr mounts noticed now with the last few rifles is that the scope was out only by a few clicks from it's centre setting when zeroing. With this rifle it was only 6 clicks. edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    Trucraft, I'll test this on crows and maybe a fox but would prefer ELD X for deer if they work well. Thanks Ronin, that is the idea. Might put the lighter 3-20x50 Ultra short on if it is used purely for stalking. edi

    Ultra light Tactical 6.5CM

    Finally got to zero my new Ultra light 6.5 CM . We managed to get a 20" 6.5 Hardy carbon barrel which only weighs 1.2kg, and old Remmy action and my son made me an experimental ultra light E-Tac4 stock that only weighs 820 grams. ~29Oz. Schmidt sent us a 3-27x56 with Tremor3 and the new Spuhr 20Moa Rail as well as Spuhr 10MOA one piece mount, Triggertech trigger. That mount is a bit high for this rifle but I just had it. Moderator needed a bit of tweaking on the lathe to go over the 24mm Hardy barrel. The bare rifle weighs just under 6.7lbs, scope with mount is quite heavy but what a brilliant optic. The only ammo I had for zero and initial chrono was the Sako TRG 136gr Scenar. I chronoed all 15 shots. First few shots had 75fps ES which seems to be tightening up to 30's in the last 7 rounds. I will repeat again once the barrel is worn in a bit. Shooting off the Land Rover hood close to the sea is not the best but the last three shots in my 5 shot group tightened up nicely. So far very happy with the rifle as well as the 6.5CM which is running average 2730fps with the 136gr from a 20" barrel, around 1100m supersonic. edi

    Any threads here about refinishing stocks?

    Sand down with 120, end with 240. Stippling can be done with bedding compound by hand dabbing. Then re-spray with Duracoat tactical paint which is very flat and has a bit more grip to it. HS can be heat sensitive we had one crack at only 50 C. Won't touch them again. edi

    Just about the sexiest tactical mounts there is !

    I spoke to Hakan at the IWA, he mentioned they made a series of pica rails for the usual T3/Rem 700 rifles. I received a Spuhr 20Moa rail for my remmy this week. They have small features to ensure repeatability when taking a scope on and off. I also like the two piece Spuhr mounts which allows for a lower scope mount. edi
  13. Thanks for posting. Nice to see who shoots what rifles. Good mixture of rifles you had at the starting line. edi
