TMR,

Nice rifle! May I ask whether the NF is a 50 or 56 mm and what height/brand rings you are using?

Thanks a bunch!

    my rifle built by kirby,


    shots 8,9,and 10 during the fireform process


    Being a novice to this LR hunting I just finished my second deer season with my 7mm AM, in those 2 years the rifle has taken deer at
    first year
    375 yds (headshot)
    450 yds,
    475 yds
    532 yds
    585 yds
    second year
    503 yds
    565 yds
    611 yds
    722 yds
    822 yds
    Ditto SS7mm's comments on kirby and his services before, during, and after the build, that is the main thing that convinced me to get kirby to build my rifle, he took alot of time explaining everything about his calibers and his rifles even before I had decided what I wanted.
    You won't find a better smith or a nicer guy to deal with!

    Mine, like Mark Hamptons is a center-grip XP-100.
    mine is chambered in 7mm Dakota. There is a detailed article about in last Summer's edition of Dakota Magazine that showed the capability of Kirby's work. First animal taken was a cow elk @ 666 yards, then a couple of days later a doe muley @ 597 , then a month or two later a whitetail buck at 547 yards.

    1st shot connection (no sighters/cold bore) @ 600 yards from the prone position. Had just traveled from Ks to East of Pueblo, CO where my long-time hunting buddy lives. wanted to check my zeros. I had done most of my practice @ 600 yards so that is where I started.



    Next are some pics from the range just North of Hutchinson, KS @ 600 yards.

    DWK,

    The NF is a 50mm and the rings are NF lows (.885") if I remember correctly.
