    Sweet...enough said. Another idea along the lighter weight line would be something like a 284 win in an abs carbon 26" barrel. Use a little lighter weight scope like a leupold or zeiss and its the perfect mountian setup. I don't got $4800 but I do got an idea. Or a 338 norma in a 26" would be cool too. Just an idea. Reminds me of a tube gun.

    Shawn,

    I have a couple more questions for you:

    1. How heavy is the barrel? Is it a 5.5 sporter or a #6?
    2. What brand of barrel are you using?
    3. Does it have a jewel trigger in it?
    4. Because of the design, would it be feasible to have a 32" barrel?

    Thanks!

    Jeff,


    We are using Hart 5.5 conture barrels with a long shank fluted. I have talked to them about 32" barrels, that is up in the air right now. 32" with a +P would go 3000 fps without too much trouble still using H1000.

    Way to think outside the box a little Shawn! Would certainly be easier to pack that around when riding one's dirt bike

    Just sent my check in the mail for one of these.

    1. Shawn, you didn't mention it but I assume that there will be either a 20 MOA or 40 MOA rail that is part of the BAT Action?
    2. I've seen pictures with some guns having two sets of NF Rings on the scopes. Is this a requirement due to the heavy recoil or is one set of rings sufficient?

    Jeff
