    That's a great looking rifle! Be sure and let us know how it shoots after you get it dialed in.

    That kinda reminds me of the Borden actions. Good looking rig for sure. How does the Imp. round mag feed? Which bullet?

    Dern fine looking rig for sure.

    Nice rig. 50moa rail?? You'll have to sight it in for 600 yards - yes?

    It is a nice action. It has an integral recoil lug and has a nice extractor. It feeds great, no problems. I'm shooting 300 gr SMK's loaded .005 off the lands. OAL is 3.725. The mag length is 3.75 so they do fit ok. My scope has 132 MOA of travel and I still have 12 MOA left of down when I zero it at 100 with the 50 MOA rail. It gives me enough adjustment to dial to around 2900 yards depending on the baro pressure. It should go subsonic at around 2450 yards though. I just got a Terrapin yesterday and can't wait to get out and stretch it out.
