    It took 2yrs to complete with the wife's full knowledge of what I was doing but not what I was spending. After my first PD. hunt I knew I needed a 223. The problem was my eyes were bigger than my budget but I decided I would build it piece by piece and it finally came together the first of July. That was just in time for a PD. trip to SD. Man does thing shoot. My best shot this trip was 429yds. with a slight crosswind. Not bad for an old fella but that was almost to the top of a ridge and I could not try any farther. After all this work I could not just call it my 223 so I named it "Yellow Dog". This gun is so much fun to shoot it worth the time I had to wait.

    Nice looking P dog rig, if they see that coming and it should make them go in hibernation early.:) Russo always amazes me with his stocks and the pride he takes in them.
