    This is my latest build, I bought most of the parts here on LRH off of members who might recognize them. This is my first time having a 30 built as I'm a 7mm fan. The first loads I tried were way too hot and had to drop down

    Trued 700 SS action
    28.5" McGowan Barrel Sendero contour w/ muzzle brake chambered in 300 Win Mag*
    Extra heavy recoil lug
    A3 Edge McMillan Stock*
    Jewell Trigger
    steel 20 MOA rail*
    5.5x22x50 Nightforce scope*
    * parts picked up here on LRH
    Norma Brass*, load is 76gr Retumbo w/ 210 Berger VLD Hunting*

    1st pic is the rifle and the second is my first 3 shot group a bit breezy here today

    Sure is a beautiful rifle. Hopefully you have a good supply of components to do a fair amount of shooting with it. Love it!

    I have a box of 500 210 Bergers and 100 pieces of new Norma Brass and several pounds of powder so shooting for awhile should not be a problem, Here is something I didn't notice right away with the Harrells tactical brake,

    The first pic is the top of the brake and the 2nd is the bottom of the brake. I suppose to give a little less muzzle lift and less debris being blown
    The difference between the vents on the top vs the bottom is .23". I'm sure this is clear as mud but....

    Did you paint the stock? Do the 210 burgers cycle in the magazine? How about a package price- rifle, scope, bullets, dyes,brass?

    Can you throw out anymore info on the rifle? Twist, bedding etc? What is the price for everything but the scope, shipped?

    Thanks
