Well, after a 14 month wait (which felt like an eternity) I finally received my first custom rifle. The rifle is a 300 Jazz (300 Norma with a 30 degree improved shoulder) and it was built by Nate Dagley (SSG) and Chad Dixon (LongRifles). Nate did the barreled action and Chad did the stock, bedding and Cerakote.
I’m very pleased with the rifle. It looks great and is very accurate so far. While fire forming brass I shot a 1.14, 1.11 and a 0.86 inch group (all were different loads) at 300 yards. Needless to say I will be fire forming the rest of my brass with the load that shot 0.863. I can’t wait to stretch it out.

What bullet are you shooting?
I was wondering if you were going to comment. I read some of your posts while I was trying to decide on a caliber. Nate throated it for the 210's, but I plan on switching to the 230's if I can push them fast enough to justify it.
