i'm assuming Bubinga wood is a good choice for stocks?
This rifle was set up to be relatively light weight and medium range say out to 800 yds.
It weighs a shade over 8 lbs, and that's with a 3 lb Bubinga stock.
With the 22" barrel it's shooting the 180 Accubond at 3267 fps.
Accuracy so far has hung around .3" at 100 yards and 1.25" at 300 yards.
Not bad for the Accubond.
Bubinga is a West African dense hardwood, with a specific gravity of about .88.
It makes an excellent stock.
This particular piece is laminated, which makes it that much better.
