New Rig From Kirby

My long wait is over for my very first custom rifle. Kirby built me a .338RUM for all my future hunting adventures. I can't wait to get it out later this week to shoot it for my first time.

Kirby's testing had a 3 shot group at 3" around 800yds. I only hope to be that accurate. I'll get my chance to learn in 2 weeks when I'm at Shawn's class.

28" Lilja barrel
Borden Timberline Receiver
McMillan HTG Stock
Jewell Trigger
APS Painkiller break
Nightforce 3.5 15-50 NXS scope, NPR-1

Now I get to test all that I have read and learned about LRH. Scary but fun all at the same time.

    What bottom metal and barrel contour do you have? Do you know how much the total rig weighs?

    Congratulations on a great looking gun.

    I guess you'll be happy with it if all you want is accuracy, looks and the best workmanship you could get in a long range rig.

    Kirby builds the best, now just get out and shoot it and enjoy.

    Hey DB,
    The rig weights 11lbs with bi-pod. Barrel is #7 conture SS, 1-10 twist and I'm not sure by what you mean bottom metal.

    Nice looking rifle, but your bipod is on backwards.

    Dbhunter,

    I believe I misspoke earlier, I was thinking of another rifle I built at that same time. I believe this one has the steel ADL trigger guard with internal mag box.
