257 stw project home at last

picked up my stw yesterday, got home and found the rings for it were not tapped so I had to rob from my next project until I get my replacement rings and bases. Rifle is a Rem 700 trued action, shilen select match #5 contour 1-10 twist at 28.75 in. Boyd's stock pillar, glass bedded, Tubb ss oversize recoil lug, rem trigger set at 2 lbs. Scope for the rifle is a Burris fullfield II 4.5x 14.
Fired her off yesterday love the boom smack sound when she goes off. Rifle don't recoil no more than a 22-250. Hope to have some results this weekend on just how well she shoots.

Kirby will be shooting 100 bt for right now, I am waiting on some 100 and 125's from Richard. I have the 130's now just don't want to waste them with barrel break in and all. I have plenty of bullets to mess with just have to have time and weather that is not around 98 degrees and humid as all get out.
