Introducing The Black Widow

30 posts in this topic

Here's my friend Frank latest build. I named it the Black Widow. It's an old German made Voere Shikar action, rechambered for you guess it, 280 Ackley Improved per my recommendation. The rifle has 26" Krieger, 9 twist in no. 5 contour. Stock is Richard Micro-fit Thumbhole. The rifle was built by my friend Leroy Venson. Waiting for Nosler Brass to arrive so that load development can begin. Enjoy!DSC01473.jpgDSC01474.jpgDSC01475.jpgDSC01476.jpgDSC01477.jpgDSC01478.jpg

That is one sexy looking rifle. It looks like it will shoot the eye out of a ladybug at 300-yards. Looking forward to the range report.

I have two of Richards Stocks. I don't think they are any heavier than factory wood. One of mine is on an XP-100 that frankly could use more weight,the other replaced a Mauser Stock and I think the weight difference was negligible.

280 parent case is the 30-06. The Ackley version has the reduced body taper and a 40 degree shoulder. The round is very efficient that ballistic wise, it nipped in the heels of 7MM Remington magnum.

If weather permit, It'll be tomorrow. We can't make it last week due to prior commitment. My buddy Frank was just as anxious to see how his rifle will perform LOL.
