I have not shot her yet but the smith said she shot "ok". Not really sure what that meant as he did not bring the target back with him. Gonna break the barrel in with some Rem corlokt 140 gr for now and then I will start my reloading.... Thinking 180 grains ober RL 33 or maybe 25 or retumbo.... I have that powder... I was thinking with the long barrel, the 33 may just do the trick... ANyone try it yet???
Let me know if you have any ideas... Ohhh also, took off the cheek piece.... Got in the way of the bolt coming out... I think it is a manners stock....
ok cant upload the photos... I will try photo bucket
Mario, I'm on vacation now, but a little " birdie " told me of a BADASS STW was on the " site ", so I borrowed my nieces iPad to check it out. And YUP, he was / is right. That thing is giving me wood ' bro. Wow, nice job, and yeah, forget all that stupid **** about what " some " people say about Winchester actions. I love em, and wouldn't hesitate to build another rifle on one. I have a few customs built on whinny actions, and they are as good or better then one built on a remy action. Nuff said! IMHO.
Enjoy the toy!! ( yeah, like , your not going to enjoy that machine )
