I weighed all the components minus the trigger before I shipped them to Chad and they weighed right at 7 pounds.

    after 2 years, I'm sure he's shot some groups. Might even be ready for a barrel!

    Howdy guys. I forgot all about this post. Chad did an unbelievable job putting this rifle together. Finished weight with Seekins base, rings, and a Zeiss 4.5X14X44 is 8.2 pounds. I really haven't had the chance to shoot it as much I would like. Been working out of town for long stretches at a time. We used a reamer by PT&G set up to seat 168 Berger VLD's just north of the neck shoulder junction. This give me a OAL base to ogive of 2.657 touching the lands. Working up a load I was able to go to 67 gr. of H-4831SC with no pressure signs. It seemed to like 66 gr better. I tried Bergers test of starting at the lands and working back .040 at a time. The best groups were touching the lands. I haven't crono'ed the rounds yet. So far with 66 gr H-4831Sc, Federal 215 primer and the 168VLD set touching the lands these are the average 3 shot 100 yard groups.
