    Wow...nice shooting. How much does the rifle weigh? Barrel length? What does the stock weigh be itself?

    Eric,that range looks familar! Is that your own personal testing grounds?

    I was trying to read up on the Nawakwa and is that your own lapua improved verison? Different shoulder angle?

    It seems like you could push 3000fps and 300gr with a 30" barrel almost!:cool:
