First off, I do not often endorse custom rifles builders because for at least 15 years I was one as well. So why promote they other guy...right?

Funny how things change as one gets older.

Most of them, meaning the other custom rifle makers and parts vendors I did business with years ago were all so eager to sell me what they would call custom rifle parts. Funny thing is, most of them just blew me off and no idea that I had my own shop and did all of my custom product design and computer programming in house.

Direct Drive, Driftin', Parker, 2Many, Snit, Nick90, Evo, you know what I am saying here.

So I get to meet this guy Travis from R-Bros.Custom Rifles in Elma, WA. This guy Travis is as honest and true as they come. He comes in for a tour of my shop and he's just like a sponge. Yearning for any tips on custom target rifle building from an old tool and die maker such as myself. I liked him right off much like I did Todd the first time he came to visit.

So here's the point of this post.

Check out RBros rifles in Elma Washington if you really want a light weight custom rifle, easily capable of insane long shots delivered with extreme accuracy.

Just remember as you look at the pricing list ... You get what you pay for.

And one more thing for guys like you Dave ...

The Bitterness of poor quality remains long after sweetness of low price is forgotten.

Cheers ... Marv

i was just talking to the guy at the range, they have 600 yard matches every other week i think it is...

so now, im doing another rifle....

was going to go with a 700 LR, or a Browning X Mark Target, but will give him a look, smiths are always better than factory, and the service from alot of them is above and beyond, depending on who it is....

thanks for the heads up Marv

My buddy has 2 RBros rifles. A 7mm Rem Mag and a .338 Lapua Imp.

Both set up for long range hunting. They're excellent rifles for sure,and the skills my buddy has at the LR game are impressive.

The long range fad does nothing for me.

Travis is a stud.
Glad you and he made a deal.
His guns are the best that have ever been slipped into my mule's scabbard.

Shooting is a game of accuracy.
It doesn't matter if it's 75 yards or 1000.
The better prepared shooters are the ones that pursue the best equipment and practice with it.

Few will experience what a gun is mean't to be.

Evo,

Have you decided what the new long ranger gun will be shooting yet ?

Let me know when you do some LR shooting with your new bolt gun, I'd like to see if my new little gas gun can push some copper out there bit.

im probably going to stick with what i know how it flies, either a 7mm mag or .300 mag, although id deffinately entertain other calibers like 6.5 creedmoore or 6.5 x 284 Norma... both the later tho would definitely require me to start handloading, and ive never done that... yet...

when i do this one, it definitely wont be for just target purposes, but i want it fully capable, so im gonna have to pay attention to what i do... not sure if either 6.5 rounds would be suitable for Elk, but ive never hunted for Elk so im not up to snuff on that yet.... id like to start going with my brother tho so id like it to be able to do that, and go to the range and kick some ass.....

Damn. I want one....but at 4+K for a light hunting rifle....OUCH! I would love have one of the larger hunting rifles in .338 Lapua. Drooooooool.

Still have no idea how or if this thing shoots.......



Maybe one of these days I'll find the time to at least get it sighted in...let alone put some boolits down range with it. I'm in this one for a little under $2400 with the Leupold optic.

rofl

Target practice? You shoot the 7mm Mag much? My Rem 700 in 7mm Mag is one thumper of a rifle. Probably didn't help that I dropped the heavy original wooden stock for a light weight composite McMillan. My least favorite big gun to shoot.....it's just mean. I recommend a good muzzle break.

Hey Marv - you up for another project? Let's get a muzzle break put on this Rem 700!

Sorry Parker ... No can do. I gave away all of my barrel vises, barrel wrenches and the other assortment of gun smith tools to a up and coming young man who is interested, and motivated to do this kind of work.

Parker, my last LR rifle was a Mod 700 with a Shilen barrel and Timney trigger, i used to shoot 80 rounds a day when i took it out... same with the -06.. i dont mind getting punched... hell i traded my Bushmaster XM15 for a Ruger M77 MK II .338 Win Mag rofl


i like the 7mm round actually, .300 is a little more poppy but thats alright... id really like to shoot one of the 6.5 rounds first tho...

Well, let's get 'em built boys, then have go or three at the range.

I'm working a bipod issue on my .308 today, and should have the 6.5 re-zero'd in at 200 this weekend. Ready to stretch both rifles out as soon as this weather allows.

Nice Mountain Ascent. 300WM?

The above gives rise to the Paker Theorem: As rifle case volume increases, rifle weight decreases.

I would suggest the inverse to achieve happiness both on the range and in the field....

I might be currently building a little something something. DBM install next, then off for Cerakote, then back to my ponderosa for final assembly. It might make a stop in between for some lapping / accuratizing work. Goal is to be killing paper by June 1st. It should be sub MOA when complete - I hope.

With the quality of some off the shelf rifles these days I have a hard time paying that much for a rifle. Give me a Savage, some decent glass, some good hand loads, and I'll be hitting out at 600 with ease.

Not saying that they are not worth the investment to folks with the money, but personally not for me.

Had a first time shooter out this weekend. He had never shot anything over a bb gun, ever. Working him up from pistols through 9MM AR's took very little time, and then he started shooting my Savage 5R in .308. Ran through 100-400 yards very quickly, and his first shot at the 600 yard target, BONG! Hunter, my son, went 9/12 at 600, and said shooter error was why he missed those three.

I'm sure these R Brothers Custom Rifles would easily be able to do that as well, but after rebate my rifle cost me $299.

Love seeing the nice rifles though.
