    Not sure if I'm smart enough to post pics but will try.
    Received my new build from Dan Glover @ DCGS and it's absolutely beautiful. This morning I took it out for some break in as I had randomly loaded up some 140 BT's not knowing anything about the rifle as it was in the build stage. Doesn't matter, it's just 20 shoot - cool - clean shots anyway....
    I only walked down to the 200 yard backstop because I'm basically lazy anyway and it was snowing and blowing like crazy. All that being said the picture is of my 20 break in shots @ 200 yards, blowing snow and rain with some " these should be ok " loads.
    There's no question about it....this guy flat knows how to build a rifle.

    Sweet rifle! Looks like a shooter, too.

    What caliber?

    7RM, 26" Brux, donor action was from 1962 700 rem, action bedded/ squared, great trigger job on original trigger and other stuff we won't bother to discuss at the dinner table tonight.

    The fluted bolt, wich looks way cool is Gun Koted in black as is the bottom metal etc. The action and barrel are done in a satin sliver and the whole thing really looks awesome. An SSG break and Stillar recoil lug pretty much finish it out.
    It's all I wanted and more. Can't wait to do some load work with it.
