    I had JB at Accuflite build me a 6.5x47 Lapua Pistol. This "Little Thumper" can shoot better than some other full rifle customs I own. I especially wanted this caliber for deer sized game for PA hunting. This Pistol will shoot 155 Grain Lapua Mega hunting bullets in one regged hole at 100 yards.

    pciriello,
    Welcome to the forum. I know JB a little. How about posting a picture of this custom "Little Thumper".
    Glad to have you on board.

    West Virginia here.

    Have you shot anything with it besides paper?
    I'd be interested in seeing a pic and comparing load data.
    Here is my Ultra Light Arms with a 17" Douglas barrel in 6.5x47 Lapua.

    Howdy, resurrecting an old thread. I'm currently looking at a similar gun at an auction. Can you tell me, a. how does the 6.5 fit in the receiver? do you have to angle insert the round? Free ejection? and how much bolt face rim is left after opening it up to .473. Interested why you went with L461 and not an L579...?

    Thank,

    Gary
