    Fifteen months ago I posted this picture of my self and my just born 4th grandchild.

    [​IMG]

    To me it seems like a long time. I think it's time to start training him. He is kind of
    bilingual, He sees food and he says "mas" when he leaves he says "bye"... Smart
    boy.

    I think he likes what he hears grandpa say... But all the jumbo mumbo or mumbo jumbo about
    moa and wind drift has him comfused a little. :D

    Well all one can do is try. :) He just received his first class.

    I see so much of his grandpa in his face.

    Nice looking rifle. Figure the problem out yet?

    I did what you suggested, it made no difference, the barrel still looking in one direction and the scope in another... I tried the rings in another rifle and they're
    right on. Finally I found out that the picatinny base rotates towards the right as
    it goes from rear to front. Right now is drying, I glass beded the base and so far
    there's no rotation of the base. I'll keep you updated...:rolleyes:
    Yes it's a nice rifle... my first ever 338-Edge my finger is itching!!!!!!! You did alright!

    And... you're probably right! :D

    On a Older Savage action...
    The rifle was built using the most inexpensive but functional parts. It's already been
    called the "Poor man's 338" I pray that it shoots like the "Rich man's Custom".

    PM338-RMC See what I mean? :D I'll just keep on dreaming!!!

    It does have a 28" McGowen barrel and was put together by my amigo geargrinder. He refuses to charge me
    for all the workd he's done, he's put many together before and they're shooters.

    BigBuck, you got me going!

    Alright I'll tell you, it's got a Holland style muzzle brake . Not sure how that'll work though
    I've read good stuff about them. :)

    It's a 338 Edge built on a Savage 110 action.
