Don't know yet.

I'm still lapping lugs, but I'm getting closer.

Won't know until I get this Brux barrel chambered and measured.

    You going to use Lapua brass? If so measured rounds will be about .313 unturned. I went with a .310 bushing. And have you decided what barrel length?

    My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    So far I've got Winny brass. Maybe Lapua next.

    Thinking about using a 24 inch barrel.

    Still looking for a light weight stock for hunting.

    I was going to go with a 24" barrel but this is going to by my midweight long range rig so i decided on 26" (with the help of vegas steve) for a little more velocity to reach out on a antelope at 1k and coyote waaay out there.

    For me, this will be my light weight hunter.

    The Brux is a #3...probably finish at 24".

    Hoping for 6 1/2 lbs plus scope.

    Getting tired of those featherweight Magnums trying to
    give me a "scope eye".

    I'll need to open the box to see what twist the Brux is.

    Probably 1-9

    Put a #4 at 26" on my 7 saum. Kinda a 284 +P.

    Do you have your barrel yet?
