    Just a heads up then if the rifle is already bedded your not going to want to coat your action and put it back in the stock.

    I see great joy in your future, that's me being a fortune teller. Let us know how the break in goes and how much fun you have sighting it in.

    I definitely will i shot it and it the other day and it shoots like a 308 pretty much no recoil. Im used to shooting a 300 win mag in a 7 lb gun so this thing is a dream to shoot. Just need to do some load development and then see how far i can stretch the barrel :D:D:D:D:D:D.

    That is slick! What do you charge per shot to let people try it, LOL? And it sounds like the recoil is very managable. I hope you have a great time in load development too. Keep us updated.

    Nice shooting. What does it weigh without the scope?
