New to site: My build is finished!!!

Specs: Savage action, McGowen 30 inch 1 in 8 twist 280 rem. barrel, XLR stock, SSS trigger set at 18 oz., Vortex Razor HD EBR2-B reticle, 20 Moa base, Harrell precision MB, and I am sure I am forgetting something. Oh she is shooting .3's and .4's pretty consistent with the 162 AMAX's. I have used this forum to answer many questions while building, but now that Excalibur is all finished I decided to join. Let me know what you all think.

Thank you. It is not a light gun at all!!! Empty it tips the scale at 17.5 pounds. I built it knowing I was never going to carry it more then 5 yards from my four wheeler.

Re: New to site: My build is finished!!!

I got the stock from XLR industries. It is the tactical evolution stock with a few upgrades. Ambidextrous cheek piece, monopod rail, pic rail and upgraded shelf grip. It ran around $850 I think and the nonupgraded stock was $790. It is undoubtedly the highest quality piece of machinery I have put on a gun! Fit and finish were bar none customer service was second to none, and I could not be happier...minus the 12 week wait.
