New arrival (almost) 338AM 4days and counting

The wait is almost over. Kirby sent me an email with a FedEx tracking number and now its just a waiting game.

The rifle is as follows and I'm betting she will be a shooter.

Bat M 8.5x1.55 Single Shot action (Fluted Bolt)
Bat 40 MOA Steel Rail
Jewell Trigger 1lb pull
Lilja 32" 1-10 Fluted barrel
5 port large slab brake
All Metal work Teflon coated
McMillan A5 with thumbwheel adj cheek piece
SS Pillar bedding
NightForce NXS 3.5x15x50 NP-R2
2 sets NightForce UltraLight rings.

Anyway, she should arrive on Wed. and I'll post pictures as soon as I can.

I just finished segregating a bunch of my 300smk's, everything else was ready months ago.

Good thing that BAT and McMillan took so long, or I'd have the barrel 1/2 shot out by now!

I'll post pictures as soon as I see it. Its still in the FedEx truck until Wed.

I just had to post something, since Kirby was finished with it.

The only thing Kirby told me about how it looked was

This is a quote "She is assembled, DAMN does she look mean!!!"

I expected the Teflon coating to really make a statement.

The A5 is 80%Black 10%Grey 10%White

I promise to post pictures as soon as I get her home.

Yeah, try to imagine it. I ordered it the end of Dec '06. It took BAT and McMillan 9 months to deliver. I'll be using it for an Elk/Bear hunt in Colo. in 3 weeks!
