    Im sure with that weight and muzzle brake, it will be a pleasure to shoot. Whats the twist rate? Depending on twist I am pretty sure you can shoot 200+ grain bullets to really get that high BC to shoot at some long range targets. Anything can be a hunting rig! Just work out and that 15 pounds would be nothing in no time!

    Post pics when you get it shooting.

    I just put it on the scale and amazingly I was almost correct, 15.5 lbs. and its a 10 twist, I have two boxes of 208 gn A-Max's that will be traveling down that tube.

    What brake are you using? I just picked up a 5r in 300wm also and am getting ready to put some stuff on it to make it more personal.

    I have 2 actually, 1 from Nathan Wright, Home Page and this one pictured, a friend gave it to me and I cannot remember what kind it is. Actually he is a member here, Clever. Both are timed so I can use them interchangeably, I think I will stick with this one, but we will see.
