Hey Rich, I think you are a RUM type of guy :wink:. Those are some beautiful rifles and each one of them can do the job on most North American game.
Thank you for sharing.

Blessings,
Dan

I seem to recall some pictures of big game on the ground as result of your ability with one or two of those rifles. :grin:

I've had it quite a while CL, and have hunted with it a bit, just don't shoot it very often. Good rifle. Very easy to be accurate with it. Love the trigger.

Backpack mule deer hunt into the Cascades with it a few years back.

Lots of nice rifles here - and I don't blame you for posting the photo of your pronghorn hunt again. It's a good photo of an important hunt!

Here's what I use as my long range "everything" gun. It's a TC ICON Precision Hunter in a 6.5 Creedmoor. I swapped scopes right after this pic -- it now wears a Leica ER 3.5-14 instead of the Zeiss shown. I really like this setup -- so far, it does everything I want it to do. (The scope will fall short of elevation adjustment if I want to shoot farther than 1000 yds, but I haven't had that opportunity yet, so I've got no complaints.)

Very handsome, Maverick2. The Creedmoor is a fine cartridge for putting the bullet way out there.

Here is one that I have put together: Started out as a Savage Mod 12 VLP 300WSM.
It now sits in a HS-Precision Stock, Rifle Basix Sav2 Trigger, Vortex PST scope and throwing 190 ABLR to the target lately.

With RL26, I'm impressed with the performance.

First is my long range varmit rifle...
Savage 12 .223, 26" heavy barrel, weaver tactical pic base, 6 hole rings, SWFA 10X42 MIL/MIL Scope - loves 53 grain Hornady Superformance at 3500 FPS.

Second is my Long Range Big Game Rifle...
Tikka SS, 300 wsm, B&C medalist stock, Vortex Diamonback HP 3-12X42 BDC. Load is 190 LRAB at 2900 FPS...The bdc reticle corresponds perfect out to 600 yards. (Nevermind the Federal ammo in the pic - nickel brass wouldn't even feed in my rifle)

I am about pull the trigger and start a true long range build with a Remington Sendero in 300 Win, and a Nightforce Scope....

A couple of beautiful rifles, Scott. One simply must enjoy the 28 Nosler! Such a classic look.

The first picture is of me at the 2015 Kettle Falls Steel Challenge with the GAP 260 in action.

Next up is my very first real tack driver, a Jarett Rifles Inc. 280 AI wearing a USO 1.8-10x37 Mrad GAP Reticle in Badger rings. This is still a serious hunting rifle.

Left to Right:
GAP Thunder Ranch Rifle in 6.5x47 Lapua S&B PMII 5-25x56 DT CCW Mrad MSR Reticle also Suppressed, just not shown.
GAP/Surgeon 260 Remington Kahles K312II 3.5-12x50 DT CCW Mrad Mil dot Reticle (Naked)
Kimber Montana 6.5/300 WSM Leupold M3 3.5-10x40

Last is the Sako TRG-42 is a 300 Norma Magnum wearing a Premier Reticles Heritage 3.5-15x50 Gen. 2 Mrad DT MTC CCW scope w/a TBAC Suppresser with the new Ultra baffles in it (recalled this year and repaired).

*** I suppose I might edit this post by saying I don't hunt with the two GAP Built rifles only because I have them as full time precision long range tactical match rifles using target bullets. It's not like I couldn't develop a hunting load for them, but why? The 6.5/300 WSM will do it with more authority, and weights almost half as much. And for the really big stuff or those Wolves way out there, you can't beat a 230 Berger Hybrid going 2900 fps that's capable of 1/2 MOA out to 1,300 yards or more. Big, Bad and Beautiful, and not something you'd like having land anywhere near you, just me! ***

My 28 is a L/A Win 70 CRF from a 300RUM donor. Benchmark #6 fluted 27". Throated to run long and allow 175 ABLRs and 195 Bergers out to 3.6". IdahoCTD's four hole brake. Stock is a Winchester Safari magnum stock. I also have an older McMillan M40 for it. Both stocks have been bedded by me. I have a 20MOA steel picatinny with a recoil lug by Farrell bedded and mounted to the action. The scope on it was just for load work. I'm going to put a Leupold VX6 3x18 with the ZL2 turret and the TMOA reticle on it. I have two loads worked up with RL33. The 175ABLR shoots 3160FPS into .25 - .3 MOA and the 195 Berger shoots 3100FPS into .5-.6 MOA. The gun is heavy; it weighs just shy of 11lbs scoped and ready to hunt but it sure does settle well on a bipod. I could get it down to below 10lbs with a McMillan edge and lose the break.

The first 30 Nosler prototype. It was custom made with cooperation with Nosler in August of last year, a full 5 months before the launch at SHOT show. I wrote the article and it was published in Eastmans this past fall. Defiance Custom long action mated to a PROOF 8.44 twist bbl and changed the stock to an HS Precision.
Running 210 ablr's behind Retumbo at 2980 fps.
