    That is one cool rig.

    What is the barrel length and bullet/velocity is it capable of doing?

    Looks nice Eric!
    I have not done load development yet, so I am unsure.

    When I got done working up a load it shot pretty well. I shot some groups at 200 just under 1/2 inch.:D

    I really dig that fluting on a pistol, not so much on a rifle but on that it's sharp!!

    3085 is good for a 18" barrel.

    Chuck (Mac's Gunworks) did a great job on chambering, brake, and fitting everything and Eric (ewallace) did a great job making the stock and bedding it.

    Chuck also did the load development. Just over 1/2" (5-shot group) at 300 yards is pretty good.

    I will be using the new NEO Coaxial Rest this week shooting out to 1000 yards and I can't wait:D

    That is some serious looking gun. Fluting really sets it off. Keep us posted on how it shoots. Enjoy.
