Phillips' World Record Rifle for Sale

Sadly, James Phillips (JamesinTN) has decided to get out of competitive long-range benchrest shooting. He’s told us that travel costs (gas/motel) have just gotten too high, and the process has become too much work, and too little fun. James’ decision means that you can purchase a world-record rifle for a bargain price. James actually has three rifles for sale. You can see them all in this Forum Classified Listing.

Rifle 1 — 22 Dasher & 6 Dasher–World Record Gun
This rifle earned James 3 World Records and is capable of earning more. Rem 40X action, Shehane stock, Jewell trigger.
