Kit weight

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd cut and paste the post about barrel weights from the old site:

 

I made a list of some of the weights of barrels I had hanging around the barrelshop. Just for future reference, and they haven't been chopped to finish length, nor chambered or threaded, just rifled blanks in 6 and 6.5mm calibre:

 

Fluted barrels:

 

R1(rem varmint) 24.5"--3.6 lb

R2(Rem varlite) 24.5"--3.2 lb

R4(Rem Pss) 26.5"--3.7 lb(flutes were deeper than the R1 by .5mm)

Sako Varmint 22.5"--3.0lb

 

Unfluted barrels:

 

R1(Rem Varmint) 26.0"--4.3 lb

R3(Rem sporter) 24.5"--2.8 lb

 

One barrel with chamber and threads:

 

Sako Varmint 24.0"--3.1 lb

 

 

Some stocks:

 

B&C PSS 2.5lb

McM mchunter 2.5lb

McM mchunteredge 2.2lb

 

If anyone has other stocks, rifles, scopes, or other gear they would like to add to the list, please feel free, as can be useful information for future builds..I'll add more when I can.

 

Cheers

JR, hope all is well.

was great meeting you a few months ago at the IWA.

next year?

 

The production of our stocks at PSE have slowly found routine and

weights are now quite consistent.

Hunter Ultralight carbon/kevlar. 1.5 lb or 670 -700 grams

Hunter Light glass/carbon a tad under 1.9lb or 850 grams

heavier no problem.

I just joined this site so I hope folk don't mind me reviving an old thread.

I have one of your stocks Edi, 2 seasons in and still going strong.

 

I'm running it under a truflite 1/10 .308. I forgot to weigh it before I fitted it. 21" including the chamber.

Remington Action

She is shooting Good.

I'm still experimenting with ammo, shoots 165 grain stuff well.

I want to test her on 150 grain, 155 grain, and 175 grain stuff next.

 

I also want to take some nice pics before the end of the season.

I have no decent up close pics of it on my PC.

 

I'll try and post some later tonight or tomorrow.
