Nice rig I have to build me a savage one of these days.

I have been using a super sniper for the last 9 months and I love it. If they made a variable I would buy one.

You do good work with those hands. Inexpensive sure doesn't mean cheap!

You'll like the SS too. I have a 10X and 16X both are sweet for these old eyes.

I set the parallax at 400 (about) and have no parallax from 300 to 1200. I suppose that's not good for some but works well for me.

Have fun shooting that thing. I'm onto the same kind of a project where I can practice long range and not have to use a shovel for the powder.;)
I may be the slowest guy on the mountain . . . . but . . . . I'm on the mountain!

thanks for the kind words everyone . kb its still a 308 its basically a factory rifle except the stock ill get to the range in about a week .ill shoot it awhile and see i what i make her do then if im not happy ill do a barrel swap

as far as the SS to my eyes there pretty good for the money there suppose to come out with a variable pretty soon

i wanted to do and adjustable cheek and butt only i ran out of time im going black bear hunting in a month and need the time to find a good load for it when i get back ill put the adjustable hardware on her

i like the satisfaction of putting together something with my hands its half the fun if i was younger i would think about being smith anyway thanks again
