Thanks Guys! I took those pics in East MT. where we stopped to bust some rocks. It is truely beautiful country and that ridge was a great place to shoot from. Shot some video of us wacking about a 20" square rock right at 1000. There were 3 of us all shooting Longshot Precision rifles. My Lapua and 2 Edges. I will link it here when my son gets it on you-tube.

TK, Yes, 2100 is a long way for a guy from southern Iowa and now Missouri.

Bravo 4, I just signed up to a hunting lease on 1200 acres for this year. My first trip there I was busting milk jugs @ 500 with my 30-378 and 210 Bergers. I also ranged a place to 1000 so no dust will be building on this rifle. I am a little worried about my other standard hunting rifles though. Might be time to off a few and think about another build.. Maybe when I get my property sold here on Lake of the Ozarks and move to Montana I will need a 375?? I looked at a few properties while I was out there

On top is a custom milled and fitted Near base so I have full use of all the adjustment in the Night Force NXS. NF rings. McMillan A-5 stock and Harris bi-pod. Needles to say, I am pumped! I am very pleased and this rifle has made me realize that the right equipment plays a huge part in successful hits way out there.


Nice rig. Looks like you found a good gunsmith in Montana that will build it the way you want it.;)
