    Actually, Len buys and sells beautiful rifles. I don't think he's added gunsmithing to his many talents.

    He personally doesn't build them, he contracts with some really good smiths that do the work for him. The beauty of buying from Len is that he always has a few completed rifles in stock, and if he doesn't have it in stock it can be built in 6-10 weeks instead of 6-10 months.

    WCH, I havent put it on a scale yet but Im thinking its somewhere in the 12-13lb. range.

    Len had this rifle to me 8-9 weeks just like he said he would.

    Finally had time to get to the range this morning.
    These are my results:

    230gr. Hybrid Bergers lit by Retumbo. COAL 3.810

    86.0gr. - 2920,2941
    86.5gr. - 2929,2941
    87.0gr. - 2923,2951
    87.5gr. - 2990,2977
    88.0gr. - 3013,2988
    88.5gr. - 3008,3024
    89.0gr. - 3030,3003
    89.5gr. - 3054,3041
    90.0gr. - 3046,3043
    90.5gr. - 3082,3048

    No pressure signs observed.
    (This is in my rifle only. Not all rifles will have the same results.)
    I have loaded up another ladder at 91.0, 91.5 and 92.0 (4 rounds of each) and have seated the bullet out to a COAL 3.820.
    Stay tuned.
