    I just recieved my snipe-tac 338 from Dave at Viersco Mfg. It was a long wait but let me tell you it was worth it. I broke the barrel in just as he instructed me. This rifle is a blast to shoot. Here are some of the specs:

    Lawton 8000 long action, chrome – moly fluted bolt.
    Lawton 32" 1 in 11 twist ss barrel with a Ti brake.
    Jewel trigger set at 15 oz's.
    Lone wolf carbon stock, black/grey.
    30 moa Scope mount.
    Night force 8-32 scope npr1.

    Nice pictures! Nice group out of the back of a pickup. Pretty nice country down there in Tenn. Too bad your limited on distance, id like to see some 1000+yard groups.

    Black diamond I working on that now. I got a place to shoot little over 1300 yards. I hope to have some reports in a week or so. I am going to shot 1000 yards again tomorrow. I am getting 7 firing out of my brass and still going.

    John,
    That is good news on the brass life, i would anneal the necks at the 4th or 5th firing so you dont have any neck splits.

    shroud??

    So what's with the different bolt shroud? What is the overall weight with the nightforce onboard? Thanks, Brad

    What do you mean about the different bolt shroud? Are you talking about the natural aluminum finish?

    If i remember the bare rifle was around 12#, maybe John can weigh the rifle as is and report back.
