    What does Badger's new brake look like? , you gotta keep us informed on how it shoots and how the brake works.

    What are you looking to get out of that rig performance wise like what bullets and such?

    Oh yea and by the way that is one sweet rig

    Badger top bottom and rings
    Tactical bolt knob
    Teflon flat black
    M-4 8.5-25
    A-5 50%green 25%gray 25%black
    Just started breaking it in one mild load first 3-shot group was in the .3's 1st 5-shot group was in the .4's with three of the rounds in the same hole /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif Cant wait to get som time off to shoot and work up a load. When i figure out how to post a picture I will.

    By the way the smith was Chris Matthews.
    Ours must have been created around the same time just got it two weeks ago. Now I need a 30 Cal. like yours.

    Rimfire.. yeah.... ours were created at the same time... I remember Chris saying he had finished yours got it shipped and mine was next...
    I hope my weather holds .. it has been crappy.. we are getting all that stuff from California...

    The badger break as far as I know the ports look a tad bigger and they are more at 9/3 than 10/2 ...

    I hope to get 2800 fps + with a 220.. but we'll see

    the fun part is trying new stuff!!!

    any more questions fire away!!!

    Ric

    Ric if you have not tried the Badger break yet ..watch out!! your going to fall in love with the thing..I just had a .338 Lapua built with one and with max loads it feels like a hot .308 or maybe a 06 at the most. Let us know how you like it...ohh yeah it does not seem to be that loud either.
