I just got one. Didn't need one but got one anyway. Know what I mean?-----SS
"Need" is a subjective term anyways.

Did you order it, or do you have it in hand?

As soon as I saw the 28 Nosler, you were the first person I thought of. Somehow I thought you might pick one up.

Congrats on the new addition to the family. I hope you write up a nice report on how it performs.

c) a nice man in Oregon lapped the lugs for me.....for a small----ish fee.
d) No pics yet....many to come.

It's official. I'm a rifle junkie.-----SS

Boys and their toys. I saw one of these on the wall at a Rocky Mountain Discount Sports in Gillette, Wyoming last week. I think the price tag was $1,500 or somewhere thereabouts.

Here you go:

Nosler M48
28 Nosler
26" match grade SS hand lapped barrel. #4 contour.
Proprietary action looks like a Howa 1500 to me.
Trigger set at 2.8 lbs with just a touch of creep that. I will fix.
Fiberglass stock is bedded and floated.
Warne rings and bases
Leupold VX III LR 4.5-14.
Rifle weighs 7.5 lbs without scope.

Started barrel break in using Nosler factory ammo with 160 Accubond bullets.
MV for first ten shots was 3302-3325 FPS
Felt recoil was very mild, surprisingly.
10 shot group was 1" cleaning between shots.
Bore was very smooth and cleaned easily.

More fun than a guy should have on a Wednesday.-------SS

That is one great looking rifle - looks like it'll be a lot of fun! The 28 Nosler sounds like a great round... I enjoy my 7RM, but I wouldn't mind messing around with something different later on down the road. I'm looking forward to more range reports from you!

SS now that you have had several .284 cal rifles, is the .280 AI still your favorite. I'm getting bored with my 300wm, not to mention tired of having my fillings rattled every time i touch one off. Been leaning towards the .280AI as the replacement.
