Bolt Action Sniper Rifle

Recommended Posts

I have the JP tank brake on an AR and a .270 bolt action and I always give a "It's about to get loud here" warning whenever I wind up on a public range. The warning get's pooh, poohed by a lot of folks until after the first shot from the AR! They move away real fast when I call the next warning right before I touch off the .270 :P

The JP Tank Brake Works! And it's the loudest one available too! The only place it's blast is bearable is at the rear of the scope, I love it :D

6.5 Creedmoor. Light recoil. Decent barrel life. Easy to find quality factory match ammo. If you want something lighter recoiling then go in the 6mm range (243 included) but barrel life goes down a lot.

Funniest thread I have read on this site. Not only because of it being the mother of all thread revivals, but because of the fair amount of ignorance displayed by so many. 

 

Thank you for the laughs everyone.

Wow, things have really changed in 14 years. 

I liked the part when Matt Burkett said the Grendel will push a 123gr bullet to 2800 fps.

No way, and 1200 yards, and 308 only 1k. That is pretty funny.

I went with an Accuracy International AT in .308 and 6.5x47 Lapua w/ a Kahles k624i SKMR3 optic.

To start off I would probably go with a 223/556 built off a Remington 700 action. 223 has very little recoil and ammo is quite cheap. The Remington action will have a ton of aftermarket parts.

If the OP hasn't figured it out in the last 15 years, I think it's a lost cause.

Not sure what distances you will be shooting and how serious you are in winning. The 223/556 with 77 grain TMK

projectile are very accurate and I have no Problems making consistent hits out to 600 yards with 18 inch JP rifle. 

Make sure you have 1-8 or 1-7 twist to shoot heavier Bullets. You can build this rifle much lighter than any of the 

larger calibers and not have any felt recoil and see your hits. This is a great combination for your requested criteria.

Ammo is available on shelf and inexpensive in comparison to larger calibers. 

Good luck
