Description

GUNWERKS SKUHL GUNWERKS .375 RUGER GUNWERKS COMPLETE CUSTOM WITH SWAROVSKI OPTICS, BALLISTIC TURRET, BT ATLAS BIPOD, CASED AMMUNITION, DISTRESSED FINISH, CUSTOM ENGRAVED.. ok Alex hold your breath I gotta lot to say bout this one!

NOTE THIS RIFLE HAS THE SWAROVSKI 1-8 ILLUMINATED RIFLE SCOPE WITH BDC.. BADASSIAN II (THE OTHER LISTING) HAS THE KAHLES 3-18 MOAK.

PRICE IS FOR ONE RIFLE AND ACCESSORIES ONE RIFLE ONE ONE ONE. THE OTHER ONE IS MINE MINE MINE. YOU ARE BUYING ONE. (1).

ROCKEGROUP RAMBLINGS: I hate fake wood stocks. I hate cheese ass engraving on rifles. I hate distressed steel firearms as I feel I can scratch em up enough on my own. I have never liked the Gunwerks Clymer stock, I prefer Magnus. I order all my Gunwerks with carbon wrapped barrels, not straight steel. Houston, we have a problem! I freaking adore this rifle. It is freaking spectacular. Chock full o’ awesomeness. One is mine and the other is yours. I ain’t giving mine up. This rifle feels perfect with awesome ergonomics. Twenty inch barrel and shoots 625 yards all day long. Swarovski Ballistic Turret means you range to target and turn the turret to that range. Brown Bear Monster/Moose/Elk/Cape Buffalo/ Wolf/ Muley/ Mastodon whatever at 425 yards? Turn the turret to 4.25. Target at 600 yards turn the turret to “6”. Completely tuned, zeroed and set up by Gunwerks with the included Gunwerks ammunition and Swarovski BT.

CALIBER 375 RUGER: Short version the .375 Ruger was designed to demolish the .375 H&H and does so admirably. The .375 Ruger with the Gunwerks ammunition is a bona fide 600 yard plus shooter. If you read the numerous reviews from the “experts” the .375 Ruger is truly your one “do it all” gun as it has loads from 220 Grain to 300 Grain with bullets from ELD and VLD Long Range to Nosler Partition and AccuBond. Hunters going to Africa typically take two rifles; one for plains game and one for Big Game. No longer necessary. Keep in mind this is of course a stellar North American all around rifle, with one caveat explained below..

BACK STORY: Ok so I disliked “on paper” everything this rifle is as stated above, and was wrong as stated above. Ordered one for me and one for you and finally they hath arrived. Ordered mine for a Bison hunt three months from now, so I have three months to shoot mine twice a week and become more intimate and proficient with it. I fully expect to be able to shoot a 10 inch plate at 450 yards with no problem from a tripod or from the prone off a pack by the time I leave. Alex says whoopee 10 inches at 450 yards? That is barely under 2 moa! Yep. Rifle shoots minute of angle; in fact at 100 yards with both the Gunwerks ammo and the 300 Grain AccuBond it shoots holes in holes. From the bench off a pack. Different in the field.. so anyhoo I wanted a caliber to hammer the largest animal on the North American continent and find it is perfectly acceptable for deer all the way up to said Bison. You check out the caliber reviews..

RECOIL WARNING: This rifle is NOT FOR NEW SHOOTERS. Any new shooter will develop a flinch and find shooting distasteful when they get knocked on their ass because they are standing straight up or leaning backward on the bench. To be fair the same thing would happen with a .300 Win Mag for those not in the know. Recoil is acceptable for an experienced shooter. I shoot mine in a T shirt at Ben Avery twice a week, no problem. That said I shoot 8 rounds per session and move on to my other work and or personal platforms after. This is not a rifle you shoot 20-30 rounds out of rapid fire. It is a premier hunting rifle designed to extirpate whatever it’s sights are on with one round, and of course a follow up if necessary. 

MORE RAMBLING: You do know that a Carbon Fiber wrapped barrel is a steel barrel wrapped with Carbon Fiber right? It is not lighter than a steel barrel. How could it be? There are reasons for a Carbon Wrapped barrel but I just felt like taking a shot at Alex. By the way Alex was at the range yesterday. He drew an “Any Antlered Deer” permit here in Az which is a big deal. His hunt is this coming weekend so of course he went to Sportsman’s Warehouse and bought a .300 Win Mag, Vortex scope, had it mounted. Lane next to mine put his target at 100 yards. My rifle is shooting holes in holes he fires 12 rounds and is not on the cardboard (which is 48″ x 48″). His hunt is THREE DAYS FROM TODAY. Typical. Is that you too? Big problemo. Anyway he is shooting 3 feet to the left and his windage is buried all the way “to the right” and will not move the POI any further. Again, short version had him pull the target to 50 yards and told him his windage turret was reversed CCW not CW. Of course no one believes me till we cranked it opposite. Zeroed in three rounds. Right was left and left was right. Schmidt & Bender is notorious for this and have found this on Vortex a couple times. Hey and to be honest here I just got back from an Aoudad hunt with Gunwerks where I was “that guy”. Made a dumbass mistake, my fault. Not telling you today but yes I have made one or two boo boos. Which is why we practice for months before a hunt.. normally.

