    blacktail2,

    I just ordered a custom from Chris a few weeks ago- very similar to yours.

    Stiller Predator action w/ 20 MOA base
    .300 WSM
    Broughton 5c barrel - #4 contour, 24" long
    Vais muzzle break
    Rifle Basix trigger
    Badger bolt knob
    McMillan Rem Hunter stock
    Seekins Precision Rings
    S&B 3-12X42mm scope

    Its going to be a long wait - I'm anxious to get this baby in my hands!!

    As you said, Chris is a great guy to work with - very patient and no BS!!!

    Let us know how you rifle shoots.

    Jeff

    70grs. Retumbo 175 MK- I was shooting a group on the target next to this one and accidentally put one in this one before I realized it.

    I did change one thing on the gun,went with a 5.5x22 Nightforce instead of the Leupold.
