I got the barreled action back from the 'smith today. This is my second .280AI, and I wanted this one lighter than my first. Here are the specs and some photos:
Remington SS ADL action, squared & lapped
Lilja #1 barrel, chopped at 22" and measures .590" at the muzzle
Remington Ti stock, barrel channel opened slightly
Leupold VX-III 3.5-10x, Talley LW's
Factory trigger & other parts
All up, she weighs 7lbs, 1oz and balances just behind the front action screw.
I think it'll work....
