"Rifle Makeover"

I finally finished coating my rifle and stock this past week. I had the bolt fluted by Chad Dixon a few weeks ago also. Im happy with the results.

The rifle is a 270WSM built by Blagg rifles on a M70 WSM action with a #4 pacnor barrel.

Stock is a B&C Medalist that I sanded and shaped a bit.

Sharp looking piece of equipment. Looks sleek. How's it handle?

I've had the rifle for a while now and absolutely love it. It shoots lights out and I've been testing the 150gr nosler accubond longrange lately. Shot a 5" group at 700 yards a few months ago. Seems everything I load for it shoots well.

Typical groups at 100 yards.

Its hard to know where to stop when you get into a rifle yours. I have 2 I have been working on for a few years now and the one thing I am seeing is how the rifle reflects my personality. Pretty awesome and when I grab either one I feel a great sense of satisfaction. Hope you do the same.
