    Thanks,

    I did myself the painting job. Few camo painting cans and a branch tree and leave your imagination to fly.

    300,

    Did you look at using H1000 ? From all the homework I did on the round it seemed 90 % of guys here were. Apparently the retumbo will get them going faster, but more temp sensitive and less consistant velocity spreads ? Only what I am told, so I'm learning as I go too.

    By the way , how did you come up with the custom add on piece to your stock ? It kinda looks like a HS sf1 sendero stock as the base ??

    DUH
