    Here she is, please excuse the cell phone photo, its the best I could do at the time. This is my Roberts Precision 280 Rem. The idea behind the rifle was "light, but capable". My plan is to use this as a mid range gun, 600 being about tops.

    Here's the rundown:
    Roberts Precision Custom action (Stiller)
    Bartlien #3 1-9 finished at 26"
    Jewll trigger set at 2lbs
    Bedded into HS hunting stock (PSS 010)
    PTG Bottom metal
    20 MOA Stiller rail
    NF UL rings
    MK 4 4.5-14x50 w/ ill. TMR

    Cant wait to get the range data tomorrow. (I'll post it)

    Thanks gents,

    Everything I have seen out of this shop is 100% one hole. No reason to believe this one is anything but.

    Here's what she shot with fact Federal ammo. When load development begins, I'm sure it will get even prettier. This was rounds 2-4 out of the gun. I couldnt be happier with the performance.
