New 7mm Dakota that Len Built

I just recieved my new 7MM Dakota from Len on monday. So far it has been every thing I had hoped for. After shooting 13 rounds through it cleaning between each round. I shot a 3 shot group that measured .412". Using Berger 180 g Hunting VLD's, 73 g H-1000 and 3.330 OAL. These were rounds I made up before I recieved the Rifle So I haven't even started to play with Bullet seating depth or different powder charges.
Details of the Rifle - Broughton Barrel, Phoenix Action, Jewell Trigger, Side port Muzzle break (Not sure who made it) OD green Cerekote and Manners T-2 stock with 5 color custom camo. Also Had Len Mount a Huskemaw Scope. Have not had to touch the scope it is exactly 1/2 inch high at 100 yds. I Have Leupold's and Swarovski's on my other Rifles and I am very happy with the clarity and functionality of the Huskemaw. I believe it to be every bit as good as my Leupolds. Not as crisp as my Swarovski. Soon as I get the Barrel broke in I will be working on getting my true BC's to send in for my RFBC Turret. I have picture but could not figure out how to get them in. I will send them to Len.
Len,
Thanks for the great shooting Rifle and this web site were I have learned a great deal about Long Range Hunting and shooting.

You can not tell us about your rifle unless you show some pictures too.
