My new Long Range toy!

Went and picked it up yesterday and went out and did some breaking in of the barrel today. Its not much to look at but it is looking like it is going to perform quite well. Will be shooting for groups tomorrow and will post some pics of that.

Stiller TAC338 action w/20 MOA base (338 Lapua Magnum single shot)
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
Nightforce 5.5-22x50 HS/ZS

Re: My new Long Range toy!

That is a very nice looking LR hammer. I love it.

Oh, funny story... You know the problem you had picking it up yesterday? Well I topped that big time this afternoon. I went to pick up a 338 edge I had shipped in to me. Got to the gun shop, went to cut the heavy ties holding the case together. Slipped with the knife and off to the ER we went. 4 internal stitches to pull my knuckle casing back together and 8 external stitches to close the gaping hole in my left hand.

Worst part is I still have not seen the rifle and have to go back and get it tomorrow.

Some days a guy just can't win..

Jeff

Jeff, I've decided you're a little accident prone in the last year, maybe we should call you grace. Korhil78, I don't know what you're talking about by "not much to look at", that's a damn nice looking stick!
