    Laying in bed recovering from surgery follwing a broken ankle two days ago I seen the brown truck pull up and I couldnt get to the crutches fast enough!

    Spec's:

    Rem700 BDL completely blueprinted by Greg Tannel including sleeving of the bolt with Sako extractor and bushed firing pin. Rifle Basix LV-1 set at one pound. Krieger 1-10 chambered with his 300WM Lapua reamer. JWP's photos of his TSX groups prompted me to send three dummy rounds to throat for the 180 grain TTSX. McMillan Lazzeroni stocked and glass bedded with perfection inhouse. Holland recoil lug and Vais brake. NF 5.5x22x50 NP1RR housed in NF lightweight rings set into a Seekings base with 6x48 torx screws. Now I have to consider what coating to finish her off. Teflon, NP3 or cerakote.

    Not the best pics but didn't feel up to taking pics dowstairs on the reload bench. I'm pretty much confined on my back for the next two weeks and this adds to the torture.

    Nice rig. Are you going to use Lapua brass. I heard a rumor that Lapua was no longer going to produce 300WM Brass. If you know where to get some, I would buy it now before you can't get anymore. I heard Powder Valley was carrying this brass.

    I found that out after the chamber was cut and called around. I scrambled and bought 100 count boxes from here and there. I'm sitting on a thousand hulls now. That should last me a lifetime.

    Thanks, Wade

    Nice looking rifle. I'll bet you can't wait to shoot it!
