Nice looking rig, as I am also a fan of "all business" hunting rifles.

Let us know for sure how she shoots!

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

Finally got my ammo and range time. They sent me power level 2 shells and I had to wait another week or so before I found some decent shells. Store 30 miles away had 180 grain core lok for 50u bucks which is a deal around here. I put her in a choate tactical stock to lighten it up...and it is just how I want it. She shoots great. I changed up my hold on this 36 shot group , the two shots I had it tucked tight in shoulder[IMG][/IMG] went thru the same hole. Here is the 100 yd target....Im happy

Re: My "Long Ranger" build

How's the Hawke SW holding up? Just curious. Can you give us a quick review on quality of the scope? Clicks, box test?
