Re: Shot my first build!!

Bigngreen,

Congratulations! That's a great milestone.

I have to believe you've made an excellent start since you haven't even broken in the barrel or worked up a load yet.

I'm still gathering tooling and making jigs. But, I'm pretty stoked myself and share your excitement.

    Looks like you have a good thing going. How are your 338 projects coming along.

    Good Job, Jason

    I felt up a Brux 338 1-10 twist Med Palma barrel this afternoon that will be a 338 RUM for my buddy, he also has the Savage action and I have one four port Muscle Brake left and the reamer so this will be the next one to get built. He had his hands on the Brux in about 4 weeks and he score the action on Gunbroker now the 14-16 week wait for a P-dog stock from Stockade, I may have to inlet it into a 2x4 so we can shoot it before that

    I'm out there for a week in the middle of May

    Sorry, my bad. I would not be surprised it shoots better at 300 yards. I've seen it more than once.

    Sweet we should be around and slowed down by then. Also if you remember our triathlon is the 21st of may if you are interested I can get you on my team. I too am waiting on parts the barrel for my gun should be here may 1st so I will have it up and smokin by the time you come through. But if not we have my sons rig done and dialed in, so I have a back up.