GUNWERKS STATEMENT:  “The ClymR stock’s negative comb reduces felt recoil while allowing for higher recoil pad positioning. This positions the recoil pad more inline with the barrel, thus reducing muzzle rise. The result is a more forgiving shot with heavy recoiling rounds and quicker follow-ups * The SKUHL grip is designed to fit nearly any hand from large to small and is finely tuned for both firm control in tense situations with large rounds and finesse when long range, precision shots are in order. * We took our favorite carbon ClymR stock and infused some class. The SKUHL stock features the same advanced carbon fiber structure with CNC machined bedding block, and a layer of flax fiber added into the composite layup. The painstaking process yields a beautiful blend with the performance of carbon, but the look and feel of a traditional wood stock. There’s simply nothing like it. * Carefully selected Swarovski optic enables shots from close to extended distances. With laser etched ballistic turrets and matched ammunition, the traditional close quarters big bore rifle becomes a 600 yard-capable precision instrument * Traditional dangerous game rifles are notorious for heavy recoil. We’re on a mission to change that! While the SKUHL Still packs a healthy punch, the Gunwerks radial brake provides significant recoil reduction. The brake, paired with optimal stock geometry and healthy recoil pad make the SKUHL much more enjoyable to shoot. A rifle that gets more practice, is almost always employed better when it counts * A first for Gunwerks, we’ve engraved buffalo and bear skull motif as an homage to the game it’s made to pursue. The action body, barrel shank, muzzle and bolt shroud all bear these designs * A unique battle-worn Tungsten Cerakote finish rounds out the design to mimic the look of your granddad’s trusty Rigby. But don’t be fooled. The stainless steel composition and baked ceramic finish render this tool and work of art practically impervious to the elements * DANGEROUSLY ACCURATE “Only accurate rifles are interesting.”  – Townsend Whelen While accuracy isn’t the hallmark of a dangerous game rifle. We set out to build a rifle optimized for close quarters, dangerous game hunting, but also meeting our precision standards – Mission accomplished”. Note this rifle stock will scratch the same as a wood stock. It is not scratch proof and will, with time, add more character to the rifle. Like during your first visit to the range when you stick it in a a vertical rifle holder. You need to get over it now!

SWAROVSKI Z8i: The Swarovski Z8i illuminated is the premier scope in the Swaro lineup. It is a 1-8 power scope NOT a 5-25×56 scope (which is what Alex wants). Let’s splain this. A scope with a 5x power (the lowest setting) will not not not allow you to find nor properly place crosshairs on any type of big game at 50 yards; the magnification is too much. On a bison you will only find brown but where on the animal is the brown? Butt or shoulders? Brown Bear you are screwed if it moves toward you. Moving Lion? You dead hoss. At 1x power the Swarovski has an illuminated circle and MOA dot inside the circle enabling you to use as a “red dot” with a massive FOV using the “both eyes open” technique aka Eotech. A brown bear or Moose or Elk at 100 yards requires NO magnification. Regardless you can crank this scope up to 8x power which insures hits at 600 yards on 10 inch plates. Hey, watch the video of Mike Davidson on the Gunwerks site doing same. If’n you aint shooting 1000 yards why do you have a 5-25 scope? Another pet peeve.. 

AMMUNITION: Five boxes (100 rounds) Gunwerks hand loaded 281 Grain PLF Precision Lead Free. These bullets are from the manufacturer “Hammer Bullets”. The 281 Grain is the “Hammer Hunter” and have been proven to be a serious one shot “Hammer” with bullet dependability at both near and far range. Note in the pictures are two boxes of Choice ammunition. These are mine not yours BUT they are shown so you know your rifle will feed Nosler Partition 300 Grain cartridges and 300 Grain Nosler AccuBond cartridges.. slick. Smooth. Note, however your rifle will not not feed “flat nose” bullets of which you will have no need..

DUOFOLD BIPOD: BT10-LW17 V8 Atlas Bipod with quick release ADM-170-S lever. This is a perfect match to this rifle; folds forward or back, full extension with cant/swivel, lockable.

COST/BUILD: The “lead time” for this rifle on the Gunwerks website is 180 days, six months plus. Too intricate and too time consuming to grab parts, stick together, and throw out the door. If you can get the rifle builder to allow you to build a .375 Ruger as described it is $13,401. See the itemization in the pictures. Atlas duofold BT Bipod with quick release $290. Ammunition 5 boxes premier Gunwerks $225 per box = $1125. Gunwerks hard case with cut-outs is a $350 add. Total if you can order one and get in mebbee 6 months is $15,166. Then add GB fees.. ours ships tomorrow. Az pays tax visa mc discover AMEX add 3.5%
