I can't stop picking it up! It's damn near perfect in so many ways. I set up my " dummy " round earlier, and the base of the bullet, stops right at the base of the neck, when jammed into the rifling. Now I need to load up some break in rounds, and fire away. ( shoot and clean, that is, you know the drill). All I need to do now is adjust the trigger.
PS, I'm STILL drooling.
I'm actually thinking of building a duplicate in STW. HMMMMMMM!

Looks like I've made it into a pretty good pipe afterall.....

I've had more than a few rounds that wouldn't settle down at 100 and 200 yards but you get it out past 3-400 it tightens up and really does well. My long range 300 WSM load for example shoots 1.4" at 100 yds, but goes to 0.75" at 300 and at 700 yards shoots 2.5". All 5 shot groups, and if I do my job driving the bus.

Ben, Thanks for the info on Leupy, I'll take note. Bob, I love that win 70 action. They feel slick, have the 2003 7wsm model, sweet. There's really more than 1 decent action out there, sometimes we get carried away with rem this and only.

Bob,

That's a great looking rifle! Glad it worked out. She'll be a great carry rifle for sure.

Dan
