    As a custom gun builder I get the opportunity to build some very special rifles and this rifle is extra special to me and my shop.
    45/70 is a veteran and life long master shooter who has helped hundreds of people in the muzzleloader community and untold youth to experience muzzleloading.
    And I am one of these individuals who was helped greatly by 45/70 and is a true friend.

    This rifle was purpose built for blackpowder and heavy lead or blackhorn and high b.c. copper jacket bullets . Bullet to bore.

    45/70 gave me the freedom to build the absolutely best rig i could build at Bestill Creations and this rifle is top notch.

    I would gladly compete with this rifle at any match in the country.

    Details
    Remington 700 sa chromoly action with bolt timing modifications, ptg swept threaded handle, badger knob, custom slotted boltface for lrmp module, gretan single shot follower, cerakote sniper black finish, Bedded Murphy stainless picatinny rail with sniper black cerakote finish, trigger tech special trigger 20 oz pull, ptg. 250 lug,Rock creek 450/458 custom contour 1-17 twist 8 groove barrel polished finish,Recessed target crown, Asg gen2 lrmp breech plug ,lrmp modules ,bell Carlson M40 stock, bedded and floated, 30mm burris xtr signature zee rings ,Vortex HST 6-24×50 scope.
    Gun is setup to run with ramrod on gun for hunting or without for competition shooting.

    This rig will shoot with any blackpowder or blackhorn gun in the country.

    Thanks Bob 45/70

    I was able to see the gun being built in person last weekend . Jeff went the extra mile to make everything perfect . I can’t wait to see what it will do . With the 17 twist Rock Creek 8 groove cut rifle barrel it should shoot heavy lead or the heavier copper jacketed bullets equally well . I’m sure it will be a real shooter . Heaven only knows what Bob will do with a gun that he does not have to work on ! Congratulations Bob .
