    Thanks for the info guys. That is an awesome looking setup. I like the blued action and stainless barrel.

    I agree with all the guys who like the blued action & the SS barrel- they look great, I have that set up on a HEAVY 6-284 with a Rem 700 long & SS Krieger Finished at 28". Plus I just put a heavy 28" Shilen Select Match SS on my .338 Ultra with a McRee precision style break. I did however cera-kote the barreled action in OD green with a coyote tan McRee precision stock; to say the least the rig shoots even better than it looks! If you don't plan to cera-kote, the SS on Blue offers eye catching contrast that is also economical.

    Ok going to junk the XCR stock and can't decide what to replace it with. I would love to get a laminated stock for accuracy and looks. But I want the rifle to be light weight for hunting. Any opinions on what i should do and go with.

    I got really lucky and found a NIB LSS stock. I had the barrel channel opened up to accommodate
    the Hart #5 barrel as well as the recoil lug for the Tubb lug. You might try looking for a LSS stock and also look at Byods.

    FYI, the 280 AI pictured above weighs in at 9 lbs even.
