Is that a LH stock or is the pic just turned around? If yes, then who makes em?

How about some details, or are they posted some where else?

The rifle started life as a LH 700 bdl 300 RUM, the barreled action was sent to APS, along with a lilja 1-9 30" #8 contour barrel and a LH 2 1/2 varminter thumhole from Richards micro-fit at www.rifle-stocks.com.
It is chambered in 7mm Allen mag and fitted with these goodies after an action job, trigger job, and pillar bedding.
Badger ord. extractor and recoil lug, HSP DBM, QD muzzle break.
It will be fitted with a set of Ken Farrel 20 moa bases, IOR rings and an EXOTIC 4x16x56 USS scope. WHITETAILS BEWARE!

Ridge Runner:

You're really gonna love that round when you get it up and running.

I see you went with a 1-9 twist. What bullet and what weight are you planning on using?

Also, what ranges do you plan on shooting it at?

Keep us posted as to the results when you get some bullets down range.

SS, I had kirby throat the rifle for the 160 accubonds, for what I intend to do it should do really well. 500 yds here is a pretty long hunting shot, 1k is only possible when all the planets are aligned with jupiter,
also I figure by the time I'm proficient at 1k it'll be time to reballel anyhow and we'll go from there. I have a whole stable full of 7mm's and none of them are fast twist barrels so it made sense to me.
My lifetime goal is a whitetail at 1k, and I got a lot of homework to do.
