--LH STILLER TAC 338--Benchmark--Manners--I love it!!!

I just picked up my 338 Lapua from Benchmark barrels today and I have to say they did an absolute top notch Job. Very excited about it. I am not sure if I am going to keep it yet but I do like it.
---SPECS---
-Left handed Stiller Tac 338 Action with 20 MOA pic. Rail
-Benchmark Barrel. 1.350 Thick at recoil lug, Contour called the Light Idaho, not so light but has a very good feel to it.
30 inches- 1 and 9.5 twist, thoated for the 300 grainers
-4 port Center Shot rifles muscle brake
-Manners T5 Stock with 3 color camo with two studs up front and one rear.
-Seekins 338 Lapua Bottom metal to utilize the long 300 grain bullets
-Rifle Basix var. Trigger set at 2.0 pounds
On top of the rifle is a USO 3.2-17X44 TPAL set in a set of 34mm rings.
Benchmark is making some really high quality rifles so I am excited to put them in the same hole.
What do you think??????
I am not an expert with a camera so please forgive the bad pictures

JC,

Very nice rifle. Curious as to why you said you don't know if you will keep it. You sound pretty excited about it.

If it didn't have the bolt on the wrong side it would be darn near perfect! The other part holding it back from perfection is it ain't mine! Very nice piece. I am practically giddy in anticipation of the range report! I say keep it.
