    I was lucky enough to pick up this beautiful rifle in person towards the end of last summer. With the rush of hunting season, topped with WY winter, I never had a chance to do much more than break in the barrel. But, the big 375 is finally going to get stretched out. With the help of my good friend SenderoMan, the rifle is dialed in and headed to Glasgow, MT with us this weekend for some long range play! Will have more pics and a full report to follow!

    Cinch, good luck up there. Stay out of the mud. Mom says the worst flooding she can remember.

    Ha! I been watching the weather, doesn't look good at all. Hopefully we don't end up sitting in a cafe drinking coffee all weekend. But I guess we'll still end up meeting some good people and learning something. Thanks for the luck, TT!

    Well, took it out to 875 yards, not far... but good starting point.

    First round hit with 14 MOA dialed in. Held abut 1/2 moa wind.

    Think it is gonna be a shooter ! Got video to post up too... soon, try in a little bit.

    Chapstick is 2.75" long. The old hits are 7mm rounds, definitely tell the size difference !

    Way to go . . . on making me homesick.......

    I have nearly the identical rig and won't get to shoot it until 2012gun)

    Kirby's early shots shows its a shooter. My 4 shots, Thanksgiving, were into a far hill to see if I could handle the recoil. What a joke. There was NO recoil.

    I think i'm gonna cry:rolleyes:

    Happy for ya. . . . keep us posted........

    Cinch, now I normally don't offer up my services for free, but because your a nice guy I will help you out on this one, when you come through Idaho just drop your gun off at my place and I will take it out and get her broke in and well taken care of. Should take me about 10 months to finish and I might as well try her out on some Idaho mule deer. So about the first of the year when you come back through Idaho it should be ready for you to pick her up.
    Take care buddy and have fun.

    You know Cinch ever since you first posted pictures of that awesome work of art I have loved it. That you would be great if you posted pictures and a video of your expedition, am sure a good time will be had by all involved, I am green with envy. Have fun and be safe.

    Hope it fits in yours better than it does mine! It's a little on the long side.
