    Woah! Almost missed this thread. Was out in Ohio shooting with a few members on here. I'll post a few pictures in a day or so.

    Kevin, it didn't take you long to put that rifle together! That stock looks nice with a few coats of clear splashed on it. Mavbe I can twist Judd's arm into shooting that fine piece.

    Ernie, If you force me to, I'll dig out my left hand pattern.

    Looking forward to seeing everyone.

    The stock turnd out great, Thanks again for another quality piece. I'm sure JUDD wil be more than happy to let you pull the trigger a few times. It's like shooting a 22 Rimfire.

    Well here is how she shot! I think I found the sweet spot for the Berger VLD's right around 2985fps. I loaded up 5 rounds with Retumbo 51.5 grains seated the VLD's at the lands with federal mag primers lapua prepped brass. Shot thru the chrono and got a 5fps spread. Here is the group pic

    Retumbo generally is not the powder of choice for that case, but who am I to argue with those results???

    Stretch her legs and see what that load looks like at 300 yards.
