Description

HILL COUNTRY RIFLES .308 WINCHESTER HILL COUNTRY RIFLES COMPACT HUNTER EVERY OPTION EVERY UPGRADE SHOOTS 1/3″ AT 100 YARDS OR 2″ GROUPS AT 600 YARDS WITH SWAROVSKI ILLUMINATED SCOPE, BIPOD, APA CHOTE BRAKE, TONS O’ AMMO read on! Note this rifle is tuned and blueprinted with a Swarovski scope which has a custom ballistic turret for this exact rifle. Target at 425 yards? Turn the elevation knob to 4.25! Simple. No hold over.

EMERGENCY ALEX DECLARATION: You are buying one rifle Alex. One rifle and scope and ammo and everything as described!

CALIBER .308 HUNTING: New hunting ammunition has punched the .308 further into arenas it has always occupied; all mid sized game along with Elk and Moose at reasonable distance. Manufacturers are now making ELD and VLD cartridges to enhance lethality at distance and bullets to move the cartridge even further into the Big Game arena and in addition specifically market their new ammunition in .308 for Elk, Moose, and Bear. Advantageous of the .308 vs the “new” 1200 and 1500 yard cartridges are less recoil, longer barrel life, enhanced operator accuracy, shorter barrels, ammunition availability. If you do not shoot over 500 yards this is the rifle for you; if you shoot over 600 yards to 1500 yards (or think you do anyway) this is NOT the rifle for you. Let’s try a little honesty today Alex! How many Moose and Elk are shot over 350 yards? Deer? Sheep, Goats? I have hunted all over the world and the fact is if you want to shoot game at 1000 yards you typically need to BACK UP. Move further away. Nuff said. 

AMMUNITION AVAILABILITY: This requirement should be high on your list for your firearms today.. cause there is no ammo out there right now! Covid hysteria, riot balogna, defund the police hoopla, Biden/Harris. The .308 however is available in every country in the world as 7.62 or .308 (and yes this shoots 7.62), every state, city, county.. and every third house on your street. Every outfitter in the world has 1/2 full boxes lying around from clients whom did not want the hassle of flying home with it. Every manufacture makes and markets it, and every distributor carries it. Even in today’s “no ammo” environment it is still at your local store. Ready for pick up!

RIFLE: Matt Bettersworth at Hill Country Rifles envisioned and had one of these (not shown) custom blueprinted hand built rifles completed. The minute we became aware of what he had done we snagged it (for moi) and ordered more custom units (which these are). Matt (co-owner of HCR) had Surgeon Rifles supply the bottom metal, used a Defiance Deviant action (fluted), threaded barrel is suppressor ready 5/8 x 24. Benchmark barrel, 20 inch, fluted with recessed target crown. Short, sweet, and to the point! Benchmark makes the best barrels in the world today re: accuracy. This rifle’s test target confirms it shoots 1/3 of an inch at 100 yards with FACTORY AMMUNITION. Shoots one inch groups at 300 yards. With FACTORY AMMUNITION! Rifle is set up with detachable box magazines from Accuracy International and are readily available everywhere. Stock is exceptional; integral cheekpad with thumbrest. Bottom of the stock is flat for use when lying prone or sitting and shooting off your Eberlestock pack.

OPTICS: Matt build this with common sense and intelligentsia. Swarovski Z6 Illuminated 1.7-10×42 with ballistic turret. We just lost Alex cause he has to have a 5-25 x 56 scope on his rifles to shoot 500 yards. Not only “not” but dumb. Again Hatchcock shot a PAVN General through the heart at 700 yards with a .308 decades ago using a straight 10x scope! This scope allows the end user to utilize the optic from 10 feet to 800 yards. That said the custom Swarovski Ballistic Turret is tuned and set to provide a precise dial up to 575 yards. Again; target at 400 yards? Turn the turret to “4”. target at 250 yards? Turn the dial to “2.5”. 

AMMUNITION #1: Nine boxes of Nosler Trophy Grade 150 grain AccuBond. You get one shy of a full case since your rifle has been zeroed, chronographed, broken in. 180 rounds premier AccuBond Trophy Grade smackdown. At 500 yards we are still talking over 1200 ft lbs of hammer.

AMMUNITION#2: Four boxes of  180 grain Federal POWER SHOK JSP Jacketed Soft Point. This 180 Grain bullet is the same bullet in the .300 Win Mag and will hammer a Grizzly and monster game. Specifically designed for deep terminal penetration on all Monsters. “Federal Power-Shok 308 ammo is the perfect choice for hunting in the woods and clearings. Power-Shok provides consistent and proven performance; 180 grain weight and a jacketed soft point you can comfortably hunt any large-game with ease.

AMMUNITION#3: Whatever you want; rifle shoots all .308 and or 7.62 ammunition. 

APA CHODE BRAKE:  Those of you whom know us know we would put a compensator on a .22 short AND have it ported if we could! We are all about extinguishing recoil which enables us to maintain a clear sight picture and expend follow up rounds as needed. Although this .308 has minimal recoil and Matt felt recoil was low as is we added an APA CHODE muzzle brake which has a timing nut. You do not need a smith to install; takes seconds to screw on, align, and or screw off and put a suppressor on. APA originally developed this brake for competition shooters whom had extra long 28 or 30 inch barrels and wanted to eliminate recoil but not add another 3 inches to their barrels; we do not want to add 3 inches to this barrel either but again wish to further mitigate recoil. Voila! Sides that it looks badass!

BT INDUSTRIES BIPOD: BT Industries Atlas duofold bipod. Underbelly has a Seekins Precision picatinny rail for said pod. Low profile two screw clamp assembly. Selected for SOCOM MK14 MOD 2. NSN 1005-01-601-000.  Height range is 4.5 to 9.4 inches, 30 degree pre-loaded pan and cant, 5 leg positions.

HOGUE LIMITED CASE: Hogue did a limited run of super thick super padded fitted cases which fit these perfectly. Softest case on the interior you have ever felt; some kind of “velour”. Outside is hard ass canvas. Accessory pockets, steel loops, YKK dual zippers. Bout 3 1/2 inches thick. 

COST/BUILD: Invoice WITHOUT OPTICS is in the pictures. $7,556. That is with no ammo, no optics, no bipod, no brake, and no case. Rifle only in a Plano. You have to buy a Swarovski Z6i illuminated model 69237 which runs $2821. Then ship the scope to Hill Country for mounting and zero. Then HCR needs to contact Swarovski and get a custom turret for this rifle (included on their invoice). Order up an APA CHODE brake and install $200, BT bipod duofold $225. Limited exclusive run Hogue soft case $214. Full case of premier Nosler Trophy Grade 150 Grain AccuBond is $75 per box out of stock everywhere total 10 boxes 200 rounds $750. Yes HCR used one of your boxes. You get nine and still pay for 10. Federal 180 Grain Grizzly smasher is $52 per box = $208. Total to order one, put 1/2 down, and wait 10 to 14 months would run you $11,974. Then add GB fees.. Az pays tax visa mc discover AMEX add 3.5%
