    These are a few of the groups I shot. All in the threes I shot a total of thirteen groups with this load all under 1/2 min. The last group is five shots. I did things a little different than most. Im using 190 gr Berger VLD over 86 grains of RL 25. I know its a light load but it seemed to like it. I got 3023 fps

    I have been posting over in the Product review thread on the CDS scopes but I couldnt upload pictures there. I ordered a dial for my scope. Its not a CDS but they can make dials for other scopes. Not all of them but some. The dial I got is marked from 200 yds to 1450 yds. I will test it out in a couple weeks and let you all know. The nice thing about these dials is you can still use the screw on cover if you choose to.

    VERY nice looking stick but I'm always a sucker for anything built on a BAT and .30cal is my favorite caliber.

    Looks like a BAT HRPIC receiver, am I right????

    Good looking rifle. I shoot the 190 berger in several of mine. Always go with the accuracy. A 190 berger at over 3000 fps is deadly so don't sweat it.

    Thanks all for the compliments

    Thats it. There the smoothest I have felt. I like it better than my stolle.

    I plan on doing some more testing with seating depth I'm only .010 off the lands now and I cant use the magazine.

    Holy crap what was your first car a Ferrari? LOL

    I love my Bat VRPIC. I have it on my LR hunting rig and it shoots awesome. Alot of people tried to say they wouldn't be good in poor weather conditions due to the tolerances. I have put mine through the wringer in tactical matches in pouring rain in Oregon to hot and dry talcum powder of eastern Washington. No worries functioned flawlessly.

    Nice rig, enjoy!

    No it was actually a 67 Datsun. I lived in a travel trailer when I built this rifle. Its all about priorities. :D
