    260 Remington | Stevens 200 Project *updated 5/15*

    Good Morning Savage Shooters,

    I thought I'd share my build as it progresses I have a co-worker who has known about Stevens 200 builds for quite some time, and through his persuasion, and ultimately the cheap price of a Stevens 200 at Academy, I finally got around to building one.

    [img width=600 height=450]http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb35/MikeMcCa/Shooting-Guns/DSC00545.jpg[/img]

    Specs:
    Stevens 200 Long Action | Center feed
    Shilen Stainless Match 26" .260 Remington Barrel
    Choate Tactical stock
    SSS Competition Trigger
    NSS Competition Recoil Lug

    Although it's not done by a long shot, it's getting very close. I plan to hit the metal with some Duracoat or GunKote soon, and if funds allow, have the stock painted in GAP camo. I'll also be leaning towards Leupold for glass, but again funds will ultimately dictate that.

    *5/14 update* Got the Leupold mounted. Here is the best group I've shut thus far. 5-rounds and that's a water bottle cap for reference.

    Let me know what you think :)

    What is that on the muzzle? Is it threaded for a break?

    Nice rifle

    Very nice rifle and your dog looks like it has been missing a few meals.

    Minus the upgraded recoil lug yours is the long action fraternal twin of my SA 260. You'll love it when you get it all hooked up. I just did mine in duracoat using one of the new Shake N' Spray kits. You might also look into CeraKote. There is an air dry version of it now as well. Seems most people think is wears a little better. It'll be my next coating project. It is a little more expensive but you don't have to mix anything. You could also use the preval sprayers that come with the duracoat kit which you can pick up for under $10. Also take a look at the vortex PST line when you move on to the glass. There aren't many on the market yet but it is a fine scope that comes in cheaper than other brands while performing very well.

    Thanks for the comments guys!

    Yeah, my dog is a fatty. :)

    Regarding the question as to whats on the end of the barrel, it's the plastic cap thats put on the barrels by Shilen/Northlander to protect it in shipping. I just left it on for good measure while it sits around.

    Varget 7-08; that is one slick looking rig!

    Ah that makes sense. I was looking at it on my phone and just couldn't figure out what it was. The gun looks great I look forward to the range report.

    Nice looking setup there Hank!

    *5/15 update*

    I got my Leupold VX3 6.5-20x50 LRT mounted up. I really do think I'm a Remington convert. I've got another Stevens 200, and I'm still trying to decide which caliber. I'm thinking 6mmBR but not sure yet.

    Nice looking build there.

    Go 6BR on your next build, you'll love it. Look at a CBI Barrel. Mine is a tack driver.
    Oddball chamberings are way more fun! Especially if they are in 6mm or 44cal.

    My Savage .308 is a tack driver too, I feed it 155.5 fullbore bergers it loves them out to 1100 yards. It has a stock Savage take off barrel i bought on this site. (I hope to find someone else here, dumb enough to sell a stock take off barrel for $40.00 so I can get another one) ;D
