Precision shooting. my rifles

I don't know if you guys are into this precision shooting stuff, but it sure is fun. trying to get one hole at long (and short) distances is really challenging.

My main precision gun is my Kimber LPt. It's a .308 and will reach out and touch someone a thousand yards away.

My medium range gun/varmint gun is a Savage model 12 stainless in .223. It has a 26" barrel.


My short range gun is my Ruger 10/22 that I tricked out. This thing is great out to about 75 yards.

I like them all but if you don't mind, what is the details on the 10/22 Ruger...Blue stock, barrel etc. I would like to do mine like that.

The stock is a Revolution stock. The barrel is from Tactical Solutions. The trigger group and trim is from ...I forget, but I think it was Rimfire Solutions. The thing is crazy accurate. I'd like to do a red one or a purple one.

I am a bolt action guy myself. The pistol thing is new to me in the last 2 years thanks to my wife's interest. Sad thing is I don't get the chance to shoot the rifles often enough.

Gmountain the 3 rifles I shoot are the same calibers as your 3.

Tikka T3 .308 with stainless barrel and laminated stock. Love it except for the price on the magazines!

Ruger 77/22 with stainless bull barrel and laminated stock.

Customized Mountain Eagle (Magnum Research) .223. It is based on a Sako Action with an adjustable Timney trigger (set at 1.75 #'s), Krieger 26" Fluted Stainless Barrel, muzzle brake, HS Depression Stock, Leupold VXIII 6.5x20 with sunshade and most often has a Harris bipod attached.

The Tikka and Ruger shoot great without any mods and I don't plan to make any. The Mountain Eagle is unbelievable to shoot. I don't reload so the gun doesn't get a custom round like it probably deserves but it shoots even cheap factory ammo very well and the high end accuracy rounds amazingly.
