Nope. I just like the load development and data collection. I make time for that. But I take shortcuts too. I do the BDC turret deal instead of data tables, much less ranging and doping the mils out in my head like my snipers did in the service. I just am not that good.
Next gun though, you may want to have built by a gunsmith piece by piece, with better components and you will see that it will probably come out a bit cheaper, and a tighter shooter. I know, that takes time, and research, but it is food for thought. Your time is probably worth more than mine. ;)
You have a helluva a rifle, have fun with it! Wish I had the shooting range out my back porch!
