I want to take a moment to tell everyone about the newest addition to the gun family. I contacted Tommy Shurley back in May about building a 338 lapua improved for me and I think we ended up talking for about an hour about guns and hunting and family. Tommy is a wonderful person to deal with and I hope to deal with him again in the near future. I probably called him about 100 times during the course of the build asking different questions and getting updates and he either answered the phone when I called or called me back in very short order. I really couldn't have asked him to be any more available to me. I haven't had a chance to shoot this one yet as I've been busy and it seems to constantly be windy here. If it shoots as good as I think it looks it should be one-holer. I will update on how it shoots when I get a chance. Here are the specs on it:
Defiance Long action with 30moa rail
Krieger MTU 1-10 29"
Jewell set at 1.5 lbs
McMillan A-5 70% Olive, 15% black, 15% medium tan
4-port magnum muscle brake
Nightforce 8-32x56 NP-R1 with ZS supplied by Bob Beck
