Akila Chassis for my Blaser 300 Norma

Post by longrider »

This combo was phenomenal in my Blaser Pro. Going to try this Akila out.

A big thanks to Jason of Euro for helping me get this together

That’s a pretty hard core setup. What is the purpose of the gauze tape around the front half of the scope?

Pretty easy to bang up the front of the scope, so I use medical wrap for protection

I just returned from dialing in the rig with factory Norma berger 230 OTM’s.

Nice adjustments w/o tools, very comfortable and well thought out chassis. The rear monopod very well thought out, with quick adjustment and fine. 13.5# total weight with match barrel etc.

4 rds to get my 100 zero, last 2 touching dead on @100. Instead of popping some steel close up (Cody Gun Club) I ranged one of our plates @ 1109 dialed 7.2 and turned the red light on first round. I then turned to our faithful coyote plate @ 1064 and rang his bell with a center hit with 6.7 mils. 547, 1120 and then a perfect 1.4 hold off @ 400 yds.

Flawless setup, what a hoot to shoot, 13 rds after sight in with 13 hits.

I just renamed my Akila “Akiller” for this hunting season’s LR overlook setup.

I just added the RRS 9.5” dovetail to the m-lok forend and the pro- clamp for my TBAC bipod. Great system for dovetail (ARCA) or picatinny.

This 300 win Blaser is my 8.5 pound rig for hauling into high country, it too is sub 1/2 moa (Barnes Factory 195 LRX)

Euro optics is a good source. They are dealers.

Euro Optics generally only gets rid of things as a retailer side when they are either poor of customer service or very difficult to deal with on the shipping end. Something to consider.
