    Welcome to LRH, Brian. Nice specs & a good lookin' rig. So give us some info on how she shoots. Any pet loads? Bullets used and actual drop vs. ballistic tables, etc.

    I have only done a test firing at this point.
    Once the glass arrives I will work out a load and report back.
    My first thought is to build a load around the Berger 300 gr Match Hybrid OTM Tactical bullet.
    I will probably start at 90g of Retumbo.

    I don't need one. But that is just me.
    The weight ( of both the gun and the operator) helps a lot.
