Re: newbie from Alaska!

Thanks! It's a .30-06 losok custom built on a howa 1500 action, ER shaw 22" heavy barrel hogue overmold stock. Trigger job, action trued, all ferrous parts of the rifle will be heat treated with nitride, egw 20moa base, tps rings, and a konus m30 6.5-25x44mm to top it off, guaranteed sub .5" groups at a 100yards.

I chose the .06 for the versatility, cheap surplus ammo and the longer barrel life over the magnum rounds. Planning on loading up some 208gr Amax bullets for it. It's still 2 months out and I'm wishing I ordered it earlier!
