Re: my first build

Nice work mate. It does look like it is going to shoot real good.
I did notice that you have your bi-pod down on the lowest setting . If it is a model with springs it will jump about . I find mine is more accurate locked into the firts notch and not bouncing on the springs.
Also I found that the swivel mounting system on a bi-pod was a slight source of accuracy loss as it can flex about with use and loosen the thumb screw. Might not happen to you but it did to me quite often .

Nice paint job on the scope. Who painted it?

It's a Leupold 6.5-20x56 VX3L Varmint Extreme scope. They come painted like that from the factory.
