Closest rifle is an Accuracy International AW chambered in 6CM. The scope is a S&B 5-25 and the suppressor is a Shark. The barrel is a Krieger chambered by Dave Bruno. I normally use Lilja barrels, but Dave had this one in stock and he is set up to do metric threads.

The other is an Accuracy International AWM in 338 Lapua. The scope is a S&B 5-25 and the suppressor is a SureFire. With 250 gn bullets the recoil is not bad. But when you get the 300s up to speed, it can knock you around a bit.

WOW!!! Verrrrry nice Tom!

I'm sort of a noob when it comes to long range shooting. What exactly is a 6CM? (and why did you pick it over one of the more popular AW offerings, like 300WM?)

The 6CM (Competition Match) is a wildcat based on the 243. It is just like a 243 Ackley but with a 30' shoulder instead of the normal-ish 40' Ackley. The 30' shoulder helps with feeding from mags and slows brass growth down a bit from the 20' standard 243 shoulder. Think of it as a really long 6BR.

The nice thing is I can use real slow powders like H1000 under 115 gn bullets and I dont have to run any pressures to get an easy 3100 fps. With the low pressure and cooler burning powder, my barrel and brass last a long time.

I also went with the 6CM because 115 gn Sierra Matchkings are much cheaper than 6.5mm 139/142s and 308 210/220s. I also shot out a couple barrels in 6XC. Good caliber and very easy to load for, but barrel life was crap. As an added bonus, 115s kicks less than some of the other popular bullets used for long range. A lot less. I can easily spot hits/misses as the recoil does not throw the target out of the scope even when dialed up to 25X.

If I want to throw a heavy bullet downrange I have my AI in 338 Lapua (also in above pic) or I can swap barrels/bolts and shoot 7mm Remington mag.

Thanks for the explanation Tom! One of these days I'm going to have to get into reloading. The whole reason I went with .308 was to be able to have a decent selection of factory ammo. Sooner or later I may break down and try my hand at reloading though.

It's worth every penny invested. FGMM costs about 46-60 a box around here and I can reload better ammo for my rifle for 12.00 for the same size box. Really no comparision. And you get better accuracy once you neck size because the back end of the case doesn't expand any more it's just the neck expanding each time.

Once you switch you will swear by it. My groups shrunk by almost half.

Good luck,
Merritt

Very cool! What a cheap way to work on breathing and trigger control! You don't see too many .22's built like that!

I think these shooting sticks are the best set for all around calling.

I did here there was some issue with the company such as changing hands, etc. I hope not as they work great!

Looks like you're right. The web site is down for the manufacturer. Most of the sites I found that carried them are dated too, most saying unavailable. If you happen to come upon current information I'd appreciate a PM.
