    Well I got the ball rollin, Mr Neal Cooper is having me one of his beautifull stocks made. I've got my target action coming, and I just ordered my barrel chambered in 6x284, 8 twist 4 groove 19". I also have one of Jim See's muscle brakes.

    Now the crappy part the wait, for those that don't know me I'm very impatient so this is going to kill me.

    For those of you that wish to help me in my time of need please feel free to post pics of yalls stuff and tell me all about them.

    Thanks guys can't wait to show y'all pics of mine,

    Nathan

    Nathan, your going to love that brake, the feedback I'm getting from the pistol guys is that there is nothing better on a handgun for reducing recoil and the concussion effect than the 3 port muscle brake.

    Jim I want to apologize for all the see sawing I've done with you about gunsmith work. As soon as I get all this stuff together if you don't mind I'd love to send it to you and have you install your brake on it.

    Thanks again Jim for making a cool brake,
    Nathan

    I'm going with a right bolt left port savage target action, and decided to go with Mcgowan for the barrel. I had a mcgowan on a 338 edge I used to have, one of the best shooting guns I've ever owned.

    Does anyone have any thoughts on what kind of velocity I may get out of a 19" barrel with the 107 smk or the 105 Berger.

    Thanks guys,
    Nathan

    nddodd,
    glad to see you are back up and running. I have been there and am doing that. I too have been putting together a couple of projects with Neal Cooper stocks (which I think you are going to really, really like) and custom barrels. I know exactly what you mean about the waiting. It will all be worth it though, trust me, you are going to end up with a one of a kind rig.

    Good luck and please keep us posted on your progress.

    More pictures? Ok Nathan, here is just a small sneak peak at the dual port project that Neal has been helping me get put together. Notice the new grip design.
