    My brother picked up the first of two we're having built. The accuracy is good a little under .5 MOA and we are hoping that it will improve after we get 100-150 rounds through her. We'er getting around 4000 fps with a Barns 100gr TSX. the barrel is a Pacnor #3 fluted, 27" 3 grove chrome molly. The rifle weighs a little under 8lbs.

    We are very pleased with her,to get this kind of accuracy out of a 8lb rifle with this round and velocity is verey good.
    I have a second one ordered which will have a 28" ABS 5R barrel. I think the second rifle will be intresting the ABS barrel It will weigh just over 2lbs but be as stif as a #6.

    Very good looking rifle. Kevin and I have talked about your 270-300 several times, I want one just like it. I love 270 cal rifles, and yours is as slick as they come.
    What kind of velocity are you getig with the 130gr TSX?
