The Rimrock BRLXD
2016 has been an exciting year of development at Borden Rifles. The introduction of the Borden Rimrock BRMXD action in January was a success and the demand for that action also created a demand for a longer version of the larger diameter action. We are now producing the Rimrock BRLXD version of our BRL action. It is 1.470 in diameter. It is available with 30-06 and standard magnum boltfaces. It is available RBRP; RBLP, RBLPRE (for 284 and 30-06 length cartridges); RBLPBE (for up to 284 Win length cases). We are also offering the LH versions of the same combos.
Getting the right fit in an action for mid length cartridges has been a challenge for years. Many cartridges like the 257 Roberts, 6.5×55 Mauser, 6MM Remington, 284 Win, 6.5×284 Win and the WSM and RSAUM cartridges have been put in the standard short action which restricts overall length of the cartridge and effects its efficiency. Those same cartridges when done in standard long action result in excess space in the magazine well. For that reason we have introduced the Ridgeline series of actions which feature an opening of 3.2 inches in the magazine box. These images show the three lengths of action: Alpine Magnum, Ridgeline and Timberline Magnum. McMillan will be inletting stock patterns that accept either Short or Long Remington actions for the Borden Ridgeline.
The Ridgeline is offered as repeater or Single shot and can be bought as a Titanium version as well. We have “Standard” mag boxes as well as WSM/RSAUM mag boxes available for them. Also, the Obendorf style drop floorplate trigger guard systems are expected to be here soon.
