Well I had a bunch of rifles I wanted and what not mostly a custom cheytac but I think if you have to scrape the bottom of the barrel then you don't need it. So I ordered a small savage 111model long range hunter sku 19842. It came to 1018$ with shipping insurance +30$ fir not paying with cash. That was on 1/19/2012 it just moved to the shipping department yesterday. So its gonna be awhile but im already buying ammo.I bought a box of hsm 300gr tactical otm in 3.760" oal.now I found a company called cpcartridge and they list 280gr lrx for 135$ per box. Will this bullet work in my 1:9 twist barrel? Plan is to use a ss20x42 scope yeah I know its not a nightforce but its built tough and will work.
