Bare rifles are nice and light with the McMillan stocks and fluted barrels.

Axial Precision users: What pillars did you install?

I’m waiting for my Carbon Six barrel to arrive and install...

7SAUM chambered to my dummy round @ 3.150 COAL (180 ELDM'S)
This is not my MBM Beast brake it was supposed to have installed, it's missing my Hells Canyon mag that was sent with dummy rounds. Mountain Tactical 20moa base, Yo Daddy trigger spring 2lbs, Leupold Mark5HD, AG Alpine Hunter stock.
Next it will get the bolt spiral fluted.

There’s some awesome looking rifles in this thread, and this isn’t much of a “build” but it’s got some aftermarket goodies.
Tikka T3x 6.5 needmoor with an Axial Precision stock (with a shorter lop to fit my wife better), High Desert Rifle Works bottom metal and LRI fluted bolt. Topped with a Zeiss v4 4-16x44. EB83FC9D-6F98-4C83-B1A0-2E6265E9AC10.jpeg

Nice setup. What COAL bullets are you running to make you need to go the LA route.

Thank you!

Shooting Hornady 162gr. ELD-M. I’m not sure the COAL, I’m using CBTO...but they’re just a bit too long for the SA mag. The M+ mag would probably be perfect but I got a good deal on a LA.

Yes it's 6.5# these stocks are not light by any means at 29oz, I'd like to fine a better option. Perhaps the wildcat composites long range, believe it's 21oz.
The Mesa stocks are advertised at 1.5 lbs. anyone else have any actual weights on them in the tikka version?

Mine weighed in at 31.7oz including the SS recoil lug. This if for a factory sporter barrel. Gained 2oz from factory stock. I’m not sure what a recoil lug weighs...
