Your rifle is just flat-out bad-ass! Shooting a great big bad-ass cartridge! What will you hunt with it?

Be sure to post your shooting results. It's always nice to know that a beautiful rifle can shoot.

Cheers fellas, the overall weight with scope and 9-13 bipod is 13lb.

This will be used for all sorts, mainly long range deer, chamois and Tahr. Of course will have to partake in shooting some rabbits at long range, goats, pigs and wallabies etc

Yes its the medium, I think he did a slimmer medium as well which was not as wide across the top, personally I like the look of a slab brake
