Thanks guys. No metal was removed from the tang. I just stripped off the old Duracoat and gave it a 220 grit brushed finish.

Re: MCR 338 - 408 Chey-Tac Re-build

JUDD and I were out shooting the beast yesterday. 100 yards was too close and I never planned on shooting this less than 500 yards anyway. We set a target up at 300 yards but after he fired a sub 1" group from his 338 Lapua I couldn't be out done. I moved the target out to 500 yards. By the time I walked back to the gun the damn target blew over. All I had to shoot at was a piece of 2 x 4 about 10" long laying on the ground The first shot went about 3" right 2" high but with a quick change I was able to put 5 shots in the wood in about a 3" group. Guess I can live with a 500 yard zero at the bottom of the scope. Now I have enough clicks to get out to 2500 yards.

We learned three things yesterday...

1) any gun you touch flat out shoots!!

2) we are not even close without a drop charts....lol

3) I can't paint worth a sh!t !!


The Cheytac is a sweet pice of Machinery ...well under an 3" at 500 is impressive!

I tend toward more traditional looking long range rifles( if it looks similar to a 77V or 700V or 70V its cool) and AWAY from the freakier looking dusky rose mauve rifles etc. But I gotta admit, you have impressed this old man. Your rifle looks pretty dang cool !!! Good job!
