The KUIU .300 WSM built by Steve Boswell is finished and shipped. As I mentioned in my first post, Steve is an absolute craftsman at his trade and meticulous about the smallest details. I simply could not get over how much time Steve dedicated on this gun. He simply left no detail out. As you will see in the photos it is quite obvious.
I am really looking forward to hunting with such a beautiful and well made rifle. It will certainly be a fantastic mountain gun at 5.25 lbs; The perfect balance of weight and incredible accuracy for sheep hunting.
As many of you requested from the 1st post, Steve included a list of componets in a note to me I have shared with you below. If you are in the market for a custom rifle please do yourself a favor and drop him a line before you make any decisions.
|Jason,Here’s a list of components as promised.
Kuiu 300 WSM Sheep Project by Boswell’s Custom Rifles:
X-treme Titanium Custom Action
Brown Precision Kevlar/composite stock w/custom paint
Hart s/s barrel, muzzle dia. .590 @25″ w/break
Lil’ Shorty Muzzle Break (Boswell’s Custom)
Zeiss Conquest 3.5x10x44 scope w/Rapid Z 800 reticle
Timney Trigger @2.5#
KG titanium metal finish
All components, except for the scope, were modified for compatibility and weight reduction. Additional weight reduction available if desired.
P.S. I shot this rifle again this morning before shipping. I think you will find the recoil very tolerable. I also recommend shooting your sheep in the shoulder bone (maximum energy transfer) with this bullet due to its great penetrating abilities. I shot completely through a 10″ log during testing. I’m very excited for you and wish I were tagging along. Looking forward to hearing stories from your trip and seeing tons of pics/video. It’s been a pleasure building this rifle for you.
