    Quite a package! I don't think you could go wrong with anything you have mentioned as long as you have the cash:D....Rich

    Nice list of components, good to see your not skimping on the optics. Good luck.

    I may be wrong, but, I think you'll need H-S Precision bottom metal to go with that H-S magazine. In their (H-S Pre.) discription they mean their bottom metal is a direct replacment for BDL bottom metal, without modifications to their stocks. Otherwise, looks like it'll be a nice setup!
