    Mr. Chapman does some great work!! I had him slick up a rifle or two for me when I lived up toward Bellingham. Nice looking rig.

    Nice rifle and excellent group. Lately, I've been neglecting my other rifle in favor of my 308. This round is addictive. Good round to honed your skill. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif
