Re: My FIRST build

Very nice.

And I have never seen or read about the Magneto Chrony until I saw what looked like a bayonet hanging off the front of your rifle.

DId a quick search and may have to seriously consider one of these. My gun range is OK with me setting up the Chronometer but when it is busy, I hate to hold everybody else up. This would add so much convenience.

By the way, this rifle is very close to the ideal rifle I am planning in my head.

Have you shot it yet?

Again, very nice, I really like the look of Manners stocks.

Doing load workup it'll shoot a cloverleaf at 200 but I've been fighting brass issues.

Re: My FIRST build

Sweet accuracy then.

Brass issues? Do you have a handle on what is causing your issue or is it up in the air?

Nice rifle, what does it weigh without the scope?

Re: My FIRST build

UPS scales called shipping weight 22lb. I've never had her near the scales. Might upset her and open up the groups. In all honesty, I might scale it this week just to know.
