    My new stick currently in production, Krieger 28 in 1-81/2 twist fluted #17 contour, Blueprinted Remi 700 long action, badger lug and bolt handle, Sako extractor,Williams floor plate, Pillar bedded into a Mcmillan A5 stock 50% black, 25% grey, 25% OD green, sporting the new Loopy 8.5x25 M1 in TPS Med rings, Harris HBBRM bipod, Neil Jones trigger job set to 21/2lbs. O.K. guys here are the questions,what neck dia and throat length, 284 Win, 284 Norma, etc. Which powder, bullets, primers and brass have you guys had the most success with at 1000 yards. What kind of velocities are you getting. What dies are you using. Man I'm like a kid in a candy store with this one the waiting is killing me. Regards Froggy.
