I’m thinking very seriously about getting one of these rifles in 30.06 to serve as a light weight hunting rifle. Has anyone tried a Hell’s Canyon Speed rifle?

I ended up purchasing this rifle in 270 Win. It’s definately accurate. I purchased one box of Federal ammo just so I could zero it and then have brass for my hand loads. It shot .75” 3 shot group with the factory ammo. I then loaded a 130 Barnes TTSX over 53 grains of Reloader 17 and got 5/8” 3 shot group at 100 yards. Velocity was 3080.

The thread pitch on the muzzle is M13 x .75 so I had to order an adapter so I can use my 5/8 x 24 Omega can.

I’ll try to post pictures soon. All in all a very nice mountain style hunting rifle.
