Wow the cmp thread was quite a read. Good luck to the dude. Someone over there has a serious axe to grind with Bula for some reason.

Thanks from XM25Ren

Here is my example of Rick Bowen's work, he built me an all USGI national match on a forged rear lug Rockola receiver and fully bedded . A masterpiece in my opinion, a true work of art.





Thanks from XM25Ren

Don't get it? I read nothing but high praise from him for Jeff and Bula on that thread. Where is the dull axe you speak of?

It may have been deleted but I assure you it was not "praise".

Not really Bula as I have not had dealings with them, but rather a fanboy who is out of control, he knows who he is and I have great disdain for this person(I would say man but I don't think he is one).

XM25REN

or just

Ren

Thanks from geeck

Apologies Snyper thought you meant the OP.

Getting back on topic I finally had time to go up and meet Rip. My but he does live in the woods. Way in the woods. Real cool place to build rifles and shoot them. He has access to a 5500 acre spread and has range markers at 25meters, 100yds thru 1000yds, and a spot on the hill to shoot 1600yds.

Asked what that was for and he showed me the Barrett M107 and smiled. Asked was it accurate and he looked at me like I had cursed in front of his wife or something. He said with the special lathe turned solid projectiles he has custom made from solid brass in 710gr. and 750gr. it shoots sub-moa at 1600. He's working on 810gr. now.

The secret is the BORS he put on it. Not his rifle, a customers. Same guy that owns the land and lets him use it. The Barrett Optical Ranging System is too cool. In testing and use with military. Takes the need for a spotter out of the equation.

All in all I would say he has it all together and I found him very knowledgeable, personable and easy to talk to. We got to shoot a couple of his GW M14 rifles he built. Those were both sub-moa rifles out to the quick 500yd. set-up we did. Darn cows.

He pulled out a 762mm firearms rifle he did and asked if I had heard all the nonsense about how terrible they were. I told him a little of it I read. He spoke very highly about Jeff Miller and how Bula had taken the 1st iterations of the 762mmf receiver and have now turned it into "a force to be reckoned with." He loaded it and told me to bench it and fire it. He pointed out a fallen log about 3" diameter 200yds. out or so, hit elevation clicks few times said cut it in half until you are out. All I could see was a black line on ground so aimed for that. I cut it in six pieces with 20 rds. I was convinced he knows how to build one for sure.

Nothing better than personal firsthand experience he said. He smiles a lot but don't drink so I had to leave. He frowns if you miss. I have to warn anyone else that goes there. If you miss more than twice he will ask to see the rifle, tell you to make it safe and shoot it himself. He hands it back saying "nothing wrong with that rifle. Shoot some more."

All in all it was a great trip. I like him and his wife can sure cook! Will be going back to get my other two in few months when he is up and running.

Thanks from Foxfire32, RDS, hytekrednek and 2 others

You folks from and near Alabama are good people, in fact I have never met someone from Alabama I didn't like!

I sure would like to get down there and sample some real home cooking and do a little shooting. Its just so damn far away.
