    This is an awesome forum! I have been reading posts for a long time and just had my first truly custom rifle built. Thanks to all of you for your great posts on interesting topics.

    Thank you!

    Its a Win model 70 action chambered in 7mm rem mag.
    Mcgowan 24" fluted barrel (#4 contour), Jewel trigger, B&C stock, Wiley box. I had the bolt fluted also. Topped with a Vortex PST 4-16 and a 20 MOA rail.

    Right now Im loading 168gr Bergers with H1000. Havent shot it enough to determine the best load yet. Hopefully ill be on the range tomorrow!

    What no photos?
    If I had just build my first custom (which I'm in the process of right now) I'd be bragging with a pic heavy thread :cool:
