Just my luck!

Saw the confirmation that UPS delivered my custom 338 Lapua magnum to my local FFL holder (very small gun shop). I was all excited while I was driving over there to pick it up. I get there and a little note says closed today, open Tuesday at 9 am. LOL..talk about someone punching you in the gut! Oh well.. I will go pick it up tomorrow and post some pics. The anticipation is driving me crazy considering I should have my hands all over that gun already!

Stiller TAC338 action w/20 MOA base
McMillan A3
Jewell trigger
Hart 26" rem varmint contour 1:10 twist ( using 300 gr OTM)
CSR 4 port muscle brake
Badger 50 max rings

Will be using it for both steel and animals.

I will post pics tomorrow but its nothing fancy to look at. Stainless barrel and plain Jane black stock. I just love all the parts I used.

Haha..we must share the same luck.

With my luck, I will take it out to shoot it on the first day and when I pull the trigger, the bullet will get stuck in the rifling and the barrel will fall off.
