FOR SALE: 28 Nosler Rifle on Savage Action. Includes Bell & Carlson Medalist Stock, new PTG Steel Lug, Oversized Bolt Handle, Leupold Bases & Leupold 1" Rings, Threaded Barrel (5/8x24) with thread protector. I built this rifle myself and it has been properly head-spaced with Go/No-Go Gauges, installed new steel barrel nut, PTG Steel Lug, Stock is bedded, Barrel is Free-Floated, Barrel is a Shaw Barrel [1-9 Twist] (very good quality barrel maker). This was built about 4 years ago and I consistently shot steel at 600 yards using 160 & 175 grain Nosler Accu-Bonds. This rifle has not been hunted with, only been to the range and I am moving to lighter rifles. I was going to use this as my primary hunting rifle but with my back surgery, I had to move to lighter rifles.
The barrel is threaded 5/8x24 and you can add any muzzle brake you want to this rifle. I had a 4 Port Brake on it and recoil was light. I had the barrel threaded by a gunsmith and he also re-cerakoted the barrel in Sniper Gray to add another layer of protection. The Savage action (built off a 7MM Mag action) is very smooth and it has an aftermarket Timney Trigger that is set at about 2.5 lbs. I am sure I missed something but have attached pics and please let me know if you have any questions. This rifle has not had any re-loads shot through it, only factory Nosler ammo. I did not need to work up a load for it as it was very accurate and consistent with the Nosler ammo.
The 28 Noser caliber is very effective at long ranges of at least 1,200 yards on Deer or Elk. It retains velocity and has a great ballistic coefficient beyond 1,000 yards.
