    I just ordered 3 more MATEN reciever sets from Mega Arms and it is a 6 month lead time.

    Looking good! Keep us posted on it as it progresses, and the shooting results when we get to that point.

    Just curious why did you go with a 1-12 twist?

    The 1-12 or 1-11 twist stablizes the serria 168 SMK bullet wonderfully. I load them to M 852 specs.gun)rhinoo 55

    I have a 1:12 on my Rem. M-700. Yes it loves the 168-180gr bullets.
