New Custom Encore 6.5X47 Lapua

Custom shop Battling bucks Frame
Trigger job by Stratton custom (awesome job)
Match Grade Machine 28" .290 (neck turn) 6.5X47 Lapua
100 click adjustable Harmonic Balancer / Break (MGM Awesome job)
Hanger Bar by Stratton custom (awesome job)
Red splatter Leupould VXL 6.5X20X56 Long Range Varmint Hunter Reticule

Barrel was cut with my reamer from my Bench gun so I can shoot my BR custom ammo in a hunting weight rifle.

Notice the great fit of the VXL scope to the barrel!

And now, for the GUN PORN.....

The 80's called, they want thier scope back. Just kidding. Nice gun. Probably the most versatile gun system on the planet.

You are BAD! Actually, I didn't order the scope that way, got in on EBAY for about 450 bucks off. Can you believe they charge an EXTRA 110 bucks for the paint job. It's grown on me, I've had the scope about 6 months.

That scope is definitely a low rider. Don't blame you for picking it up at a discount, I would have too. We need to know how it shoots!

I would have snagged it also. It fits your gun like a glove.
