    Good looking rifle, I'm interested to see how she shoots. I have been kicking around the idea of opening up my 260, it also has the Brux #4 barrel on it.

    How fast are you shooting the 130s with that H1000 charge?

    Didn't chrono these today but in my other saum they run about 3300 with 65 grains of ramshot magnum. I'm guessing these are in the 3250-3275 range.

    Whew......smoking. Any reason for trying the H1000 over the Ramshot?

    None other than I have a ton of it and it'll work good for break in. H1000 is what most of the guys are shooting out of their 6.5 saums. I use Ramshot magnum in my other one and it works well. I will try it in this one as well when the bbl is broke in

    Awesome rifle! Who dipped your game scout? Isn't it Kuiu Verde camo?

    It's kuiu vias. Not sure of the company's name that did it. My smith had it done.
