    This rifle was built by Chris at Longshot rifles,as i have said before Chris is great to work with,and builds a great shooting rifle.
    Here's a product review on the components i chose for the build.
    1).Stiller Predator
    It feeds well,very smooth,seems a little tighter then the 700s i have been using.Very happy with it.

    2). Broughton 5c 5.5 contour
    Cleans easy,shoots great,what else can you ask for.

    3). McMillian HTG Adjustable Cheek piece
    Like the fit and feel,also like the adj. cheek.I'm using a Nightforce with a 56mm abj. with the adj cheek i can bring it up for a good cheek weld.Two things i don't like.The lock down screws on the side of the stock for locking the cheek piece in place are cheaply made,and stick out a ways from the stock(already broke one).

    4). Rifle Basix trigger
    Breaks clean and chrisp,very wide footprint for your finger,works great.

    5).Vais Brake
    Works good,looks good.

    6). Nightforce 5.5-22x56 NP-R1
    This is my first Nightforce,always used leopolds before.Very clear,tracks well,and is easy to use.The np-r1 reticle is fast to use for your holdovers.I like it alot,is it worth the extra money,i think so,but time will tell.

    Overall i'm very happy with the gun.Its without a doubt the most accurate hunting rifle i've ever owned.Would i buy another L.S.R. YES!!!!
    Here's some pictures of the rifle,and a few targets.

    Some 200 yard groups

    This is the best 200 yard group so far.

    515 yards would have been one hell of a group without that flyer.

    good deal, i have almost the exact same gun being built by chris except for a couple of things, mine will be a 300wsm, no brake and a 50mm obj instead of 56mm, stock will be a different camo but everything thing else is exactly the same

    what is the balance like?
    weight?

    Shootone,
    The balance feels good.Ready to roll, about 10 pounds.
