Not counting glass I have less than $200 invested in the rig.
The rifle did it's job wonderfully despite the 5 to 15mph winds. I had ladder testing loads and had one 3/4 inch 3 shot group.
I basically sighted in my scope, broke it in and got the feel of it. I have never broke-in a barrel before and was pleased to see that copper fouling appears to be greatly reduced. I'm amazed really.
The glass in the scope doesn't seem as good as my Bushnell, but the correction I dialed in was right on the dot. I have only owned and used 2 scopes before, neither of them track as they are supposed to.
They call it a "sporter contour" if I am correct, but I don't know the # if that is what you are asking. I know nothing about barrel contour except "bull barrel". ;)
But I like the stock a lot, especially the buttpad. I don't know if it would be too soft with higher powered rifles, taking eye relief into consideration.
