    That a fine lookin unit, hope it works well for ya!
    Not to take anything away from your effort but the night before last I handed my shooting partner a 7WSM barrel already threaded for a small shanked Savage, a long action stock, a left handed bolt with a magnum bolt head,three boxes of shells, a set of RCBS 7WSM dies and he handed me some cash
    We had agreed to go shooting the next day and he shows up with his usual 300WSM and 7mag but instead of his Savage 25-06 he has swapped all those 7WSM parts onto that action. Heck I sold him that action a couple years ago because the base screws where not lined up right and it shoots to the left more than most scopes will allow for.
    Well? Not only did the left handed bolthead fit the right handed bolt but it ejects shell better than his bone stock 300WSM The only thing he didnt have worked out was the Base/scope issue with the action. He could however get a group on paper by aiming at the right side of the target @ 100 yards.
    Long story short that dang parts gun put six shots into a 1/2" group @ 100 yards...As I'm writeing this he is probably pinning the base in line with the barrel so he can outshoot me again tommorow....
