    When we go out to the range together we laugh and talk about wind together.. she likes going long...:cool:

    525 yds 3 shots. around 2"
    [​IMG]

    909 yds (3 new hits) around 7 inch
    [​IMG]

    1019 yds. (wind got me.. 3rd off the plate but it would have been KILLER!)

    this is her heritage....

    Chambered in .338-.408 cheytac improved.
    BAT action
    Benchmark barrel
    Russo stock
    Jewel trigger
    Muscle brake
    SB scope


    Hopefully Her and I will get some good (but clean) video for your viweing pleasure this weekend when we travel to S. Tx together for whitetail.. :D

    The rifle shoots incredible! And as always Joel kicked a** on the stock!!!

    Under Joels "guidance" load development was a breeze as well as the whole build process for this rifle!

    I do plan on cerakoting it black after season... think it will look better against the bubinga stock.

    (Wolf Whistle) - That is a sexy woman!!!

    That is an interesting build to say the least. How much is the Cheytac brass, and how hard is it to find. She sure does shoot nice!

    What about recoil? What is your load?

    I am using bertram brass.

    The recoil is nothing with that brake... there is some blast but no shoulder recoil...

    Yeah, the verdict might still be out on coating her...gun)

    As usual, it was a pleasure working with you on this project.
    Your shooting ability enables you to take advantage of the capabilities of the rifle.
    After you play with it this season, pull it apart and splash some Graphite Black on the metal, then give her a name.... She needs some warmth my friend....
