My new semi-custom 308

- Mike Rock 5R, 1:10 twist, 22" .308 Win barrel
- HS Precision fully adjustable stock
- Remington 700 short-action
- Bedded, action trued, heavy-duty recoil lug, trigger tuned, over-sized bolt handle
- Nightforce 2-piece 20moa tactical base
- Warne medium rings

And I must say, I love it! I'll be seeing what it's capable of this weekend...

Hope it shoots as good as it looks.

I'm not completely familiar with all the various barrel contours. What's the outside diameter of the barrel? it looks as though it has no taper at all - yes?

It's an M40 contour, which is one of the thickest I had available to me. There is a slight taper, but not much, it is also a shorter 22" barrel which will make it taper less. Not sure of the outside diameter, but it's thick, lol
