I agree with what was said about Duracoat. I have used it and it is OK. I like Brownells Gunkote better. I am currently having three rifles finished in Cerakote. I suspect I will like that even more than I like Gunkote. Of course, that's all academic for as long as you are happy with the stainless look!
I hope you will share your results when you start putting rounds downrange. I have a Bartlein barrel on order for my .300 WM. It will be my first Bartlein barrel and I am looking forward to putting it through its paces.
I am a fan of the Model 70 and similar actions. Thanks for posting pics!
It's still a 280 Rem. I seriously thought about going the AI route, but I decided to keep it simple and stay with the 280 Rem. Some time down the road, I may get it rechambered...we'll see.
I really liked the Featherweight stock, but it didn't accept my bi-pod very well which I use a lot, so I had to pick functionality over looks.
Yep...it's a SWFA SS 3-15x42. It's a great scope. I'd recommend it to anyone.
Thanks for the complements fellas. I'm excited to get it the range...hopefully this weekend. I'll make sure to report back.
