The Rampro Pistol Project-Working with ...

The Rampro Pistol Project-Working with John Illum A couple of years ago I called John Illum of Rampro about building the ultimate long-range pistol. It just so happens that John was a big time long-range pistol shooter.
...
Well Illum listened to me and came up with a gun that performs just the way I wanted. Illum suggested a rear grip stock of his own design.
...
John Illum's Rampro actions are chrome-moly steel. Commonly you'd see them blued, but I had him put a brushed nickel finish on the action and rings. From a few feet away it looks like stainless. The trigger is Illum's own design set at 8 ounces, and there's no creep that I can detect. The action has Remington barrel threads and will accept Remington type triggers. One neat thing is that the action was milled with an integral recoil lug (much like the current Surgeon Action). And the bolt is milled all in one piece-no soldered-on handles. My only gripe with this bolt handle is that it could be a tad longer, but it still is manageable for a single-shot. You'll also note how slick and streamlined the scope rings are. Illum made those as well. His rings mount to the action via two screws from the inside of the ring, a very elegant set-up for sure. (I currently have a 6.5-20×40 Nikon scope on this gun. If I had to do this project over again the only thing I would change would be installing a 30mm scope because I like 'em!). The barrel is a PacNor Super-Match heavy taper with flutes milled by John Illum, who did all the gunsmithing on this pistol. Twist rate is 1 in 12 inches, with an 11° crown, polished to a mirror finish. The barrel was bead-blasted on the exterior to cut glare. I had Illum cut a 20 PPC minimum-spec chamber, with a .237 neck. That way I don't have to turn necks on the Lapua Brass (220 Russian necked down to .204). This is a varmint gun-there's no need for turned necks. [Editor's Note: Rampro is no longer in business. However, John tells us "I haven't had any problems with the action so far.
