That's a beauty for sure. A good friend of mine is an STW man. He has a couple nice mule deer and elk to it's credit. Again nice rig .

Re: Build finally finished first shots fired today

Update... Finally got do do some long range shooting today. I was only able to shoot out to 600 yds. Didnt get any pics of the targets but at 600 i put 3 shots into 4 inches. Elevation was perfect. I am well pleased with the CDS leupold 400,500, and 600 yds the turret worked very well. I am going to try and shoot at 700-1000 this coming week.

Re: Build finally finished first shots fired today

Here are the targets at 600, 700, and 800. I shot 1 shot at each range starting at 600 and ending at 900. I fine tuned turret then shot 1 shot at 7,8, and 900. I let the barrel cool and repeated. I was interested to see how the rifle grouped dialing the turret up and down between shots. I then shot a three shot at 600 just to see how it did. The wind had started to pic up so i didnt shoot groups at the other ranges. i was just off the paper at 900 but the two bullet holes were a little over 3 inches apart and elevation was perfect.
