    Thanks to a good buddy, she's dressed to kill:D

    After seeing TMR's twins, my rifle was " Green with envy"

    I'll take her on it's maiden voyage next month to Alaska and see if it'll push a 300gr SMK through both shoulders of a Black Beargun)

    Hey, that looks familiar:D:D:D

    Nice job. Be carefull for a couple weeks with the bore solvent. After that, the stuff is bullet proof.

    What type of barrel and contour did you use on this rifle and how does it shoot?

    The barrel is a 28" Lilja in a Sendero taper. It's a shooter. Here's a 3 shot group @ 100yards. 1/2" outside to outside.

    Gamedog,

    What's your load for the 1/2" group? OAL also if you will.

    I just bought a Lilja #7 contour, 28" finish .338 for a future Edge build and plan to shoot the 300's.

    I'm using 94.5gr of H1000 in Remington brass. COAL is 3.774.
    Velocity comes in right at 2857 fps.
