    Looks like a pretty mean rifle to me, I like the styling of the Abolt actions. Its gonna punish you without a muzzle break though.

    Did you do most of the work on your rifle? If not, who did? Keep us posted on how she shoots!

    Great looking rifle, can't beat the lines on the Browning action. Love the short bolt tilt as well. I am liking there actions more and more. Glad to see NO muzzle break on a hunting rifle, we are becoming a shooting nation of wimps, you will be just fine!

    Sorry it took so long to post this, I have been busy. The rifle is a 1/2 MOA or better if I do my part. Here is a link to a video I took yesterday shooting 585 yards.
