Looks good Johan.
Your smith diden't have any trouble with that trigger did he?

I little trick that I have learned with those cheap new Remmy strock os to hog out all the BS little braces in the forend and bed in a couple 1/4" titanium rod from the recoil lug to the sling stud then fill the whole forend with the bedding compound. I use 4 pieces of duct tape run long ways up the barrel from about 1" in front on the lug to a couple inches past where the stock would end this will give you around .050" gap around the barrel to free float the stock , it realy helps with stiffening the forend

Hi

He did not use your trigger, only a lighter spring from it and then polished the original trigger group, but it came out just as I want it :-)
Anyway, feels good to have one in spare just in case :-)

Thanks for the tip about the stock. I was to the range to day and tried it with a scope mounted for the first time. I was far to the right and a little high, when I had adjusted so I hit about where I was aiming almost all adjustment to the left was used. :-( (I shot on 80m only to day)
I have now put in the offset inserts in the Burris rings to see if that can help.
I noticed that if I torque the rear screws on the base the front part of the base tilts a little to the right showing a gap between reciver and base. So the base is in a little tension and Ill have to bed it. I just dont hope that the holes for the base are off center of the action...
I was shooting the David Tubbs final finish bullets to day so I cant say much about accuracy yet.

The DE brake was GREAT! The rifle now feels as a light Tikka M55 in .243 I had before. :-)

Here is a small video from todays shooting.

My friend Blank noticed somthing strange on the video file. The barrel bends quite a bit. I have done a slow motion clip where it can bee seen clearly.
Clip

Is it normal that the barrel bends that much?

I think that most of that is optical illusion ,like waving a pincel betewwn two fingers makes it look like rubber , BUT , yes you would be supprised how much a barrel moves. I watched some slow motion video of a barreled action being shot from a solid machine rest attached only by the action so their was very little movementother than the barrel and that thing realy wobbles especialy the thinner barrel with the bigger calibers
