    Very nice.

    And I have never seen or read about the Magneto Chrony until I saw what looked like a bayonet hanging off the front of your rifle.

    DId a quick search and may have to seriously consider one of these. My gun range is OK with me setting up the Chronometer but when it is busy, I hate to hold everybody else up. This would add so much convenience.

    By the way, this rifle is very close to the ideal rifle I am planning in my head.

    Have you shot it yet?

    Again, very nice, I really like the look of Manners stocks.

    Doing load workup it'll shoot a cloverleaf at 200 but I've been fighting brass issues.

    Sweet accuracy then.

    Brass issues? Do you have a handle on what is causing your issue or is it up in the air?

    Nice rifle, what does it weigh without the scope?

    UPS scales called shipping weight 22lb. I've never had her near the scales. Might upset her and open up the groups. In all honesty, I might scale it this week just to know.
