    Well finally got all the parts in. Mine is the B&C stock and the father inlaws is the Manners stock. Both rifles have these parts Stiller actions,Broughton 5C barrels,Jewell triggers,Wyatt follower systems,Obernoff bottom metal. Both are fully glass bedded and 20MOA scope rails,father inlaws has a NF 5.5-22-56 scope and mine has a Elite Bushell 4.5-32-50 scope(temporary). Need to have it warmup up here in Alaska to go breakin properly. I'm pretty stoked to have in done,by the way they are chambered in 300 RUM MATCH. On a different issue, quick question on glass. Does a NF 3.5-15-56 enough power for 1000 yard shoots or should I go with NF 5.5-22-56 (RETICLE will be a NPR-1 OR NPR-2)??? Input would be nice. Thanks.

    Thanks for the props, needs to warmup a hair up here in Fairbanks,Alaska. Can do on the shooting part,have to probably get reload info on here. Been thinking about the 200 Accubonds and some 220 to 230 Berger bullets.

    3.5-15x56 is more than enough. Ive shot pretty good at 1k with a 10x, but i like the 14x-16x range the best (I've tried 20x on the top end and didnt like it). NPR-1 is a nice reticule. I would also look at the Vortex HS 4-16 FFP with the XLR reticle for a cheaper option, or the 4-16 PST with a EBR-MOA reticle. Both are very well thought out MOA based.

    NICE STICKS!!
