New woodchuck slayer

I finally got my newest woodchuck rig together. After a four month wait for the barrel I only have to wait another five months to shoot a woodchuck with it...

It's a Savage model 10 gloss blue action, 24" Shilen stainless select match barrel in .20 Practical(10" twist), Northland Shooter Supply recoil lug, Sharp Shooter Supply competition trigger, Keystone Sporting Arms (Revolution) Long Range Varmint stock in blue laminate (steel epoxy bedded with pillars) and sporting a Bushnell 4200 6-24x40 mil-dot with Burris XTB bases and Signature series Zee rings.

Re: New woodchuck slayer

Thats a great build! How does it shoot?

I wanted that color on mine, but 1/2 the price on a clearance stock, I learned to like the Apple Jack.

I am 90% of the way thru a similar build 22-250. New unfinished stock, glass bed/pillar bed, stock action, stock trigger (2.7# pull) stock brl with a Nikon 6-18x40 MD.

Before the build started it was shooting .251" ctc at 100 yards, so hopefully it is holding or shooting a bit tighter.

Have you looked into an over sized bolt handle? I have been kicking one around since theres more meat around the action and the bolt handle kinda of gets lost.

Here is where mine was at about a month ago.


You can have it when you rip it from my cold, dead hands.........

Re: New woodchuck slayer

I haven't had an opportunity to shoot it yet. I just finished it(98% finished) Tuesday morning. I don't think I'm going to go with the oversized bolt handle. It's a summer rifle(no gloved hands) so I shouldn't have trouble with the size of the factory handle.

Re: New woodchuck slayer

Nice rifles!!

I'm willing to die trying to keep them; Are you willing to die trying to take them?
