Biggest fail of 2014 so far... http://www.longrangehunting.com/foru...ea-ftf-128972/

My guess on W3P .308 230 Grain Bullet: G1 .740-.755

    Nice rig! The background of your third foto looks a lot like the place we lived in Rockwell NC for two years.

    OK, Went to Jett's today and tried out the new toy. I was pleased with the results. It maintained 1/2 moa all the way out to 1000yds. I ended up with 67gr of Retumbo, .030 off the lands CCI 250 primers and 270 Norma wsm brass necked down to 6.5. The velocity checked out at 3150 fps. As always any gun I build for myself is for sale. Thanks for the interest. Dan

    How do you like the tactical turrets on the scope? Sightron just recently started producing those. I know their optics are great.
