Re: Montana 2006 Success

It weighs 13.5lbs ready to go with bipod. I usually carry it in my Eberlestock pack, so it is not to bad. I wanted to be able to watch the bullet hit through the scope, and usually you can. It just torque's a little, buy you can still see the animal or target after the shot. I was going to put a brake on it, but it is really not needed. I am going to build another one that is lighter that might have a brake, just have not decided yet.

    alg....

    All of the shots were high shoulder except for the first that drifted to just in front of the shoulder.

    Jimm,
    It was a blast [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] I couldn't be happier with the 243AI.....If I had to do it again, I would probably build it the same way. I will probably end up using my 7mmAM for elk (when it is finished), and the 243AI for everything else. It was great having Dad along. I try to take him somewhere each year to do some hunting. We usually just end up in Montana. Since he built the rifle, I am sure he was very pleased to see the results. He is becoming hooked on this long range stuff also.
