    Neat looking rig in my favorite caliber. What bullet do you plan on using? What is your intended use hunting? F-class? Let us hear those results.

    I plan to use it for hunting deer, antelope and coyotes and as a loaner if somebody needs one for f-class. I know it will be heavy for walking, but I will have a light one(300wsm) for that if I can't hack it. I take my parents out who are in their mid seventies so the weight will help with the recoil for my mom. I am hoping to get a 115 Dtac's to work and it looks promising. I am still in the break in period. With deer season three weeks away here the ranges are all nuts. As soon as I get the development done I will post some results.

    Thanks

    That's a great rig. I especially like the stock. I plan to use that stock on my .308 build. I'm curious to know who's cheek piece did you use? do you have a website?

    I will have to do some checking for you 308 nate was ordering a few and I just asked him to get one more. I will get back to you or maybe nate will chime in and tell you either way you will get the information. I love the B&C stocks but in the near future I will acquire a A5 just because I am trying to keep the same feel(scope, trigger, stock) on my rifles and I love the marble look they have.

    I talked with nate today and he said he would post the info.


    I went out today and done some shooting at 410yds with a wind blowing from 6 to 11mph at 3 O'clock. The 115 Dtac's did well. I don't have it fine tuned but I would definately feel I am on the right track. I shot 10 rounds five with 41.2gr and 5 with 41.4gr and this is what I came up to.

    Now I know the weakest link in this setup is the nut behind the trigger.:D

    The only bad thing is once you shoot at this AR400 a few times you can't see where you impact was a couple of rounds ago from the bullet splatter.

    this was my first three rounds I sent down and the barrel was clean.
