    Wow, Looks great. Where did you get that cool muzzle brake? How well does it work (the MB)?
    For lazy folks, I embedded the pic's here.

    B1g_Bore,

    The muzzle brake was built by Shawn Carlock of Defensive Edge. Im not sure how well the brake works as I have not had a chance to shoot this rifle yet, when I do I will let you know.

    Thanks,

    I am just happy you got the thing after the circle jerk-a-thon you went around with UPS.

    Thank you all for your kind comments. I finally got out to the range today and I must say Shawn builds one awesome rifle. The rifle worked flawlessly and the groups were good; I was able to consistantly print 2.0" groups at 300 yards. Next time I will attempt much further distances, I was just getting comfortable with it today.
    The load I used was Rem. brass, CCI-250 Mag primers, 92-grains H-1000, and 300-grain SMK.

    One other thing to comment on is the recoil with Shawn's brake and the 14 lb. weight of the rifle it "kicks" very little, I would say the "kick" is less than my sporter 30-06. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

    That's great!

    I would have to agree with your observations on the recoil. My EDGE feel like slightly more than a .308 but a lot less than .30-06.
