    it shoots great. barely broken in, 65 rounds down the tube, just getting strated load development but finances dictate I need to sell it. it weigh's 10 lbs as you see it with the scope.

    Is this a single shot? What is the max coal. Or what is the length and type of bullet.you shoot out of this set up? Since it is a short action if you were to convert it to a repeater do you have it throated shorter to accomodate a shorter coal?

    I shoot 180 bullets, not shortened. long styory short, i felt that a singl shot on a short action (shorter receiver less opportunity for deformation, shorter bolt lest deflection etc.) triple pillared, single shot. no need to short throat or shorten COL.
    cannot be converted to a repeater wihtout modifting the receiver to allow longer COL.
