I commissioned Borden Accuracy to build this rifle for a Whitetail hunt in Alberta in 2002 (where 400 yd. shots down cut-lines were not uncommon according to the guide). It took 7 months to get, but I had it for the hunt and killed a bruiser 10 point on the 1st day of the hunt (at 80 yds.). I've not hunted anywhere since where shots over 100 yds. are required, so I'm letting it go. Here are the specs:

Borden Model K Hunting Rifle
RBRB Repeater Action MM104
Rimrock Camo Stock (pillar bedded)
Hart Varmint Taper 24" Barrel (1 in 10 twist) chambered in .300 WSM.
Timney Trigger (3 lbs.)
Borden Bases
Talley Rings
Borden Dies
Swarovski 3-12x50 Scope with 4A reticle

The rifle was shipped with a test target showing a .527" 3-shot group (see photo below). I didn't have time to work up a hand load before my hunt, so I experimented with several factory loads and determined that Winchester Supreme 150 gr Ballistic Silvertip ammo provided sub MOA groups out to 200 yds.
Price is $5,500 shipped to your FFL.

Thanks for looking, and feel free to PM me with any questions.
Cheers,
K-EIGHTY

Dave, Everyone needs a 400 yd. rifle. Besides, they're a lot cheaper than trap guns...at least the ones you buy. Ha-Ha. On second thought, you better save for that honeymoon.
