    Here a pic of another Russo stock that I finished up last week. This color of stock is one of my favorites. I think the blue/black color is just awesome. Joel did a great job but don't tell him I told you so, I don't want his head to grow to big before he has a chance to finish up my next stock.

    What is the rifle's weight? All up, as they say across the pond.

    Nice build as usual Jason.

    This stock is larger than the standard A-5L. It was designed to be proportionally correct to accept the Lawton 8000, Stiller TAC 408, Hall, BAT10", and the other larger actions.

    Beautiful rifle. Shooting the 350gr SMK's, I would want a 21# stick also.

    I've got a Krieger on order 1.250 for 5.0 then taper to .900 @ 31" so I was curious as I thought your barrel contour might be similar and appears to be except yours is thicker/wider. Thanks for responding it has helped me get a feel for what my barrel contour/shape might look like. Good luck and Enjoy.
