    For those hunters/shooters out there..

    I recently came into possession of two rifles that my dad owned some 20 odd years ago, and sold off to my grandparents.... Neither rifle is stock any more, and are very highly modified, and incredibly accurate.... One is a Remington model 40XB .308 with a full floated Shilen bull barrel and the 1 in 10 twist rifling, and a leupold scope built to his specs, cannot shoot standard shelf bought .308 as the internal portion of the barrel is a few thousands of an inch smaller than the standard chamber of a .308, hand loads that have been trimmed and twisted and blown back out to proportion must be used. There is more into this gun than i am going to explain LOL. but the other, is a Browning .22-250, also with a fully floated shilen bull barrel, only this has polygonal rifling to the barrel. Has one of THE most beautiful thumbhole stocks i have ever seen, and fits like a glove....
    However i will say i do not believe i could ever hunt with the Remington 40XB.... too heavy, i dont mind if its a single shot but still, faaaar too heavy.

    Both guns will shoot a 1/4 MOA at 300 meters, and we have shot coyotes from 900 yards + with the 40XB



















    so much went into the rifles, its an honor to be in possession of these....

    The Browning's stock was hand made by my father, royal arms tiger maple...
    Ontop of that, the .22-250 used to be an old .243 varmint, the action is made by sako.... the gun is 40 or so years old, and has gone through some heavy changes....

    That Browning is downright stunning! I'm getting some nice hand-me-downs soon here too - we should go shooting sometime once I pick them up from my dad.
