    Your rifle is just flat-out bad-ass! Shooting a great big bad-ass cartridge! What will you hunt with it?

    Be sure to post your shooting results. It's always nice to know that a beautiful rifle can shoot.

    Cheers fellas, the overall weight with scope and 9-13 bipod is 13lb.

    This will be used for all sorts, mainly long range deer, chamois and Tahr. Of course will have to partake in shooting some rabbits at long range, goats, pigs and wallabies etc

    Yes its the medium, I think he did a slimmer medium as well which was not as wide across the top, personally I like the look of a slab brake

    Coming up to our coldest part of winter so will spend a bit of time practising, our spring which is late October onwards will see it getting some serious use. Usually my winter trips are local day hunts so it should get blooded soon enough

    Great looking rifle.
    I am having one built just like it, should be ready soon.
    Seeing yours just makes me start chomping at the bit!

    Out of interest, what is the overall length of your rifle?

    I suddenly realised that my new rifle may be too long to fit in my gun safe?

    What sort of bag or case do you transport your rifle in. A standard rifle case will not fit "hey"

    I havent measured it but its long! too long for my hard case, too long for the gunbags I own. Almost too long for the safe. I fit it across the front from one side to the other and it just fits in.

    I will have to purchase a longer hard case and a long soft bag for general use

    Rgds, Steve

    p.s will post up some pics of range day results later on.

    That's a real nice looking rifle. You need to take one of NZ's red stags with that baby.
