Building a Presicion Rifle Part 5 – Long range steel in the snow.

I must confess I am a little behind regards writing articles. I have been very busy shooting and testing kit which is very important or I would have nothing to write about! Last week I made the winter pilgrimage to Wales with some of the regular crew with a goal in mind. To run the…

Load testing with Reload Swiss RS60 and the GnZ Precision Rifle build.

I took a trip down to Bisley today in order to run a barrel break in on the .260Rem and do a little load testing. Although the weather was pretty awful the day proved fruitful and results were very impressive. You may have read the previous Presicion Rifle article which featured Mik Maksimovic at Dolphin…

Load testing – Reload Swiss RS52

Reload Swiss are the newest propellant brand in the U.K. Propellants have suffered with supply problems in recent years here. Varget – the powder choice for many became virtually unobtainable and many other popular powders became a little hit and miss regards availability. The Reload Swiss brand was therefore highly anticipated.. The rollout was fairly…

Building a Precision Rifle – Part 3 – Extended range shooting.

The GnZ Precision rifle build has up to now been a huge success. At both 100yds and 600yds the rifle achieved very good results. Would this bear out at longer range. First we should bear in mind the budget so far.. MDT HS3 Chassis system – £500 Second hand Remington 700 ADL – £350 Second…

In the last article I discussed fitting the Timney trigger which was kindly demonstrated by Graham from ACP Shooting, Sussex, UK. The fitting was indeed as easy as the instruction manual promises (despite mild brain freeze on our part due to the left handed action). The 511 is a popular upgrade trigger for the left…

Building a Precision Rifle Part 2 – MDT HS3 Stock assembly and DNZ Gamereaper mounts.

After a couple of weeks of paperwork and thumb twiddling the second hand Remington 700 finally arrived (many thanks to ACP Shooting, Sussex, UK). I had been trawling the used ads online and found an ADL (basic model) for £350. The rifle is well used but in satisfactory condition given the price. The barrel is…

We have a number of rifles available to use here at GnZ. The calibres are the tried and tested old favourites.. .308, .223, .303, 30-06..

Upgrading your Remington 700 trigger to a Timney.

If you shoot bolt action rifles then you have no doubt heard of Timney triggers. Allen Timney began making aftermarket triggers in 1946. Although Allen is sadly no longer around the company remains family owned and adheres to his original ethos – to make superb triggers which will enhance the accuracy of the rifle. Why…
