Be sure to post a picture when you get it done.

    Yeah I am anxious to have all the pieces put together. Waiting patiently knowing this all takes time. It will be well worth the wait! My next step is to order a scope.

    Re: My 6.5 x 284 Build

    I just got mine this week. I am running a sendero barrel, 20 moa base, and a NF 5.5x22x56. It's a tight fit, but clears fine. I do not regret buying that scope! I went with a 27" tube. I also went with the McM stock, sniper fill.
    I'll weigh it in the morning, buts it's heavy as hell. Just like I wanted it.

    I'm hoping to come in between 12-14lbs.

    Better re-think your barrel and stock choice then. That's where I think most of my weight is. The rest is probably marginal.

    I should add that I did have my small bipod and stock pack on when weighed. Don't think that makes a huge difference, but..
