    Very tempting, but I just finished a Creedmoor build. I'm surprised it hasn't sold yet.

    I am too as It is a heck of a deal considering what it cost to build.

    Nevermind it's a laser and isn't even broke in yet. IT will be a true one holer.

    Sweet rifle. A few questions.
    Who did the work on it? Do you mind sharing what bullets were used and speed you are getting? Where are you in sw mt? I'm in kalispell.

    Roger Burch is the smith. (Roger's Rifle Shop)
    He does a lot of LR rifles as well as Local and Fed. Law Enforcement in the State of UT.

    I was shooting 139 Scenars at 3000 fps. I have many many bullets(Scenars, AB's Amax's, SMK's), Brass, Dies, Primers and 8 lbs (in 1lb cans) of H4831sc. I also have 6-8 lbs of IMR 7828 reg. and ssc) which is also a super performer in this cartridge.

    I'm in Three Forks and I will be delivering a horse to Kalispell Sun/Mon. Would be easy to pack it with me ;-)

    Just a fyi,

    I am also using 139's in my 6.5 CM but not pushing past 2750. (need to make the barrel last) I started sing 142 SMK but they vary too much in weight unlike the Lapua's that are EXACTLY 139. I used up most of the SMK and almost a box of the Scenars so I thought I'd look at Hornady's 140 HPBT. They just a tad shy of the 139 and 142 BC's but every single one is weighing in at 140 and I am getting great results over Superformance or 8208. Of course, with the 06 case, one needs a bit slower burn rate.

    You'll move it, there's someone for every gun..
    Or should I say, a gun for someone..

    The Bushnell scope Cocadori has is the XRS model I believe. 34mm main tube, front focal plane. I've got 21 mils up left in my elevation with a 20 MOA rail.
    It is a great scope for clarity. I could see a small kicker on a buck this year at 1100 yards.
