    So the past couple days I been putting together a new build and finally got it finished yesterday. I decided to load up some test loads and head to the range this morning cause I figured I would be by myself, and I was for the better part of the morning. It is a 6BR with a 26" shilen varmint contour barrel. Used a savage action that I picked up last week for $220 and I got the barrel from a member on here for $225 and it's a cheep $70 scope that I had laying around that I put on it. So I have $505 in the gun. Anyway I loaded up some 105 Berger VLDs, 105 A Max, 105 hornady match. Here are some of the groups. All shots were fired at 400yards.
