Finally the Piffle is ready to go!!!

Well after having a stock on order from HS since 3/12 it finally showed up. I shot this gun in an older Hs silhouette stock and it consistently shot a little less .5 moa off the bench at 100 with minimal load development. Can't wait to go boom some more. Specs below
Rem xp100 action
Chambered in 6x47 Lapua. 1 in 8 twist Brux.
HS varmint stock
Charcoal cerekote
Leupy 6.5-20x50 scope
Currently feeding it H4350 and a 105 JLK.

Re: Finally the Piffle is ready to go!!!

Threads sometimes yield interesting things. I have that same exact scope on my Benchrest 223. It has to be one of the clearest scopes I've ever owned.

I'd kind of wonder how hard it is to hold against recoil.

Recoil of the pistol is very mild with the brake and the fact it weighs 8lbs. I can actually shoot the scope with a full field of view holding on to the gun with one hand and squeezing the rear bag with the other.
