    Just picked up my new toy from kirby on Friday, and I thought I would share her with you. The barrel I picked was much "beefier" in person than just numbers on paper, but the flutes are deep, and cut some weight. It finished right at 16lbs with Harris bipod, and Midway stock pack. I have been doing the shoot 1 and clean for 10, and shoot 3 and clean for 15 and just finished last night. The best load so far was last night with 100grns of retumbo and a Berger 300grn (1.5" at 300yrds). These were with partially fireformed cases and I am going to play with seating depth a little. It should be a consistant 1/2moa gun when I get done. Let me know what you guys think.

    Specs:
    Stiller Predator Extreme - Single Shot action
    Timney trigger by Stiller
    Manners T2 with 90% Carbon Fiber shell
    30.75" Lilja Fluted barrel. Starts at 1.350 for 6" and tapers to .850
    Ross Schuler 3 port brake
    Stiller 20moa Rail
    Burris XTR Rings
    Nightforce 8-32x56
    Vortex 30mm Bubble
