Default New Contender Step Barrel 20 Vartarg

Just finished a trigger job and hammer spring replacement on my new toy. Barrel is (Thanks DAN L) an OTT 20 Vartarg step barrel (1.25 Diameter) 16.5 inches long. May be some potential here. Scope is a Burris MTAC 6.5-20x50mm. Forearm is a Tony G Pillar Bedded. Temporary grip is a beautiful Dave D. red laminate, but Walnut grip to match forearm is being order. Cartridges are loaded with a light load of H4198 and 32 Gr Hornady V Max. Rest of course is a Fuzz work of art. I am guessing around 3300-3500? This thing is a HOOT to shoot. Cant wait to really have time to play with. Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas. I KNOW I did.
God Bless
Doug


Target was at 50 Yards

Default New Contender Step Barrel 20 Vartarg

Neat rest! Would have loved to have one when I shot Contenders at 500 meters in Colorado. Who built it? Vic

That is a really NICE Contender, great job and it looks like it might shoot pretty well too. I really like the TC platform. Keep us posted on your efforts.
