    I have had the A3 sporter, mcmillan sako 75, and the mcmillan tikka stock and i like this gamescout by far the best. Feels excellent in the hand and balances so well. Excellent look, feel and workmanship. This is basically the top end i could get. Thanks for looking.

    I have all the stuff except the bullets. My shipment of 180 gr berger hybrids should be here on monday and then i should shoot it over thanksgiving. Conservative loading from talking to Mike was 180's at 3050 but you could push them to 3100. Slick package and the bipod works well.

    They are going to do a barreled action for me in 7LR. I'm shipping the parts off next week. They told me around 4-6 weeks turnaround. When it's done, it should be an excellent light(er) hunting rifle. I'll be posting reports when I finally get it shooting.
