    Its a RPA International Highland Stalker.. started to develop some ammo for it
    using sierra 142gr match and some 44.2gr VV160 it needs one grain more
    think i am in between sweet spots..
    The scope is a Premier Reticles 5-25 love that scope was trained with Hensold fixed 10X in the army and that fells like stone age when compared ...
    is waiting for the silencer its going to be one Ase-Utra Jet-Z compact

    I like it, particularly the cartridge. You ever try VV N560 in the Swede? I want to try it but I'm afraid I'll like it too much and at $46/lb it could become an expensive habit in a hurry not to mention that availability seems to be an issue too. By the way, does your reloading bench smell like patchouli?:D

    Have not yet tried the VV560 but i have ordered some to try.. in the 308w i have used VV540 to replicate 3006 successfully so i guess it will be a blast in the swede and yes it has that special smell when you mention it.. i maybe hallucinating but......:rolleyes:
