    That is a good lookin' rig! How does it shoot? (so far).

    I have been looking at getting an SSS LVT stock myself. Can you post a pic of the other side?

    Thanks.

    Nice rifle! You 're going to love the 6BR, it's so freakin accurate it's sick. My 6BR loves the 105grn A-Max. The load I have worked up shoots 5 shot groups in the 0's and in the .1's, at 100 yards, all day long. I am currently using Lapua Brass, Varget Powder and CCI 450 Primer. I am pushing the 105grn A-Max out of my Bartlein 28", 1-8 twist barrel at 2910fps. The 105grn A-Max is an awesome bullet for long range varmint hunting. It blows little varmints up pretty good, not as good as the V-Max, but pretty darn good. Keep us up dated and let us know how she shoots. I am guessing it will shoot very very well.

    Thanks for posting the extra pics. A good lookin' rig and it's a shooter - and it will improve!

    Another question about your stock...can you describe how the adjustable cheekpiece operates? and how do you like it?
