Nice dirt bath video. I have a Barnard inbound as we speak, and look forward to shooting it.

Re: First shots from the Barnard 338 Lapua

I am not using the V Block system. I would if I were running any of the composite stocks but I am running an aluminum modular stock from McRees Precision. So I have the "block" built as a complete unit of the center section of the stock. I just shipped him my P-Chey action a couple days ago so he could make sure his program for machining matched the exact dimensions of the action.

Thanks

Very nice rifle. Good work using the NZ action. What barrel are you using?

Good work, I have a couple of True Flite barrels, a 6mm and a 7mm. Both sitting at my gunsmiths place awaiting assembly. Looks as though your initial testing is showing good results using the True Flite. Can't wait for my rifles to be done...
