Borden Mountaineer PSE E Lite Hardy Carbon Barrel

Recommended Posts

Just completed this which is  Borden Mountaineer in 6.5 Creedmoor, mated to a Hardy 8 twist barrel

 Trigger tech trigger

PSE composites E Lite stock (which was a special one off for the customer) and only usually available in T3 inlet

Bottom metal is Tier One with American Rifle Company Mag and Freyer Devic sound mod

Up top is Schmidt Bender 4-16 Polar mounted on Talley rings and bases

Stock has added flush cups and attachment for Spartan bipod

Also Devcon bedded action inlet area 

 

Package weighs just a shade over 7 lb

 

The stock is perfect for stalking and carry all day use, Edi you need to offer this inlet as standard!

Stunning rifle; would be my choice of components too. What’s the balance like and how long was the barrel.

Very nice Andy, well done.

 we were lucky with the barrel channel.... 

Yes I must start on a mould for the E-Lite Rem 700  converting stocks is a pain.

Left port because customer specified action that way

 

Background of images - yes I could have chosen a better shade ,,,,,,I prefer the faux wolf fur I have 

Balance point is towards the front of the magazine - nigh on perfect 

Barrel is 22” (I recall)

 

The stock is perfect for a lightweight build for a carry all day stalking rifle

It would be a perfect base for Tikka T3 or Rem 700 or clone action for people who wanted lightweight, durable and portable rifle

What profile is the barrel vs what weight. 

 

I.e. is it a varmint profile for a sporter weight ?

ps I love the mr blobby background.

Edi - thanks to you and Peter for sorting this, especially with my PITA time frame.

Got to say it handles better than it looks. I’ve managed some initial load development today, which looks good. Longer range data testing to follow.

The mod was not as quiet as expected. But after a few rounds it got quiet enough and apart from the mirage, you don’t notice it’s on.

Dave

we got a larger version of the F&D moderator for Bens 6.5 x47 that is very effective and light too. Assuming thread compatibility (18x1) you are welcome to try that one to see if it better suits your needs. It was remarked on yesterday at Grayrigg as being noticeably quiet

cheers

Srvet,

I would love to mix n match but my barrel is too fat for most mods, hence having to go for an end can.Thanks for the offer though.

If noise turns into an issue I’d probably trial the ase utra sl7i or hausken sk156.

Undercover fatty perhaps

Think the barrel is just under an inch diameter at the muzzle - not many over barrel (reflex) moderators will accommodate this  and there was an added issue that Dave wanted Ti or similar light weight material which isn’t freely available either

I think I have the 20" version of that barrel. She has 24mm at the muzzle if I remember right. We had talked about this before... there is a Hausken JD224 with extra big hole in the back. I am using one on my rifle.

We have Edi

 

the Hausken in question isn’t available in mainland uk for unknown reasons and the Irish importer is unable to export across the sea (checked by customer )

 

Frustrating for end user

I understand the Irish importer. So difficult getting anything into Ireland... never mind trying to get it out again. Maybe you should put pressure on your importer or go direct to Hausken… saying the importer is....   an importer that doesn't import is....?

Beautiful set up, Edi has a very similar build in the works for me using a Kelbly Atlas tactical action. 

 

Looking at these photos I hope the barrel channel is big enough!!

I have the E-lite ordered but you said you would have to check if the proof research barrel would fit the channel.
