My New Rig

This is my first ever home built rig. Nothing to major started out with my savage 300 wsm and wasn't shooting very good groups the way it was so I bought a benchmark barrel and all the tools to do the job myself. I then called out to stockade and had him make me the stock. Got it all assembled and went and did some load development at the range a few times. So far it seems to like 210 gr Bergers over 61gr of RL-19 going just shy of 2800 fps getting .648 in groups at 100yds,around 1.5 in at 200yds, and stays In that 3/4 MOA past that although i havent been able to test beyond 500 yet. I'd really like to get that down a little tighter but with limited time before season I will make do to that 500yds I have practiced to. It is a little heavy at 13.2 lbs but not gonna be a mountain gun mostly a deer and antelope gun to 800 or so yds someday when I can get the load tuned for it.

Good deal. Looks decent! I like that you bolted it together yourself.

Re: My New Rig

Good lookin rig! I like that stock.

Can you give me some more info on the buttstock shellholder/pouch thing...I'd like to get a couple of them in ACU Digital. But don't know who makes them of the technical name, so I can't ever find any for sale.
