Here is a Browning A-Bolt in 6.5-284 that I just finished...



















While I was taking pictures of the Browning, I spotted this coyote out in the pasture....

Once again mate, I'm drooling into my keyboard...you have produced an absolutely beautiful looking rifle. The profile of the "bare bones" barrel, along with the muzzle break, and the all business, no bells and whistles look is awesome. I love it. Also, I must admit, that synthetic stock in the grey disruptive pattern looks great, much better than a plain black stock.

A nice healthy looking 'yote. Now, the obvious question...where is the next pic after spotting him mate? I would have thought that you would give the rifle a "trial run" and flatten that 'yote.

Thanks guys, glad you like the rifle...

As for the coyote, this one was one of "6" that I watched out in the pasture, in the background where I was taking the rifle pictures at. Lucky for these guys though, I didn't have my 30-284 with me....

Nice job, but I just have a problem with camo. I'm a "wood grain" kinda guy.

Mine's just a plain ol' .30-06 with one of the old Redfield 3X9 compact Golden 5 Star scopes mounted.

Gun porn again, is there no end to it?
My wallets quivering in fear at me looking at yet another excellent example of workmanship in 6.5 x 284.
Nice work again Deer Sniper.
What sort of barrel life are you getting out of the 6.5x284?

Nice build, as you said "what the customer wants-customer gets". Me I'm an old fashioned wood grain furniture guy for my firearms.

Thank you Pete!

Me personally, I do not shoot a 6.5-284, I built this Browning for a customer...

My best friend Phil from Mississippi, shoots a 6.5-284 that I built for him over ten years ago, and it has over 1,000 rounds through it and it will still shoot 1/2" groups @ 200 yds. if he does his part....
