Suhl 150 Headed My Way Next Week



Log in to see fewer ads
I bought this Suhl 150 from Tommy here at RFC with a like new Shilen ratchet 4 groove barrel on it. Tommy and I have spoke on the phone and hit it off right away. He said Don Blue did all the work putting barrel on and bedding the Meridith benchrest stock. He was kind enough to send me a couple 5 shot groups at 50yds shot with Lapua Midas Plus. Here is the gun and groups. I bought the scope and all. It has a Hoehn tuner and a Tasco Japan 36x scope.

Congratulations Brad. Think you will be happy with it. Don does good work and Tommy is a good guy to do business with.

Shot the Suhl 150 for about 2hrs today. Wow! Don Blue knows what he is doing. This was my smallest 5 shot 50yd group ever. I now see what all the fuss is about these Shilen Ratchet 4 groove barrels.



Here was some more. Only shot about 3 boxes.

One thing I have learned about you is that you are always right.

I am tickled. I measured that one group at .248 outside at farthest point. I just subtract.224 for bullet diameter. So .024 ctc my personal best. Don't think I can top that. I was shocked to shoot it. But give Don Blue some credit. He knows how to build them.
