Here is my latest rifle build. Nothing too crazy but should be a fun project for me! This is a switch barrel setup, meaning I'm putting together a setup that will allow me to switch barrels to choose between two chamberings. First one in .22-250 and the second in .308 win. This is done easily with a savage platform. The .22-250 and .308 share the same bolt, action, and magazine, only the barrels are changed over. A savage has a threaded barrel and barrel nut that will allow me to consistently reproduce the same headspacing each time the barrels are switched.
This isn't quite like switching barrels on a shotgun, not quite as easy, but since I love to tinker and turn wrenches I don't mind.
So here's my setup.
Action is a stevens 200 short action
Trigger is a competition trigger assembly from Sharp Shooter Supply
Stock is choate tactical
.22-250 barrel is a factory heavy varmint barrel from savage 26" with 1 in 12" twist
.308 barrel is a factory heavy barrel from savage 24" 10 fcp hs precision 1 in 10" twist
extended bolt handle from sharp shooter supply
caldwell 9-13" bipod
savage two piece steel weaver bases
1" burris medium height signature series zee rings
scope is Nikon Buckmaster 6-18x mil-dot w/ side focus, sunshade and target turrets
That's about it so far. Just need to start tuning hand loads for each caliber.
Enjoy the crappy photos.
